Resort Information

A school ski trip to Montgenèvre in France will offer you access to the Milky Way ski area – most of which is in Italy. This opportunity to ski in two countries and experience two cultures is one your students will never forget. The snow record here is fantastic, and better even than its Italian counterparts. The village itself is ideal for school ski groups – charming and quiet, this feels like a safe place to bring a group of students. The laid-back atmosphere and lack of boisterous nightlife means you can just relax and enjoy an unforgettable French ski holiday with your students. And, to make life even easier, your accommodation will be close to a lift, offering easy access to the slopes.

Skiing Information

Montgenèvre is part of the Milky Way (Via Lattea in Italian) ski area, so choosing this resort for your school ski trip gives you convenient access to over 400km of piste. As most of the runs are above 2500m, the snow conditions are guaranteed throughout the season. The nursery slopes are at village level which is super convenient for beginners. Plus, thanks to the altitude, there’s no issue with snow cover here as there can be at other, lower resorts. Intermediates will have great fun with the excellent variety of runs that often start above the treeline, before descending through the trees. For the expert skiers, there are nine black runs in Montgenèvre itself, with plenty more challenging terrain throughout the rest of the Milky Way.

I love being able to put together exciting packages to offer school groups the opportunity to do what they love while soaking up another culture.– Ben McCafferty Head of Sales & Product

Don't take our word for it …

Les Deux Alpes is a fantastic resort for school groups. One of the best towns for après-ski activities. The slopes have enough variation for all levels of skiing and having returned here for the 2nd time, I can safely say it's one of our favourites. The hotel was easy walking distance. The resort was very quiet when we were there, never once queuing for a lift/cable car. The instruction from the ski school was fantastic and our students progressed beyond expectation. — Holden Lane High School
