GREAT TO BE BACK AT THE PASSERO PELLEGRINO

Montgenèvre Ski Resort is linked to the Via Lattea (Milky Way) ski area, which has 400 km of pistes. Montgenevre’s ski area has 85 km of pistes comprising 8 green runs, 12 blue, 22 red and 10 black slopes. The 2006 Winter Olympics were held in the Via Lattea. The resort is famed for lots of sun, good snow and very good for intermediates. The resort height begins at 1,860 metres and its highest pointis 2,577 metres. It was built in 1907 and claims to be one of the first ski resorts in France. The town lacks night life, which makes it family friendly.

SKIING CONDITIONS – PERFECT!

WE HAD SOME LOVELY SNOW. WE SKIED DAY 1 IN CLAVIERE. DAYS 2, 3, 4 AND 5 IN MONTGENEVR. DAY 6 IN CLAVIERE

Claviere is a municipality in the Metropolitan City of Turin in the Italian region of Piedmont, located about 80 kilometres (50 miles) west of the centre of Turin, near the border with France. Claviere is a small, but well equipped skiing village. The snow season lasts from December to April. The parish church has a Gothic-style portal.
