The baths of Saint-Gervais were able to use natural resources to create a leading health and fitness centre, in the heart of a beautiful 10 hectare wooded park. This haven of peace with specialised facilities and equipment is an ideal place to relax. The thermal water of Saint-Gervais springs naturally at 39°C after journeying for over 60 years in the heart of Mont-Blanc. This pure and precious water is a natural serum with recognised medical virtues: it heals, relieves, comforts and beautifies sensitive, irritated or intolerant skin with its neutral PH and its high concentration of mineral salts and trace elements.

 

Hydrotherapy mecca for over two centuries, the Saint-Gervais-les-Bains thermal baths are the European benchmark treatment of atopy and scar massage. Each year
more than 2,000 spa guests, babies, children and adults are welcomed to care and heal from skin (eczema, psoriasis, acne...) or respiratory (sinusitis, rhinopharyngitis, asthma...) conditions.

 

Mont Blanc Baths
The Mont Blanc Baths are open by appointment every day except Sunday morning.

Opening:
In season: from Monday to Tuesday from 9.30 am to 7.30 pm
From Wednesday to Saturday from 9.30 am to 9.00 pm (night from 6 pm)
Sunday from 1.30 pm to 7.30 pm


Enjoy an unprecedented sensory experience: Based on the properties of the thermal waters of Saint-Gervais, this course from
2.30 pm, dedicated to fitness, health and well-being, offers a unique opportunity to return to nature. Designed by therapists, it totals fourteen treatments,
divided into three key stages: preparation, regeneration and healing.

Evening until 9 pm! A sensory adventure different from that experienced during the day, thanks to the play of lights at night.

ST GERVAIS SKI AREA

Spoilt for choice, a week is barely enough time to ski the entire Evasion Mont-Blanc area (3rd largest domain in France) and its large number of tree-lined slopes.

 

Skiing on the Mont Blanc side of Saint-Gervais is served by a rack-and-pinion 1904 railway that takes you to the slopes of Les Houches (where there is another 55km of slopes).

 

ST GERVAIS BEGINNERS

For beginners, take the main gondola from the resort centre (next to Le Grand Panorama residence) up to an area called Le Bettex. Le Bettex is a great area for beginners with nursery slopes to learn on. There are also many tree-lined scenic slopes to progress on (greens and blues) above the Megeve area. The slopes lead directly from St Gervais to Megeve.

 

ST GERVAIS INTERMEDIATES

This area is particularly recommended for good intermediates with long reds and blues through scenic locations. Directly above the town on Mont d’Arbois and Mont Joly are some great intermediates slopes.

 

ST GERVAIS EXPERTS & OFF-PISTE

The Mont Joly and Mont Joux sections offer the steepest slopes where some good off-piste can also be found. Experts wont be bored with the choice of over 445km of piste in the Evasion domain.

 

ST GERVAIS SNOWBOARDERS

Snowboarders will enjoy one of the best snow parks of the region.

 

ST GERVAIS RESORT RUNS

The only resort run to St Gervais is the red ‘St Gervais’ run. Other than that you need to take the gondola back down at end of the day.

Historical Snow

 

St Gervais Snow Report – 2004-2014 (10 season average)

 

Here is the snow record data for St Gervais. The first row shows the week for which the measurement applies eg. February 3 is the 3rd week in February. Top slopes shows the average snow cover in cm at the top of the ski area. Bottom Slopes shows the average snow cover in cm at the bottom of the ski area (this is generally where the nursery pistes are located). About 10 cm is generally enough to ski but it very much depends on what’s below ie. grass or more rocky surface.
