Readers of Where to Ski and Snowboard can save up to 10 per cent on week-long skiing holidays and short breaks in the French resort of Megève this March — with prices starting at just £295 per person with Stanford Skiing.

“There is no better time to go skiing here than in March,” says Elizabeth Cahir from Stanford Skiing, a family-run company that specialises in Megève.

“January is cold and dark, February is busy but by later on in March, the days are longer and warmer, the school kids have gone back to school so the pistes are empty and there are no lift queues. You can sit on the terrace at the rustic mountain restaurants enjoying your tartiflette in the sun, no need to book or fight off the crowds, flights are normally cheaper too.”

The resort is just an hour’s drive from Geneva, making it perfect for short breaks as well as week-long holidays. Because Megève is small, there are no mass-market operators, and Stanford Skiing has a range of self-catering apartments, a catered chalet and two rustic chalet-hotels on offer. It offers a transfer service to and from Geneva that will pick up guests from any flight they choose and has compiled a number of downloadable maps, restaurant guides, ski itineraries, driving directions and other useful information for visitors to the resort.

This spring, there’s an extra reason to visit Megève — from 30 March to 2 April the resort is hosting the second Megève International Jazz Festival, with Macy Gray headlining on the Friday night.

“Friday is the staff night off in our chalets so this will an ideal night to enjoy what I’m sure will be an amazing concert!” added Elizabeth Cahir.
