Montgenèvre comes into its own in the winter months: breathtaking views, vast areas of virgin snow, clean mountain air and bright blue skies.Whatever your age or experience, you will find Montgenèvre a perfect choice for a ski holiday in the French and Italian Alps and it also offers some of the best value.

Just a couple of kilometres from the Italian border, next to Claviere, Montgenèvre is the oldest ski resort in France and the only French part of the famous Milky Way ski circuit. With a combination of expert, intermediate and beginner courses as well as superb nursery slopes for the little ones and off-piste excursions for the adventurers – there’s something for almost everyone in Montgenèvre.

The Montgenèvre ski area is a decent enough size in its own right, being served by 39 lifts (chairs and drags) and has a 150km of downhill pistes. Reach the summit at Le Chavlet and take in the spectacular vistas before an exhilarating ski back down to the village. Montgenevre however, is part of the exciting Milky Way system, increasing the ski area to a mind boggling near 500km of pistes across the Italian border, making this a larger ski area than the French Paridiski system and competing well with the 3 valleys, but not on price as you will certainly spend less money here!

The ski schools and nursery slopes are excellent and there are ski schools everyday for all levels and ages and superb childcare facilities.There’s also a Montgenèvre ESF office to sort out any ski school qeries.But of course there’s more in Montgenèvre than downhill skiing.

The three cross-country skiing courses in the area are perfect for all levels of skiers. The routes wind through scented forests and meander over alpine meadows and are a lovely alternative to a day on the slopes. Or you might want to try snowshoe walking or snow trekking on one of the 5km or 7km routes. The slower pace gives you time to enjoy the beauty of the mountains and the spectacular views.

If you’re a keen snowboarder you might want to try a few moves at Montgenèvre’s snow park which sports a quarterpipe, projump, gap and rope tow. Or for the more advanced and adventurous skiers in your group, you can spend an exhilarating afternoon heli-skiing. Fly by helicopter from Montgenèvre before being dropped at 3000m at the Italian peaks of Dormillouse, Terranera or Clausi. With breathtaking scenery and total silence you’ll feel like you’re at the top of the world.

Back down to earth, the whole family can enjoy the ice skating rink, with its magical mountain backdrop, day or night. Or how about the thrill of a night-time snowmobile or ski-doo ride? Tiny tots aged 2-6 have their own toboggan ride. And don’t forget to let your little ones try out the Jardin des Neiges which has been especially designed for 3-7 year olds. With a mini travelator and ski-lift, and a course with tiny bumps and turns, it will get them prepared for the big slopes. Yes, Montgenevre is a resort for all reasons and a visit is highly recommended.
