What’s new in the 2018-2019 Season

A new season starts for us all on Saturday 22 December 2018 until Friday 6 April 2019. So what’s new? The creation of a slalom stadium, a new dog sledding operator, new accommodation – the Belle Bubble Lodge, new library premises and changes in our shops. On the entertainment side, it’s our 80th anniversary and that will serve as the common thread for the whole season!





Creation of a new ski piste – a slalom stadium – parallel to the Chars run, reserved for competition skiing.


It will be named the “Thomas Fanara” piste in honour of our ski champion. The stadium will be inaugurated this winter by Thomas himself and the children of the Ski Club who will set a giant slalom run for the occasion.


Primarily designed for training and competitions, the stadium will also be open to the public outside Ski Club and ESF sessions.










A new company will be offering dog sledding in Praz sur Arly, around the cross-country track (from the foot of the slopes to Cassioz). Take a ride or, better still, try driving a team of dogs yourself! The operator is Evolution 2 with the musher Natacha. Reservations here.












THE BELLE BUBBLE LODGE ON THE PISTES:  apartments and 4 B&B rooms at the foot of the slopes! Situated at the start of the old Combe Noire ski-tow, which was transformed into a hotel in the 70s (The Darbelo), the building has been completely renovated. Karin and René are the new owners of the Belle Bubble Lodge.

Internet site:













A NEW LIBRARY: the new premises of the Praz sur Arly library were inaugurated this autumn: more space, new services, more reading material (magazines, etc.), longer opening hours to include Wednesday afternoon, and a home delivery service for those who are unable to come to the library. The new address: 65, route du Val d’Arly (opposite the Tourist Ofice).













The CRÊT DU MIDI GARAGE has moved. The Legoux family and their team are now at the Flumet entrance to Praz: 1381 route du Val d’Arly, for the sale of new and second-hand cars, as well as rentals, mechanics and bodywork.

New this winter: take advantage of their offer to deliver and mount chains on your car at your residence! More information: 04 50 21 90 30.














INTERMARCHE has undergone a major transformation this autumn. After the opening of the “Comptoirs de la Bio” store this summer, the Intermarché itself has been completely renovated by Stéphanie and Emmanuel Boulay’s team. You will find products grouped in specific areas, with particular importance given to local and regional products.















THE END OF AN ERA AT EMONET SPORTS: Patricia Emonet and René Blanc have handed over to Jean-Charles Vernet who is the new manager of the SKISET shop at the Megève entrance to the village. Patricia and René were particularly appreciated for the warmth of their welcome and their professionalism.

















MY DREAM HOME: Flore and Ryan GREEN are the new managers of the My Dream Home estate agency. This Franco-British agency specializes in the sale of chalets and apartments in the French Alps.















THE BELLES: The Belles is also open in the winter! Jude and Emmanuel GUILLET will open the Belles snack bar during the holidays with a new sheltered terrace.
















This winter is the 80th anniversary of our resort and this will be the common thread of our activities throughout the winter.
