We only had one day to ski at St. Gervais, but we were psyched to tackle this large ski resort in the Alps. It was pouring rain in the Village, but as we climbed the mountain in the Bettex Télécabine the snow started dumping and...More

We enjoy coming here because of the ESF ski school and easy lockers at the top and few cafes which are good. It can get very busy during holidays and the queue up can take a good 20 minutes to the gondolas.

A good variety of pistes and not too busy on the slopes at all - even though we went during a holiday in France so apparently there were more people than usual. The views are scenic and there are lots of trees lining the slopes...More

We stayed near the Bettex lift in Saint Gervais. For two days the lift taking you up was out of action meaning big queues for buses. Even when working there are big queues at life and it is badly organised. Be aware that they close...More
