"Montgenèvre is one of the best ski resorts I have been to. What could be better than empty slopes and the chance to pop over to Italy for an authentic pizza for lunch! The views at Montgenèvre are just fantastic and with frequently great snow conditions, what more can you ask for?"

Montgenèvre Ski Holidays

Montgenèvre is located high on a historic pass on the French-Italian border (the same one Hannibal marched his elephants over) and is part of both the local Monts de la Lune and the massive Milky Way ski area which stretches for 400km in to Italy, making it one of the world’s biggest ski areas.

Montgenèvre is excellent value for money on and off the slopes and provides a super option for families and couples alike who want to try a French/Italian blend. The village centre has a very pleasant, modern ‘snow front’ where new resort facilities meet state-of-the-art lifts and you'll also find fantastic learning facilities.

The resort’s proximity to Turin Airport, its snowsure altitude, family-friendly facilities, modern accommodation options and great range of mountain restaurants make Montgenèvre an all round fantastic resort.

Skiing in Montgenèvre

Based on two sides of the valley, the skiing in Montgenèvre is hugely varied with open bowls and long groomed pistes, and the novelty of skiing in and out of Italy makes it all the more interesting. The long runs from the top of the Rocher De L’Aigle chair all the way down to the picturesque village of Claviere - across the border in Italy - are definitely a must and you can reward yourself with a great Italian lunch.

Investment in infrastructure means it’s quite feasible for intermediate skiers and above to go further in to Italy and up to the resorts like Sauze d’Oulx and Sestrière which offer more world class terrain.

But there’s plenty for all ability levels. A 50 hectare site right next to the village has been created especially for beginners with easy to use lifts, gentle slopes, expert tuition and cafes to warm up in just a few steps away.

There are hundreds of kilometres of intermediate terrain to explore and for experts there are numerous black pistes to keep you busy.
