Located on the slopes of Mont-Blanc, Saint Gervais Mont-Blanc allows you to get to know the highest peaks in Europe. The resort offers 24 green runs, 36 blue runs, 43 red runs, and 17 black runs. You can have fun and do cultural tourism at the same time.
THE FRENCH ALPINE CLUB LA ROCHE-BONNEVILLE
The president Dominique JAMET announces that the CAF is still closed until further notice for a new season. However, Waheb Taxi, a professional cab service, offers to take you there to facilitate your future travel. So make an appointment and book your cab! The club provides several formulas adapted to the whole family: half-day skiing on Saturday afternoons, all-day skiing on Sundays, and sit-skiing.
You can enjoy the panoramic view of Lake Geneva while skiing in Thollon. The resort proposes a “Montagne d’Evian” offer where you will have the opportunity to discover the ski areas of Thollon, Bernex, and Abondance. The ski area will be accessible again at the date defined by the government. Still, the Thollon team is renovating the alpine slopes during its closure, especially under the Parchet chairlift. The blue slope of the Chardons Bleus is also concerned by this renovation so that you can ski directly from the opening in complete safety.
