Adventure - a little bit further...
We have teamed up with a local man of the mountains Jean-Paul Carlhian to provide a little bit extra for those who want to go a little bit further.
A word from our Adventure co-ordinator Jean-Paul Carlhian.
"You have chosen Go Montgenevre for your holiday this winter and you’ve made a good choice with the professionalism, the enthusiasm and care of James, Julie and their team.
Would you like an extra angle of adventure for your holiday in Montgenevre? –to discover the world of skiing beyond the normal runs –special lessons, half days, full days -off piste, cross country, snow treks in Montgenevre or in the neighbouring resorts –the Milky Way, Serre Chevalier, Les Deux Alpes, Puy St Vincent. Or why not try some heli-skiing.
With over 30 years of experience in the resort and the region and with a thorough knowledge of the local terrains I can take you to where you want to go and maybe where you’ve never been before. , Maybe you’re a beginner looking to find what’s out there or more experienced and finding the normal slopes a little limiting for your level. I offer you a taste of adventure but within the limits demanded by safety and your skill level.
Language? …being married to an English woman language is not a problem!"
Senior Instructor Montgenèvre
Heliskiing. Based in the neighbouring resort of Sauze D'Oulx we can organise a helicopter ride that will take you and an instructor to the top of a local mountain. You will then go off piste down the mountain and either be picked up by helicopter and taken back to resort or onto another mountain for a second run. Prices are from only £210 per person for a drop (based on 4 people sharing).
Ski away days: Why not try another resort for a day? Trips can be arranged to Serre Chevalier and someone will be there to show you round if you want. See our ‘adventure page.’
For those who don’t fancy skiing all the way round the Milky Way and back why not be driven half way and ski back to Montgenèvre. Our trip takes you to Sauze D’Oulx and someone will accompany you back to Montgenèvre. Full day trips to Sauze D’Oulx can also be organised.
Off Piste Adventures: Discover unspoilt fresh powder pistes together with an experienced local guide. From as little as 1.5 hours to a full day we can organise it for you. From as little as £44 per person.
Skidoo Riding: Something to get your adrenaline going. Drive around for an hour on your very own skidoo, following an instructor, he'll take you around a course of the mountains in Montgenevre. With a mixture of inclines and declines, steady and fast paces, this is really worth a go out at. The piste's will be silent and you can often catch the sun-setting. 70 euros for the driver and a further 10 euros for a passenger (you can swap drivers half way through).
Snow Shoe treks: After piste snow shoe walks up the mountain through the forstes to secret tippees and Mongolain Yurts -you will be treaed to local delicacies and some warming drinks. Prices from as little as £28 per person.
If you have any other ideas or things you'd like to do let us know and we'll try to organise it for you.
