Sometimes referred to as 'the birthplace of French skiing,' the town of Megève has a rich history that begins in the 1920s when the area was conceived and constructed by the powerful Rothschild family as an alternative to St. Moritz, making Megève the first purpose-built ski resort in the Alps.
Located in the Haute-Savoie region of the French Alps under the shadow of Mont Blanc (the highest mountain in the European Union) Megève is a truly remarkable resort, boasting some 445km of piste serviced by nearly 120 lifts, all situated above a bustling, vibrant village with a world-class set of amenities.
With a rich history of hosting moguls, dual moguls, and ski cross competition stretching back nearly a decade, Megeve stands proud as one of the premier destinations on the FIS Freestyle Skiing World Cup calendar.
The 2017/18 moguls World Cup finale in Megeve (FRA) was one to remember, with Jaelin Kauf (USA) and Mikael Kingsbury (CAN) taking the wins in dual moguls competition, and Kingsbury and Perrine Laffont taking the moguls World Cup titles.
