Montgenevre has invested more than €3 million to improve its ski area for beginners this winter.
The biggest new addition includes the creation of a 50,000-square-metre space especially for beginners and families with a free ski lift ‘La Durance' and a snow garden.
Further improvements include a new layout for the Front de Neige to make it more beginner-friendly; the dismantling of the bottom lifts at Mini-Chenaillet, Chenaillet, and Barral in order to encourage children and beginners to use the telemix (hybrid lift) at Les Chalmettes up to Les Gondrans; an increase in capacity of lifts; and the purchase of three new snow grooming machines.
There are also new additions to the village, including new circuits for the free ski shuttles, new bus stops, and new vehicles; a new babysitting facility for children aged six months to six years old; a free museum exploring the history of ski resorts; and snowshoe excursion packages with the Apeak ski school.
Montgenevre is situated at an altitude of 1860 metres on the border with Italy. It is a traditional village in the Hautes-Alpes largely comprised of authentic wooden chalets. Skiers and snowboarders have access to 400 kilometres of pistes in the Milky Way ski area.
