Montgenèvre aims higher

23rd May 2011, by Chris Gill



Montgenèvre in the southern part of the French Alps is to raise its ski area top slopes to 3000m in the next two years.

The resort is developing a new area of slopes on Mt Chaberton, a peak straddling the Italian Alps on the sunnier Chalvet side of the ski domain, and just above Claviere (on the Italian side).

Apparently, 26 million euros has been invested to create the new area. They have, so far, shaped a new blue run from 3000m. But you’ll have to wait until the official opening in 2012/13.

Montgenèvre has been investing heavily in its ski infrastructure and resort lodging over the past few years, upgrading some lifts and developing a good nursery area at the foot of the slopes. The resort is linked to Clavière, which is also part of Italy’s Milky Way ski area. On the French side, it’s is easily accessible from Briançon or on day trips from Serre Chevalier for example.
