The people here were really friendly and welcoming and for that reason I'd love to give Montgenevre a higher rating. However the infrastructure is weak and there is a laissez faire attitude that seems to accept mediocrity and have no ambitions to improve. The resort had suffered unusually poor snowfall with none for nearly a month and high temperatures making... More

Brilliant resort with nice skiing, Good value skipass (6.5 days- 155 euro ) Really good service from Astier Sports ski Rental Only problem was that some of the main runs especially into the resort were closed off.

Went here twice has got a good cheap deal both times with Rocket Ski. The area is ok for a beginner, other wise the area is extremely limited for ski coverage even with Claviere attached. You have to make use of the full lift pass and ski to Sansicario, Sestriere and Sauze D'oux, which can take between 1.5 to 2... More

With good snow conditions, this resort has ample slopes and a great network of lifts to ski either in Frrance or over to Italy.

5th time to the resort of Montgenevre, so have been when the snow's a-plenty. First week Jan 2015, they had had some but not plenty of snow. Have to say the authorities have worked really hard to get as many linked runs open as possible and we did not find we were lacking to find any great skiing. We were... More

The resort is lovely small and relatively quiet. Great if you are not that into apres ski. The weather was not great, with little snow and over 50% of the pistes closed. Apparently this rarely happens at this time of the year and hasn't since the 90's! so we were just unlucky. If there was more snow I would have... More

The redeeming feature of Montgenevre has got to be the big mountain scenery and range of skiing available - if there is enough snow. The town centre itself is a two and a half street affair which you can walk end to end in 10 minutes. Very little in the way of shops to browse in. No decent supermarket. But... More

Perfect for beginners and intermediates. Lots of cafes and restaurants. Highly recommend. With right snow conditions there would be plenty of skiing - lack of snow can mean runs to Italy are closed. Only one mountain cafe which gets very busy. Many more on Italy side.

It's not the resorts fault when the snow doesn't come but it really does have very little alternative to skiing if there is little to no snow. Trips to other slopes can become expensive. No half day passed availble when buying on a day by day basis because of the conditions.
