Skiing

You can walk up the hill to the Plancerts drag lift, discover Les Houches and ski home (snow allowing). A short drive down to town gives you access to the beautiful, glamorous St Gervais/Megève ski area, where you can mingle with the seasoned Alpine cognoscenti. Make sure you stop for an après-ski drink and a boogie at the legendary Folie Douce mountain bar above St Gervais.

Ski passes

If you want to ski Les Houches and St Gervais, the best and most flexible option is the MBU (Mont Blanc Unlimited) pass, which enables you to ski Les Houches, St Gervais, Chamonix, Courmayeur and even Verbier. The pass also gives you discounts on various attractions in Chamonix. For something more modest, you can buy separate single-resort passes for St Gervais/Megève or Les Houches. There are even micro-passes available for beginners via www.ski-saintgervais.com
