Great resort for beginners and Intermediates especially and good value. Village in a valley, everything very central and no queuing. Accommodation, shops, bars restaurants. Ski both sides of mountain and into Italy, all grades of runs. Great if you want to ski / relax / sunbathe / enjoy French food. Not good for a stay with apres ski - if that's what you want go to Austria. ...

Wonderful resort, wide pistes, not at all busy, never queued all week. The snow was wonderful. skied 30/35 miles a day. Skiing accross the border into Sauze dOulx Italy is an adventure and lunching at the sweet little Italian restaurants for variety made it a great trip. Montgenevre is very safe for kids, especially in the evening. Only downside - not many restaurants on the mountain, but overall wonderful going back again. ...

Montgenerve has lots to offer and even the children had the best time ever. Pretty scenery with the unspoiled villages and the locals were top class. The range of slopes was excellent and enough to challenge all levels both on and off piste. ...

For supposedly the busiest week of the season the slopes and lifts were remarkably unpacked. Add to that the excellent snow and this was one of the best resorts that I have skied at. There are plenty of greens and easy blues for beginners but the real attraction of Montgenevre is the number and quality of fast tree lined reds which are quite simply a joy. There are a few blacks as well and these are all relatively straight forward, well pisted and a real confidence builder. The key to this resort is the number of runs that you can access meaning that you can literally chase the sun and always ski on a slope in sunlight as there are lots of peaks to choose from. Accommodation is fine and no m...

con Few challenges for experts pro No waiting at the lifts

I went with a party of twelve who were a mix of abilities. Fortunately we had loads of new snow so the slopes were in excellent condition. The town is small but has everything you need. Don't go if you are looking for loud music and street parties but the pubs are good and restaurants are reasonable for price and all seem to have extensive menus. From what I could determine, most accommodation is within easy reach of the lifts. Our hotel was only 100 metres from the main chair and a short ski to the gondola. As far as the skiing is concerned, Montgenevre is a paradise for intermediates and the gentle long green run (Crete) from the top of the mountain is brilliant for beginners to learn and ...
