Situated between 1,800 m and 2,600 m altitude, the international resort of Montgenèvre offers two linked areas: the Grand Montgenèvre and the Monts de la Lune (Mountains of the Moon). 

The Grand Montgenèvre ski area consists of 95 km of slopes with 78 runs (9 green, 17 blue, 39 red and 13 black) with 24 lifts. Including Grand Montgenèvre, the Monts de la Lune ski area has 110 km of slopes with 91 runs (9 green, 22 blue, 44 red and 16 black) and 31 lifts.

Confirmed and beginner skiers and snowboarders alike will enjoy fun paths: 1 snow park, 1 fun trail, 1 boarder cross, 1 free-ride area and 1 multi-activity area.


The Monts de la Lune estate also offers a link with the Italian part of the Via Lattea (Milky Way). Fifth largest ski area in the world and former Olympic site, the Via Lattea offers in total more than 400 kilometres of skiing slopes. 

The Via Lattea is a winter sports area in the Italian and French Alps, straddling the French-Italian border at Claviere/Montgenèvre. Located only some 70 km west of Turin, the Via Lattea comprises the five Piedmontese resorts of Claviere (1,760 m), Sansicario (1700 m), Sauze d'Oulx (1,509 m), Pragelato (1,524 m) and Sestriere (2,035 m) and the French resort of Montgenèvre (1,860 m). Altogether there are more than 400 km of skiing slopes.


Montgenèvre has unique snow cover and sunshine thanks to the Retour d’Est (Return from the East) and a south-facing orientation. The Retour d’Est is a unique meteorological effect causing heavy snowfalls allowing skiing from the end of November to the end of April.  Its south-facing orientation allows exposure that permits ideal conditions for skiing in full sunshine over a large part of the skiing area.


The oldest ski resort in France, Montgenèvre held the first ever international skiing competition in 1907. It is now recognised for its sporting level, for the quality of the snow, for its orientation and for the length of the skiing season (end of November to end of April).
