MontgenevreMontgen�vre: the gateway to cross-border skiingSituated on the Italian border, Montgen�vre enjoys Mediterranean sunshine, exceptional snow coverage and access to the 400km Milky Way ski area. This charming village is the most accessible resort in the Alps, situated 15km from the TGV station of Oulx. Founded in 1907, it is the oldest French ski resort, but now offers modern facilities, a fabulous choice of activities on both sides of the border and breathtaking panoramas from the summit at 2700m.The ultra-modern snow park will appeal to the most adventurous whilst a 2km long snow-front is the perfect setting for beginners with a new area covering 50.000m2, including a travelator, a free lift and a nursery.Montgen�vre is a friendly mountain community with a Latin flavour and lots of character offering a fun programme of events throughout the season. If you love apr�s ski, the fun doesn’t end when the lifts close for the day: choose a snowmobile trip, a ride on a piste basher or join “Les Pl�iades”, a snow shoe trek by torchlight to discover the wonders of the mountain night sky.
