It appears to be France's best kept secret. Never heard of it until this year when a cheap deal popped up. Great skiing for intermediates with easy access to Italy. Very quiet resort after 6 pm with little après after 6. It looks and feels like an alpine resort with little concrete to be seen.

Skied in Montgenevre over February half term & had a great time. There were loads of long scenic greens, blues and reds. We particularly enjoyed the challenging red runs over to Italy. Even though it was half term (both UK & France) the only lift queue was at the main lift at ski school start time (10mins), otherwise you skied... More

Runs too easy for me but then been spoilt by Espace Killy. The reds here are like blues in Tignes and the blacks more like difficult reds. BUT, its a lovely place and plenty of skiing to be had. You can flip over to Claviere and away days are to Sestriere and Serre Chavallier. Would I go back? Yes as... More

This is a super resort for skiing of all ability. The slopes are varied and mixed and wide and not crowded! There is easy access all over and the views are just beautiful. Lots to do, lots of places to toboggan once the lifts are closed, including the Luge. Many varied restaurants, not many bars and quite quiet at night,... More

After a good experience in Montgenevre last year our family returned for a second stay over the new year 2014-2015.Christmas 2014 was bare for snow in the alps and the snow arrived on the Saturday before new year when we arrived in the resort.We were delighted. My main criticism is not of the resort or the snow but of the... More

Montgenevre is at one end of the Via Lattea (milky way). It is possible to ski from one end to the other on the lift pass we had, but only in one day. The pass covered all of Montgenevre and most of Claviere (the next village along the Via Lattea) but once you'd gone beyond the borders of Claviere the... More

We have just returned from Montgenevre where we stayed in the Hameau des Airelles apartments in the Obelisque end of the village. The village itself was pleasant and had a good range of cafes and restaurants, a couple of gift shops and lots of ski hire/wear shops. A nice older section near the church. The skiing is based on two... More

We have just returned from Montgenevre where the snow has been falling for 3 solid days. The runs are reasonable - though not too challenging - the nightlife is quiet and there is nothing like the Follee Deuce at ValThorens to attract the party goers - for a good intermediate family ski trip this is as good as any resort...

Due to lack of snow at the beginning of the season, the town paid staff off so when they had snow, they didn't have enough people to man lifts and groom the slopes. Approximately 50% of lifts open in resort and not possible to ski back from neighbouring resorts, so didn't get full value from ski pass, but still had... More

We have used this ski school for 3 consecutive years for adult private lessons and children group class lessons. The standard of lessons is excellent for both types; they are well delivered and ensure you do progress confidently and completely to the next level - which for us has been very from absolute beginners year one to black slopes year...
