Montgenèvre Ski Resort France

Montgenevre ski resort is the 'French connection’ of the Via Lattea (Milky Way) interlinked ski region. A high-altitude base ensures great snow quality all season long.

A large ski resort in its own right, Montgenèvre has the bonus of a simple ski down the valley to cross the frontier to Claviere & the rest of the Via Lattea in Italy.

Where is Montgenèvre, France?

Montgenevre ski resort sits in a high pass on the Italy/France border at 1850m elevation. Access by car is via Briancon in France (N94 road) or Oulx in Italy (SS24 road). Buses operated by Voyageurs regularly make the journey between the train stations at Oulx and Briancon via Montgenevre (4/day each direction). Cost is about €8 one way (17/18 prices). Oulx train station makes a great gateway to the area as fast trains from Turin, Milan and Paris all stop there.

Montgenèvre Accommodation

Montgenevre ski resort is centred on the compact village of the same name. The village centre is old and with the requisite narrow laneways, but thankfully, no through traffic ( the main road skirts the edge of town). Newer accommodation developments are on the village outskirts, but within walking distance of the small number of shops, bars & restaurants in town.

Should no accommodation be available in Montgenèvre, Briancon is a great option in France, as are nearby Claviere or Cesana in Italy.

Nearby Ski Resorts

Aside from the major ski areas of the Via Lattea (Oulx & Sestriere), the nearby ski resort of Serre Chevalier is well worth a visit and is included in multi day Montgenevre lift passes. Further afield in Italy but still relatively close is Bardonecchia and in France, legendary La Grave.


The Powderhounds will review Montgenèvre in season 2019/20. More information is coming soon. Stay tuned for our new photos & insights.
