Four Seasons Hotel Megève Creates Helicopter Ski Safaris

By Paul Joseph

The luxurious Four Seasons Hotel Megève, located in an Alpine ski resort village in southeast France, has launched a Helicopter Ski Safari that allow guests to gain a bird’s eye view of the beautiful region.

Guests will not only get to enjoy the gorgeous slopes that frame the resort from up high, but also nearby ones at the Chamonix, Courchevel and Val d’Isère resorts among others.

Staff at the Megève’s Ski Concierge will tailor the trip every day according to the weather and snow conditions.

Rates for the Ski Safari begin at €1,310 per night for two guests staying in a Megève Deluxe Room. If you book a weeklong trip, you’ll get the privilege of going on three helicopter excursions. Five nights gets you two trips, and three-night visitors are treated to one.

Alternatively, guests can convert the value of the helicopter journey into an equally invigorating adventure on the ground. From dog-sled rides to snowshoeing, you can pick from multiple exhilarating treks. You’ll can even enjoy a picnic lunch in a top-scale mountain refuge to refuel before you hit the slopes.

Guests can choose from the Mont Blanc Ski Safari, featuring 15-minute rides to Chamonix, Flaine or Courmayeur resorts; or the slightly longer Alpine Ski Safari flight, which takes visitors on 30-minute trips to Val d’Isère, Courchevel, Méribel or Val Thorens.

The Ski Safaris will be available until April 2018.
