Montgenevre will be open alongside Tignes and they will become the only two resorts presently open in France. Upon opening, the chair lifts and ski lifts of the Prarial, Col, Brousset, Chalmettes, and Rocher de l’Aigle will also be opening this weekend.

Situated on the Italian border and linked to the Milky Way ski area, Montgenèvre has a ski area of 400km of pistes and an impressive snowfall thus allowing it to open early for the ski season. Skiers visiting the resort can expect to find slopes to suit all skiing levels. With nursery slopes at village level for beginners and the wide pistes of Les Anges and Le Querelay including the long red run from Le Chalvet at 2,680m for the intermediate and advanced skiers.
