I have discovered Le Jaillet Skiing Area for the first time this year.
This only occurred, because of unlucky cloud position, that made Mont d'Arbois and Rochebrune disappear in fog, while Jaillet was perfectly 'ensoleillé'.
To begin with, we were faced with quite a challenge to find a place to park our car. Due to the absence of the underground parking there's always a shortage of places, even on the least crowded days.
Right after that followed another challenge: getting to the cable car. We proceeded through what seemed an infinite series of steps, stairs and staircases only to find ourselves in the huge crowd, starting on top of the last staircase, wanting to get into the cabin lift.
The cabin ride is quite a smooth experience, though it's a bit inconvenient to be sitting back-to-back with other people. However, the scenery (panorama of the whole village) makes you forget about any inconveniences in no time.
This was right after the Snow Fall, so we could judge the quality of piste preparation, I'd say, it's really poor. 99% of all the slopes we skied down, during the day were left completely 'poudrese', making skiing on it a torture. Having checked the Guide Officiel, I found out, that only two of the piste are officially supposed to be left in such a state.
The domaine is connected with Combloux and La Giettaz, but still there's barely enough to explore for two days. Although there's a significant number of slopes down there, it would only account for about a fifth of the whole slopes massive available in Megève.
Taking into account all the practical difficulties of getting here and the fact that it's connected with other parts of Domaine Skiable only through the Meg-Bus I don't consider this worthy of anyone's precious time for more, than a day or two.
