So what's it like?
Some of the best snow in the Milky Way region with up to 300 days of sunshine a year
Sat on the French and Italian border, Montgenèvre is linked to the Milky Way ski area with 400km of piste and an excellent snow record. It’s great because you get to ski across two countries, making the most of both ski cultures. Montgenèvre is an ideal resort for beginner and intermediate skiers, with convenient nursery slopes and an abundance of un-crowded cruising terrain, perfect for gaining confidence. More experienced skiers will enjoy the rest of the Milky Way area where you’ll find some brilliant freeride and off-piste terrain to test your skills to the limit.
The village centre has retained its original charm with a selection of local restaurants, French-style buildings and traditional bars. The evenings in Montgenèvre offer a chilled-out and calm atmosphere, ideally suited to those looking for a relaxing ski break.
If you’re looking for a bit more excitement, then why not have a go at the longest sledge run in France, the Luge Monty Express? Other fun activities include riding snow bikes on the slopes, once the lifts have closed for the day, and going for a spin on the outdoor ice skating rink.
Ski Information Beginners
Beginners are very well catered for on the gentle nursery slopes at village level. There are wide open pistes and a good selection of green runs to help you get started.
Ski Information Intermediates
Intermediate skiers are spoilt for choice in the Montgenèvre ski area. Popular descents include the wide pistes down from Les Anges and Le Querelay and the long red run from Le Chalvet at 2,680m.
Ski Information Advanced
Extensions to the lift pass covering different sections of the Milky Way (with over 400km of piste) can be purchased locally. Why not ski over to Italy down the black run into Cesana Torinese for lunch? Montgenèvre itself offers some exciting off-piste descents and bump runs especially in the Col de l'Alpet area.
