Located two kilometres from the Italian border, Montgenevre is the one French link into the massive Milky Way network, with its hundreds of kilometres of pistes. At 1860m, this compact resort has a good snow record, ski-to your-door accommodation and a cheerful friendly atmosphere. The village is very old having developed from a farming community that was also the only link between France and Italy; indeed it still is but for a very different kind of traffic.

The skiing has something for everyone. There is a dedicated beginner’s area separated from the main piste with a magic carpet and button tow and a variety of gentle slopes to get your first ski legs.

Then there is a wide selection of blue runs on well groomed pistes that will inspire confidence. For intermediates and advanced skiers there are a large number of reds together with some steeper slopes that will challenge most abilities. The area of Le Chalvet has now been linked to the rest of the resort and provides yet more challenging terrain.

In our opinion this is a fantastic resort for groups and well worth consideration.
