Megeve Snowboard & Freestyle

Megeve is best for beginner and intermediate snowboarders. Advanced boarders and freestyle skiers can entertain themselves in the four terrain parks, the biggest and best of which is on Mont d’Arbois.

Beginner and intermediate snowboarders have an excellent choice of wide, cruising blue and red runs in Megeve, perfect for practising riding those edges. 

As Megeve is such a well-heeled resort, there are few button (aka “poma” or “platter pull”) lifts. The beginners’ area on Mont d’Arbois frustratingly has button lifts but Petit and Grand Vorasset can be avoided by riding the Mont d’Arbois gondola. Rochbrune’s green pistes are also accessed by button lift, but you can also bypass them by riding the Caboche gondola.

Boarders on the cusp of advanced who do not like moguls should note that the Ecureuil, Rosay, M Dujon, Voltigeurs, Emile Allais black runs all tend to bump up, as does the Slalom red run and the Grand Tetras and Cabri in Jaillet, which sometimes can have patchy snow.

Near the Grands Champs chairlift in Rochebrune there is a small terrain park, but the best terrain park in Megeve is on Mont d’Arbois, by the Mont Joux chairlift. It has a man-made half pipe, as well as a large selection of kickers for all abilities. There are also a few rails and boxes. Both Combloux and Le Giettaz have parks, with the former the better equipped.

In addition to 445km of pisted terrain, Megeve has lots of off-piste terrain for advanced skiers and boarders including excellent off-piste at Cote 2000, Mont Joux and Mont Jolie.
