Beginners are very well catered for on the gentle nursery slopes at village level, which are fenced off from the rest of the slopes. There are wide open pistes and a good selection of green runs to help you progress, like those that run from the top of Les Godrans back to the village. The long Phare blue run from Le Chalvet is a good step up from greens.
Intermediates are spoilt for choice in Montgenèvre. Popular descents include the wide pistes down from Les Anges and Le Querelay and the long red run from Le Chalvet at 2,680m. The Chalvet area also has some black runs that are more like reds and, for timid intermediates, there are several red runs that are more like blues.
Montgenèvre itself offers some exciting off-piste descents and bump runs especially in the Col de l'Alpet area. Why not ski down the black run into Cesana Torinese in Italy for lunch? You can buy lift pass extensions locally if you want to explore different sections of the Milky Way.
Rack up your mileage with Ski Away-days to Claviere, Cesana and Serre Chevalier. Just a 30-minute bus ride to Serre Chevalier from Montgenèvre, or a short ski across the border to Claviere and Cesana, you’ll be able to tackle some great off-piste in Serre Chavalier, scale the 450km of runs in the Mont de la Lune ski area and experience the fabulous snow in Italy. With the Mont de la Lune lift pass, you’ll be able to ski as much as you like in Claviere and Cesana, and 1 free day in Serre Chevalier. Speak to your rep for more details.
The pistes in Montgenèvre are mainly for intermediate riders - there isn't much to challenge experts or to ease in the beginners. There are also quite a few drag lifts - again, not ideal for novices - and flat sections, which aren't fun for any boarder. There is a terrain park, but the features are limited. Once you're over the French-Italian border however, there's a lot more terrain for boarders to explore.
