Montgenèvre is situated at the end of the vast Milky Way network of lifts which straddles the border across France and Italy. The snow record here is particularly good in this region, as the villages are set at high altitude, which makes it a snow sure resort even late in the season.

Claviere, in Italy, is nearby where you can to sample some cross-border atmosphere. A wide variety of slopes offer excellent nursery slopes and plenty of cruising for intermediates and a few more challenging slopes for the advanced.
