An ideal choice for families with a variety of slopes for all abilities
Claviere is a small resort right on the border with France. In fact the fantastic 400kms of ski runs in the Milky Way area connects both Claviere and neighbouring Montgenèvre in France, in addition to Sauze, Sestriere, Sansicario and Cesana. The characteristic mountain village architecture of Claviere is a charming blend of old and new, set amidst breathtaking scenery and the locals claim it has the best snow conditions in the Milky Way.
The nursery slopes are located near the centre of the resort and beginners soon move up with the 4-seater La Coche chairlift where a broad blue run will take you back down into Claviere.
The Milky Way offers some great skiing for intermediates. From the top of Claviere intermediates have the option to ski back down to Claviere or take the link over to Sansicario opening up the rest of the glorious Italian Milky Way ski area.
Some great skiing for better skiers can be found by taking the 4-seater Col Boeuf chairlift from the bottom of Claviere. This gives a couple of good options from getting some speed up and racing back down the black 99 into Claviere to cutting across the red 99 which is the run used to link Claviere with Montgènevre in France.
Natural ice rink (weather dependant), take the public bus (local charge) to the old walled town Briancon in France where there is a swimming pool and shops
