Montgenevre

Thinking of skiing in Montgenevre? This historic ski resort, sits on the Italian border, offering snowsure conditions, plenty of intermediate cruising and new facilities including nurseries & cinema.

Why Montgenevre Ski Resort?

  • It has a good snow record
  • There’s plenty of intermediate cruising
  • Nominated for a World Snow Award 2017 - Family Resort of the Year
  • Montgenevre links with many Italian ski resorts (Milky Way ski area)

"Lift queues were small to non-existent, which, given that we travelled in half term, was fantastic! We wanted a quiet, family-friendly resort where everything is in easy walking distance and that is what Montgenèvre provides" - read Lynsey's full review on Snowcarbon or welove2ski.com's ultimate guide to Montgenevre.

Montgenevre (Milky Way) Information

The resort recently celebrated a century of winter sports and marked this centenary by returning some of the feel of the resort to the “pre-automobile”era: it diverted the cross-border road around the resort and revitalised the slope access from the village.

The main road traffic is now directed through a tunnel, restoring Montgenevre’s charm and making it a much more family-friendly resort.

Part of one of the world’s largest ski areas, the “Milky Way” (Via Lattea) Montgenevre is the only French resort on the circuit. The remainder extend across the border into Italy, with over 400km (250 miles) of pistes, and include the 2006 Winter Olympic resorts of Sauze d’Oulx and Sestriere. As well as being one of the world’s oldest ski resorts, Montgenevre is also one of the highest at 1850m, and the slopes themselves reach nearly 2700m. Thanks to its geographical location and high altitude, Montgenevre and the area benefit from maximum snow coverage and the very welcome Mediterranean climate, claiming 300 sunny days a year!

The free travelator (conveyor belt) opposite the Tourist Office accesses toboggan areas for two-to- six year olds, and there’s a second hill for older adventurers. Other facilities in Montgenevre include an ice rink, supermarket, boulangerie, newsagents, butcher, post office, and a doctors’ surgery -  there are 17 restaurants/bars too, and a nightclub.

Activities available in Montgenevre include sleigh rides and snowmobiling - and there’s a variety of snowshoeing and cross-country routes. A map with all the cross-country tracks and walking trails is available at the Montgenevre Tourist Office and at ski pass sales points.

The resort is actually part of the Provence Cote d’Azur region but the average number of days of sunshine is greater than most resorts in the Alps. That said, the resort’s snow conditions have a track record of being excellent too.

Peak Retreats offers a range of Montgenevre accommodation options. All of Montgenevre's ski apartments have been hand-picked and are of a very high standard (4*), providing the ideal base for a Montgenevre ski holiday.
