Montgenevre ski resort is located at 1.850 m just on the French side of the Italian/French boarder and is linked in to the Italian Milky way circuit, in fact its on the snowiest part of the Milky way ski area.
Montgenevre ski area
The local ski of area Montgenevre is linked to Claviere and consists of around 110km of pistes. When you include the Milky Way area you have over 400km of linked pistes which include the villages of Sestriere, Sansicario and Sauze d’Oulx.
The ski range in Montgenevre is between 1.760 m and 2.630m and is served locally with 30 lifts (82 lifts in the full area of the Milky Way and a ski range of 1.390 m to 2.825 m) The Milky Way circuit is reached via a link just above Claviere which can be reached from Montgenevre either via a blue run via the Le Chalvet side of the mountain or via a series of reds and blues from the main mountain.
The lift pass exchange with Serre-Chevalier and Puy St Vincent is well worth the visit and can be easily reached by car. Montgenevre is a road side narrow village just 2km from the Italian boarder, low priced shops, bars and restaurants line the road that leads down to the village’s nursery slopes. Thankfully the traffic that blighted this area now is diverted through a tunnel, so the village no longer suffers from through traffic on its way to Italy.
