A nature destination "par excellence", Megève is the ideal resort for cross-country skiing far from the crowds. Fun, contemplative, invigorating or initiatory circuits… the choice is yours!

Fun:
For both children and adults, the Livraz skiing area is a 100% pleasure destination. Moguls and ski jumps make it a paradise for teenagers and lovers of thrills and strong emotions, but also for families, as this site, partially closed in and with gentle slopes is also the ideal playground for children to learn cross-country skiing.

Invigorating:
With its steep ups and downs and technical turns, the Javen circuit attracts those for whom this sport is synonymous with challenge and self-surpassing. A technical terrain with, as a reward for effort, very lovely viewpoints over Lake Javen, the Mont-d’Arbois and the Mont-Blanc!

Contemplative:
The trails of Planay-Planellet hold some lovely surprises in store for nature lovers: a chamois or roe deer as you come through a turn, the flight of a bird of prey skimming the fir trees… A real haven of peace where only the murmuring of a mountain torrent breaks the silence in this preserved and isolated location, far from habitations. An oasis of nature in which to re-charge your batteries and spend some time just for yourself.

Initiatory:
Break away from your daily routine, adventure off the beaten track, explore new horizons…
Biathlon initiation at the Livraz Nordic site (rifle shooting range nearby) for all ages with the ESF (French Ski School).
It offers a very fun first approach to a sport that is enjoying a growing popularity. An excellent opportunity to get out of your routine!
