Ski Holidays in St GervaisSt Gervais Les Bains, to give it it's full name, is, as the name suggests, a spa town and the 'Thermes'- the thermal baths are still in operation today.
The village itself is located at approximately 850m above sea level, where the lifts then ascent to a ski area between 1800m - 2100m above sea level.
The ski area is large - the local 'St Gervais' area (which includes super posh Megeve and the traditional village of St Nicolas de Veroce) covers approximately 240km of piste, and the more extensive 'Mont Blanc Evasion' ski are (including Les Contamines, Megeve, Combloux and La Giettaz) 445km of piste, so if you are an intermediate skier who loves to tally up the ski miles, or a group of mixed ability skiers, this place is for you.
For winter 2013-14 the lift company of St Gervais have joined forces with the snowpark designesrs H05 (who designed snowparks in Chamonix, Les Houches, Flaine and Meribel). The Snowpark will be accessible to all ages with a family boarder cross, a big air bag and rails.
St Gervais is a traditional and lively French town where the local people live and work all year round. It has all the usual facilities that you would expect, including many good shops, restaurants and bars to 'apres-ski' in. Whilst you could easily fill a week long holiday simply by skiing and relaxing locally, St Gervais is also very well located and if you have your own transport you can ski in many other local resorts, like Chamonix, La Clusaz, or of course Les Contamines.
Access to the slopes in St Gervais is via the 'Bettex' cable car (updated for winter 13-14), located in the middle of the town. The 'Grand Panorama' apartments couldn't be any closer to this lift, the apartment entrance is literally 100m from the bottom of the lift station and as the name suggests offers amazing views from every angle.
The resort of St Gervais is easily reached from Cluses station or change trains there and get even closer.
Trains run regularly from Paris and can be combined with the Eurostar from London - packages can be purchased with all our St Gervais accommodation.
The Mont Blanc tramway (one of the last cog railways left in the alps) connects the station at Le Fayet to the one in St gervais and continues up to the plateau at Bellevue at 1790m.
