Apres Ski

We all love Montgenèvre for its excellent snow record, beautiful tree lined pistes, friendly ski schools, stunning scenery, great dining and warm welcome. But there’s even more! Whether you are looking for something to do in the evenings, on a bad weather day, for non-skiers or to simply make the most of your lift pass, we have years of tried and tested tips and experience at your disposal.

With the growth of our sister company Snow.Cab we now have 12 mini busses and their qualified and professional drivers on hand to help you and your family and friends make each holiday here even more memorable than the last. Situated on the Franco/Italian border in the historical region of Piedmont, Montgenèvre and its surrounding area offers a huge range of things to do for skiers and non-skiers alike.

Italian wine tasting aperitivo experience

We take you from your accommodation via private transfer to Sans Sicario where Clementina, the sommelier presents a range of stunning red, white and sparkling wines from Italy. This is accompanied with some wonderful mountain hors d'oeuvre’s and snacks.

    Learn to listen to nature, observe tracks in the snow and walk like a trapper - that's the program for this unmissable winter outing! It promises great family moments and surprises in the woods!"

  • Tuesday: “CATCH ME IF YOU CAN!

    An emblematic figure of the mountains, the chamois is as wild as it is solitary, and as fast as lightning. Like its cousin the dahu, seeing it is almost a miracle and requires perseverance, or perhaps luck. Unless you are clever and go and observe it accompanied, between Doire & Rio Secco, where you know it is hidden!"

  • Wednesday: "HIGHLIGHTS

    A walk in the heart of nature in a pine forest. At the lookout, discover the Blockhaus and the view of the Clarée and Durance valleys and its forts classified as World Heritage by UNESCO."

  • Thursday: "ONCE UPON A TIME...MONTGENEVRE

    Its history, its smugglers' paths, up to the 1st International Skiing Competition in 1907! It even seems that Hannibal and his troops passed through the Col de Montgenèvre with his elephants..."

  • Friday: "DELICACIES AT THE TOP

    When you need a break... to catch your breath and enjoy the view! These outings "according to the chef's inspiration" are varied, just like the snacks prepared for you. Sometimes sweet, sometimes savoury, our summit delicacies will delight you, with flavours from France and Italy!"

FOR EVERY WALK BRING SNOWSHOES, SKI POLES, BACKPACK AND WATER

    "NOWHERE ELSE

    A lot of emotions during this outing on the side of Cervières. In the middle of breathtaking landscapes and in the shade of the cliffs, the entrance to the bunker of the aîttes is hidden, a real gallery nestled in the hollow of the mountain, almost invisible in winter.
    There is no magic formula to visit it, you just need to have the key! Well guarded by your esf guide, it allows you to penetrate the defensive work to go back in time and discover the living conditions of the 80 soldiers who could hide there for 30 days!
    On the way back, tasting of local products at the farm.
    A unique experience!

    IN THE FOOTSTEPS OF ALEX HUGO...

    In the heart of one of the most beautiful valleys of the Alps, live a day "out of time", and discover the secrets of this wild valley, its preserved hamlets and its breathtaking landscapes.
    It is not for nothing that television chose the Clarée valley and the village of Névache for the Alex Hugo series. More than just a setting, the landscapes are an integral part of the series.
    Authentic landscapes and preserved hamlets.
    Please bring a picnic lunch and a small backpack with a bottle of water."

Paragliding
…or Parapent as it’s known in France, is as breath-taking as you’d imagine with guests returning grinning from ear-to-ear. Possible with or without skis/board, it’s actually recommended to take your skis/board if you have fitness or joint issues as it’s much easier than running for the take off! The experienced Pilots will talk you through the process and taylor the flight to your confidence. This is a bit more indulgent than the other apres but makes an incredible present for that special someone (especially if that someone is YOU).
