We have been skiing with Jay, Simon and their staff since 1998 and have visited once or twice a year ever since.
Megeve is a beautiful place with excellent skiing and the service you get from SB skiing is excellent. The instruction is good, tailored to individual need wherever possible. Even though I have been skiing for many years, I lost my nerve after a fall and then again after breaking my leg.. ( not skiing I jasten to add but that other extreme sport.. shopping!)Jay and her team have been marvellous at restoring my confidence, with Ange and Mark taking me down red runs .. something I never thought I would do again.
They have also improved my daughter's confidence and skiing ability, so much so that she achieved her 9 star last Christmas and won her section of the womens slalom. She was gutted that she had to work this year!
Megeve is a great ski area for the beginner to the most advanced and all the senior instructors have extensive knowledge of the area and can test even the most determined powder hound. They also have video sessions which are excellent at showing you that you have the technique, now you just need the confidence to use it!
The Chalet is good too. We have stayed at the Soleil d'Or and always found a great welcome there. ALL the staff work hard to make our stay as pleasent as possible. I have special dietry needs and the Chef, Marie, always makes sure I have meals that I look forward to. The Chalet is always warm, afternoon tea always welcome and tasty and the atmosphere in the bar area for "apres ski" is great.
We have just returned from spending Christmas there (2011). I can think of no better place to stay.
