 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
Hitting the slopes for the first time in 10 years and was wondering what to expect cost-wise for food and drink on and off the mountain? Never skied in France before but have been to Italy, Austria, Switzerland and Canada...Thanks in advance!!

Welcome to snowHeads snowHead

up the mountain, it is cheaper on StG side than Megeve side, don't underestimate a sandwich & chocolate picnic only buying a drink up there. if the weather is nice there are some great spots to stop & just soak in the view.
in town work on 6-10 euro starter, 15-25 euro main & 6 euro desert, beer is 3 per half.

 Well, the person's real but it's just a made up name, see?

Stanford Skiing (based in Megeve, which is linked by lift to St Gervais) have reviewed a lot of the mountain restaurants in an excellent and very detailed guide, which includes prices for specific meals (for comparison between restaurants) and assignment of a letter depending on how expensive they are.

@surferrosa, I am fortunate to be able to ski in and around Chamonix for the season. The costs of eating out regularly are prohibitive. I do however splash out (in my dirt poor Northern kind of way) occasionally. This Never occurs in Megeve. Chuffing dear. St Gervais much more reasonable. Quite like the place under the Epaule lift.

Bear in mind that each of the ski areas has one or more Salle hors sac, a warm place where you can eat your packed lunch and often buy a hot drink (if for some unfathomable reason you have neglected to take your litre of tea with you).

Wow, thanks for all of your suggestions! I never considered taking a packed lunch to the slopes!! And the list of mountain restaurants is fab, there seem to be so many!

On the countdown already... 11 weeks and 2 days to go. Now bring on the snow!!
