The smartest of the Mont Blanc stations, idyllic Alpine Megève is not only a major ski resort but also a chic winter watering hole that draws royalty, celebrities, and fat wallets from all over the world. Because the slopes are comparatively easy, beginners and skiers of only modest ability will find Megève more to their liking than Chamonix: Megève, conveniently, also has one of France's largest ski schools. In summer the town is a popular spot for golfing and hiking.
