Evasion Mont-Blanc in short

  • Skiing at the foot of the Mont Blanc
  • Off-piste paradise
  • Great choice of ski resorts

The Evasion Mont-Blanc is a vast ski area in France which offers access to no less than 400km of stunning ski slopes in the French Alps. The Evasion Mont-Blanc is equipped with nearly 120 ski lifts, with its different areas partially interconnected. The ski area covers an immense area stretching between the resorts of Megève, Saint Gervais, Saint Nicolas, Combloux and Les Contamines. The Evasion Mont-Blanc is easy to reach from the UK as it's just a quick drive from Lyon Airport.

Les Contamines is a traditional mountain village that has survived the rise in tourism and still manages to emanate peace and tranquillity. The imposing Mont Blanc lends a unique backdrop to Les Contamines. In the heart of the Evasion Mont-Blanc ski area lies Megève, one of the oldest and most charming ski resorts in France. St. Gervais, elegant and quiet, is considered the “senior lady” of French winter tourism. Keep in mind that the ski slopes in the different village of the Evasion Mont-Blanc linked ski area are not all perfectly interconnected, so you will have to leave yourself plenty of time to get back to your base village before the end of the day.
