New Six-Seater Chair For Megève

A new six-seat chairlift will open up a previously little skied area of Megève, according to a long-established ski holiday company in the famous French resort.

The new chair lift will replace a rickety old one at the small village of Chattrix, near St. Nicholas de Veroce, says John Kinnear whose family-run Stanford Skiing Company has specialized in Megève for more than 30 years and has permanent staff in the resort.

“The Epaule run from Mont Joly is in my view the best piste in Megève. It’s about 7km starting on a ridge with stunning close-up views of Mont Blanc and finishes winding through the trees to Chattrix,” says John, adding, “It was only spoilt by the slow lift back and an exposed corner near the bottom, which faces west, making the snow heavy at the end of season. The corner is being redesigned and the new express lift will make it even more enjoyable.”
