There are three separate ski areas, two of which are linked by cable car, and including some really lovely runs through the trees back down to town. It would be remiss of us not to mention the resort's low altitude, which can sometimes mean questionable snow conditions, but when the skiing is good it's lovely (and there are plenty of snow cannons). This is somewhere that's especially good for beginners and intermediates and there's a great selection of lovely restaurants for lunch on the pistes for dedicated bon skiveurs. Gnarly-types can, of course, always head up the road to Chamonix for a day of couloirs and black runs.
Back in town the contrasts from Chamonix continue, with Megeve tending more to genteel wandering around the glamorous shops or taking to the ice rink rather than hectic nightlife, but when you get to stay in hotels as spoiling as those on offer then that's not necessarily a hardship.
