It is also only a short drive from Serre Chevalier. Montgenevre was one of the first French ski resorts, built in 1907, and it is known for its 300 days of sun a year and incredible snow-record due to having plenty of north facing slopes.

The Pistes: There is a huge variety of pistes throughout Montgenevre as well as in neighbouring Claviere and beyond, meaning you will never run out of new pistes to try, favouring all levels. There is a snow-park with 2 border crosses and jumps to try-out and plenty of ski-in ski-out accommodation.

Facilities & Apres-ski: Though not a big variety of nightlife in Montgenevre there are some fantastic bars & restaurants, offering you a variety of French & Italian cuisine with some brilliant evening entertainment including live bands, jazz evenings & fancy dress party’s.
