Montgenevre – Ski Holidays In The Milky Way
Montgenevre is one of the biggest family skiing escapes, with numbers increasing by the hundreds each and every year. With the influx of skiers and snowboarders, the ski area has been extended with 10 km more ski runs and two new cable cars and chairs (telemixs lifts). The area can handle the popularity with 35 lifts total, over 20 drag, 12 chair and 2 gondolas. Montgenevre skiing is so special because it lies right on the Italian border in the Cottian Alps, giving that ambiance of old-world charm but able to handle the logistics of all the modern skiers who come here for ski vacations. Montgenevre is interlinked with the ginormous (Via Lattea) Milky Way ski area (2006 Winter Olympics), offering some 400+ km of ski runs; this includes Pragelato, Claviere, San Sicario, Sestriere and Serre Chevalier. The highest reachable skiing point here is just at 2700 meters, with the lowest at the village at 1860 meters. The area has an amazing almanac-ed forecast of over 300+ days on average of sunshine per year—no other place can prove to outdo Montgenevre. The Montgenevre area celebrated its hundredth anniversary in 2007. Moreover, there are nearly 60 pistes with 25 km of cross-country trails. Skiing in Montgenevre is a long season, usually commencing in early November and finishing in late April. The closest airport, however, lies in Italy, just 100 km away.
Montgenevre has the usual accommodation found in larger, French-afied ski resorts. This is to say that visitors can book a week or more in luxury suites or chill for longer in shared apartments. Accommodation near the slopes is not always a guarantee, but access is easy enough. The chalets in the area tend to be pricey, especially during the high season. Prices around Christmas and New Year’s can jump by more than 25%. Special deals, however, can be found if one books in advance.
