This is an excellent place to ski for beginners intermediates and experts alike. It links to the Megeve area which is huge and the area benefits from queue free lifts and excellent restaurants as well as a really good selection of pistes and some lovely little off piste runs that do not track out as quickly as nearby resorts.

A beautiful village with a fantastic atmosphere and beautiful views on the Mont Blanc. Prices are lower than in Megeve and there are many more Frenchmen as opposed to Megeve where you will find a huge amount of Russians.

The 0n-slope restaurants offer high quality food , not the usual cheap snack. You will find many nice little mountain huts where you can eat very tasty for a reasonable price, but it is not exactly cheap

I love the breathtaking beauty of the place, with lovely and varied tree-lined runs coupled with stunning views of Mont-Blanc and surrounding peaks. There are many nice huts to eat in on the mountain; we liked the Mont Joux and the 2 places in Les Communailles, particularly. That said, as in almost every French resort, food and drink are a tad expensive. Would agree that Saint Gervais is mainly an intermediate's ski area, but with over 400km of available pistes to aim for, all but the best of experts will stay interested. Tthat being said there are loads of off-piste possibilities. Although not all sectors are lift or piste linked, transport is easy (especially with a car), so exploring the

Skiing in Saint Gervais is pretty good, there is plenty to ski and some of it quite challenging. The upside for the low mountain myth, is that challenging terrain is pretty much empty, as beginners et al stick to lower runs. Food good and reasonable. Not far off the main road. Near Megeve and Chamonix. I would recommend this resort to young families. It is very quiet and relaxed, with beautiful scebery. This is definitely not a party town!

We visited St Gervais in March 2008. Whilst we had a good time (stayed in apartments near the telecabine) the snow conditions were very poor and we will think again before returning to a low resort. Our timing was bad, but the slopes were not varied enough for our intermediate abilities. This would no doubt be a good resort for families (snow permitting) as it is quaint, has rustic restaurants and a charming old town. We didn't want much in the way of nightlife, but the place was pretty much deserted at night and the bars were quiet. We ended up going to Chamonix (Vallorcine is amazing!) for a few days where the snow/skiing was much better. Think again if you want any form of entertainment i
