Resort Information

Best for:

Stay in Italy and ski into France on a school ski trip to Claviere! The Italian resort of Claviere sits right on the French border, which allows you the exciting opportunity to ski into the French resort of Montgenèvre. The traditional mountain village of Claviere is a charming mix of old and new, set amidst a breathtaking backdrop, and offers all you could ever want from a ski resort. Claviere is a very relaxed and quiet ski resort, where the friendly locals offer a warm welcome. There are a number of shops and restaurants, as well as a natural ice rink. And there are plenty of après-ski activities to keep your students entertained when they’re not skiing. All this makes the country's oldest resort the perfect choice for your next school ski holiday to Italy.

Skiing Information

The resort sits at an altitude of 1760m, with the top station at 2849m so, as you would expect, the snow conditions are usually very good. The area does, in general, have an excellent snow record and, with many north-facing slopes, tends to keep snow well. Thanks to the Monti Della Luna pass, you’ll have access to over 110km of pistes, including Claviere and Cesana. Any first-timers in your group will love the beginners’ area, which is both snow-reliable and uncrowded. For the more experienced skiers there are plenty of blues, reds and even Olympic runs. And there’s a great variety of high, wide, open pistes and attractive tree-lined runs back to the village. Your pass will give you one day’s skiing in Montgenèvre and one days’ skiing in the whole of the Milky Way, to which Claviere is one of the access points. We can include a 6-day Milky Way pass for a small supplement.
