Sun-drenched traditional Franco-Italian resort in the huge Milky Way ski region
- Part of the 400km Milky Way area.
- Two-country skiing.
- Quiet and un-crowded slopes.
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.
