Maybe you will be drawn to the stunning town of Lech in Austria or St Anton famous for it’s lively après ski.  All are beautiful places to discover with walks in the glorious fresh air, spa days, fine dining, horse drawn carriage rides, hot air ballooning, lovely town centres to shop and to explore; even the non skier can have a thoroughly enjoyable skiing holiday experience!

At Elegant Address Ski, we are passionate about Skiing in Europe.  With many airlines now bringing down the prices of flights and giving so many route options, it has never been easier to travel and after visiting the wonderful ski resorts that Europe has to offer, the only difficulty our clients have is they are spoilt for the choice of destination!

Why January is One of the Best Times To Go Skiing!

Wondering how to drag out the festive spirit just that little bit longer? Starting to work your way through your list of New Year resolutions is enough to give anyone the January blues so why not head to slopes of the European Alps and get the year off to a fantastic start!

With the most popular (and busy) times to ski being Christmas and February half-term, why would you want to go skiing in January? Here are some reasons why you should definitely consider it!

Quieter Slopes!

After the busy Christmas period, the slopes tend to quieten down at the start of the year. This can only be a good thing as there’s plenty more space and shorter lift queues!

Fantastic Snowy Conditions

With lower temperatures on the pistes, this means that the snow quality is at its absolute best during the month of January. Carve slick lines through the snow and zoom down to your hearts content!

Great Value for your Money

After the peak times of Christmas and New Year, January has some fantastic special offers making a great time to hop on the slopes.

It’s the Best Work Out!

Forget boring sessions at the gym after the Christmas indulgence…use the mountain instead! Your muscles will have the best work out and who can resist working up a sweat in some of the most beautiful locations in the world!

Contact our team of multi award-winning luxury ski property specialists today. We are passionate about providing a 5* bespoke and tailor-made service where no request is too big or too small. Your personal and dedicated consultant will be delighted to find you your perfect luxury ski chalet and ensure your Alpine retreat is magical in every way.

Our Top Reasons to Visit Megeve

The beautiful picture postcard location of Megeve, situated in the south-east of France near the Italian & Swiss borders and became popular in the 1920’s as a luxury ski resort. Retaining the old fashioned and traditional charm whilst offering its high end and glamourous position, this stunning village is completely worthy of its hidden gem status. If luxury, sophistication and fantastic food are your idea of paradise then Megeve may be the ultimate ski destination for you!

We’ve compiled a list of reasons why we think Megeve is a wonderful ski resort for all to visit.

It’s the 3rd Largest Ski Area in France

Sitting at the heart of the Evasion Mont-Blanc ski area, Megeve stretches over 445km and contains 220 slopes, 107 ski lifts and 5 incredible snow parks as well as 5 nursery parks for beginner skiers.

The area is a great place for all skiing abilities whether you’re brand new to the slopes or an advanced snow sport pro!

The Magical Village Centre

Unlike other larger ski resorts in the European Alps, Megeve has historically shunned the party scene and keeps to the quiet and peaceful side of life. There is lots of space on the glorious pistes around you and you’ll never need to worry about the town being packed to the prim.

The charming atmosphere of the village’s centre is something to behold. It’s car-free and has plenty to see and do. Every year, local artists are commissioned to decorate a gigantic Christmas tree in the centre. Locals also take tourists for scenic rides on horse-drawn carriage.

Its Natural Beauty

Rather than having completely mapped out slopes, Megeve boasts ski slopes with far more intimidating and challenging experiences. You’ll be going past stunning rock formations as well as fairytale-like woodlands with trees bending under the weight of freshly fallen snow.

High Altitude Dining

Megeve features some truly amazing high altitude Michelin-star restaurants that not only offer some of the most delicious cuisine but also adds in the experience of 360 degree views of the mountains surrounding you. Some of the highly esteemed restaurants include Le 1920, Flocon de Sel and L’Alpette.

It Offers Incredible 5* Luxury

Balancing the Alpine charm with contemporary design, Megeve features a range of major French designer shopping including Hermes and Faconnable as well as other retail opportunities to suit every taste.

There’s Plenty of Activities for Non-Skiers

There are a wide range of off-hill options for any non-skiers in your party and retain the fun and excitement of the Alps. Ice skating, tennis, climbing and swimming as well as the previously mentioned shopping opportunities can all be on your agenda if skiing isn’t your plan for the day. The casino and the famous Cinq Rues Jazz Bar are popular late night attractions for the area.

Some Fantastic Events Exclusive to the Area

Megeve have a long standing history with the equestrian industry and hold annual events including the Polo Masters Cup which sees the horses and riders play on the snow and ice as well as the International Jumping Competition. Winter Golf is also a major event in Megeve and is home to the annual Snow Golf Cup. National and international championships for figure skating and ice hockey at the Palais des Sports Stadium.

The Magnificent Chalets

As a picture postcard village it only makes sense for the luxury ski properties in Megeve to be just as picturesque. You can enjoy all the creature comforts of a luxurious chalet with modern necessities whilst being mere steps away from the slopes!

Our experienced and dedicated luxury ski chalet experts are passionate about finding you your perfect property in the European Alps.

Top Alternative Activities for Non-Skiers in the European Alps

So, you’ve booked your dream stay in the European Alps and can’t wait to hit the slopes and zoom down on your skis to your heart’s content. However…there are some members of your party who don’t ski. It can be a stressful thought to think of a series of activities and things to do to keep non-skiers occupied and enjoying themselves.

Don’t worry! There is so much to do to keep even the most discerning traveler entertained, especially with our multi award-winning ski consultants knowledge and our bespoke concierge service!

Read on to find out just a small selection of some fantastic opportunities for skiers and non-skiers alike!

Dog Sledging

Explore the mountains and plough through fresh powdery snow with a team of incredible (and super cute!) Alaskan huskies. Whether you prefer to wrap up warm in a cosy blanket snuggled up to a loved one on a sled or take control and stand up to drive and mush your powerful pups through the Alpine countryside; dog sledging is a fantastic experience for all ages and there’s no experience necessary!

Horse Drawn Carriage

Feel like you’re living in a fairytale wonderland as you snuggle down under a cosy rug and ride through the beautiful snowy countryside of St Moritz on a romantic horse-drawn carriage. This is the perfect way to spend quality time with your significant other, taking in the awe-inspiring views of the mountains and the alpine scenery. Stay cuddled up and warm whilst listening to the gentle tap of the majestic horses’ hooves in the snow.

Snow Mobiling

Looking for something a little more fast paced? Discover a different side to the mountains by exploring the terrain via snow mobile. Take advantage of the emptying evening slopes and open space in Morzine by taking a tour at dusk to adventure into the valley. This is a great activity to do with friends, family or even by yourself!

Snow Shoeing

Not the most stylish of ski wear on the slopes but this is a fun and active way to explore the mountains! Simply strap on two tennis racket-like shoes and walk, run or jump around the snow for as long as you want! You can book an off-piste nature tour or just follow the signs and make snowy trails as you adventure around the white, powdery countryside.

Helicopter Ride

One of the most incredible activities to experience and enjoy whether you are a skier or not! Take in the sensational birds’ eye view of the snow-capped mountains, glaciers and alpine forests as you fly elegantly across the Alps. For those a little more adventurous or wanting to celebrate a special occasion, why not stop off on top of a mountain for a bespoke luxury lunch on a table carved from the fresh snow? We highly recommend a helicopter ride in Verbier, Switzerland.

Spa Day

And now…relax! Take a break from outdoor activities and spend a well-earned lazy day in the spa.

Elegant Address – Finding Our Clients The Address


Christmas in the European Alps

Where better to spend Christmas than in a snowy ski resort in Europe? Imagine spending your Christmas holidays enjoying the fantastic festive atmosphere whether you’re looking for family friendly fun, sophisticated glamour or an exciting party; the European Alps has something for everyone.

Lech – Austrian Alps

As one of the most exclusive resorts in the European Alps, Lech remains true to its farming town origins despite its international reputation, with incredibly famous visitors including Princess Diana and the Dutch royal family. The modest altitude of 1,450 metres above sea level allow the resort to receive almost twice as much snow as some the French resorts that are more well-known. The construction of the Auenfeldjet gondola in 2013 means that visitors can now use over 180km of ski slopes that include neighbouring resorts such as Zurs and Warth-Schroken. There are a range of ungroomed terrain with some great challenging trails for skiers to try. For apres-ski, you can party into the early hours in some sensational bars.

Courchevel – French Alps

As part of one of the world’s largest ski areas, the Trois Vallees (3 Valleys), Courchevel is a fantastic way to clock up your ski miles. With over 600m worth of snowy pistes and 170 lifts, you’ll find a slope to suit your ability. Most of Courchevel’s slopes are north-facing meaning they usually get the best snow coverage. Each village is linked by a frequent bus service as well as the lifts and pistes where you can enjoy the picturesque woodland surroundings. Courchevel 1850 is the highest of the villages and by far the biggest resort. Here you will find the main lift hub. For non-skiers or for when you want a break from the slopes, Courchevel has an Aquamotion centre based in Moriond with an indoor and outdoor swimming pool, saunas, steam rooms, a hot tub, surfing and a climbing wall for all kinds of entertainment and relaxation. Courchevel 1850 have a beautiful ice rink as well as a fitness centre to enjoy.

Zermatt – Swiss Alps

Switzerland’s most famous ski resort enjoys breath-taking views of the Matterhorn, arguably the world’s most photogenic mountain. The festive season brings some truly magical sights including horse-drawn sleighs and pretty Christmas markets. Snow-sure slopes are ready from late-November with long, scenic runs as well as challenging slopes and easier accessible pistes for beginners. Outstanding mountain restaurants and high-altitude stations present immaculate views and delicious cuisine in the most spectacular of settings. There are 3 lift stations that can access all parts of the resort as it’s car-free. You can heli-ski in Zermatt as well as experience the Gravity Park which is among the best in Europe.

Chamonix – French Alps

Perfect for skiers and non-skiers alike, Chamonix benefits from luxurious shopping opportunities, delicious fine cuisine and indulgent pampering sessions. You can see the resort from an entirely different perspective with helicopter rides or zoom across the snow with highly-trained husky sledge rides. Nestled next to Mont Blanc, Chamonix boasts awe-inspiring views of the mountains and some of the most thrilling skiing around. Off-piste skiing and kindergartens for children provide a range of different activities for all abilities.

St Moritz – Swiss Alps

With glorious sunshine for nearly 320 days of the year, St Moritz is one of the most beautiful ski resorts in the European Alps. Due to the high altitude, you’ll find snow coverage pre-season as well as after. You’ll find the best powder snow on the slopes on the Engadine ski slopes surrounding the St Moritz resort. St Moritz is the most alive in the famous shopping street of Via Serlas filled horse-drawn carriages and stunning Christmas markets.

Megeve – French Alps

With glittering boutiques, incredible restaurants and stunning hotels, Megeve is known as the French Alps version of St Moritz. Ancient cobbled streets and the annual Swarovski Christmas tree make Megeve an absolute winter wonderland during the festive period. The resort is home to several Michelin-star restaurants (one having won 3 of the prestigious awards!) and some of the Alps’ finest spas, you are guaranteed to be relaxed, wined and dined to perfection. Megeve’s slopes are extensive with 3 main ski areas all reached by cable cars with gentle slopes and tree-lined runs.
