Spend your days mastering the slopes and your nights experiencing French culture in this traditional village that was France’s first ski resort. With possibly the best non-glacier ski conditions in the French Alps, Mongenévre is excellent for families as everything is within walking distance and there’s plenty to do if you’re not too tired from exploring the incredible mountain.

Montgenévre isn’t what we class as a party town so if you don’t like the noise and atmosphere of a busy nightlife then this is the resort for you. That being said, there’s a great range of restaurants and bars for those looking to relax after a busy day tackling the ski terrain plus some entertaining evening activities to keep the kids busy.

Key Features:

  • France’s oldest resort with traditional and authentic culture
  • Everything you could need is within walking distance on resort
  • 110km of piste on resort connecting to the Milky Way and 400km of skiing
  • Plenty of variety for all skiers including tree-lined blue runs, fast reds and challenging blacks

Accommodation Choices:

On the Slopes:


Ski holidays in Montgenèvre give beginners a great choice. They can ski all the way home on an easy blue path to gain that invaluable sense of achievement. The ski school is friendly and the instructors speak good English.


A great choice of sweeping blue runs, reds with gentle moguls, some pretty tree runs and the fantastic Colletto Verde into Italy.


Much of the Montgenèvre terrain is unofficially pisted by skiers enjoying the gullies and trees between the piste, almost doubling the official mileage. We also recommend the cheap day extension to the Milky Way or Serre Chevalier to add a bit more variety for the keen expert skiers.


The terrain at Montgenèvre is great for snowboarders as there is a half-pipe and it is possible to access the whole area without using a single drag lift.
