Join the adventure this winter and in the years to come!
Mountains of history:
THE HISTORY OF MONTGENEVRE
At the grand age of 103, Montgenèvre, one of the oldest ski resorts in the world, faces the future with great serenity.
Well before 1907, date of the very first international ski competition, the slopes
of Mount Janus (see inset), were conquered by a man named Hannibal who was
believed to have travelled from Carthage to Rome across the Alps via the Montgenèvre mountain pass.
Montgenèvre: an alpine pass, a village, a name that can be found on some of the
oldest maps. This natural passageway, an ancient historical and geographical link,
offered the valley and its residents a sense of identity that has been preciously
preserved over the centuries.
Montgenèvre was the birthplace of winter sports. It was the military that discovered this strategic manner of travel during the long the winter months. At a
much later date, Montgenèvre, christened “Chamonix in the south”, benefited
from an excellent reputation, much loved by famous people including Jean Gabin,
Colette, Jean Cocoteau and Mistinguette. They all sought in Montgenèvre a haven
of peaceful sunshine.
Several years later war ravaged Montgenèvre as the French troops fought the
Looking upwards from the village one can admire the stars, the blue sky and
sunshine but also the remains of it’s fortified past, the walls of Fort Chaberton
and Fort Janus.
Montgenèvre is a mountain pass, a hive of history and ancient witness to local tales that demonstrate alpine life in these
valleys. The church bell chimes to the rhythm of those that live and work here. Those whose past, rich in history, has forged
their identity and fed their courage.
The place to be……..
Between the two World wars, Montgenèvre was host to aristocrats and
the flamboyant upper class. The creation of the first ski lift in 1936
accelerated the fashion to ski. During the 30’s and the 40’s Montgenèvre
was extremely popular with the wealthy Parisian jet set. Famous writers
and artists resided here. Montgenèvre became the resort in which to be
Montgenevre : birthplace of
1907: First international
Back in 1895, two Norwegian Officers
gave a ski demonstration in Montgenèvre.
They even started to initiate French soldiers to this technique.
In 1904 the Ministry of War created the
1st ski school in Brinaçon. From 1904 to 1914 more than 5000
recruits were trained to ski there. The regiments greatly contributed
to the growing popularity of skiing, offering free skis to villagers from
the high valleys. Numerous soldiers became voluntary instructors. A
wooden pole was used to maintain balance and one simply fell to the
floor in order to stop.
In mid February 1907, under the impulse of the French Alpine Club,
Touring Club and the Army, Montgenèvre hosted its first international
ski competition. Crowds of more than 3000 spectators and officials
came from Italy, Switzerland, Austria, Sweden and Norway to encourage competitors
An army of elephants…
Towards the end of year 219, General Hannibal Barca left Spain
with his army of 50 000 infantry (9000 horses and 37 elephants).
He crossed the Pyranees mountains and then the Alps to reach the
north of Italy where he won a series of victories over the Roman legions,
failing however to conquer Rome.
Although it is believed that Hannibal travelled through Montgenèvre,
his exact itinerary is a source of discussion. However, it remains fact
that Julius Cesar passed through Montgenèvre to join the Gaule several
Janus, the Roman God of doors and openings, gave his name to Montgenèvre. Mount Janus keeps watch of the mountain
pass, a natural passageway between France and Italy. The military heritage here is absolutely exceptional. Vauban, only a few
kilometres away, has recently been classified as world heritage by UNESCO.
The Italian inf luence…
1343 saw the creation of the Republic of Essartons, an independent state composed of 51 towns and villages on
both sides of Mount Viso. Montgenèvre was amongst the villages concerned.
Four centuries of independence were to follow: a unique language, tax collection system, culture and political
environment. The official state documents were preciously kept and are still visible today.
Ideas for media coverage
• Mount Chaberton and its 3130m summit lends its name to the mountain range that surrounds Mont-
genèvre. Skiers will soon be able to reach the Italian border from the summit. More than 70 years ago, Mussolini and his troops
bombarded Briançon from the very same summit.
Today, Mount Chaberton symbolizes a peaceful entente between France and Italy, beautifully incarnated by the resort of Montgenèvre.
Learn more about this period, the history of customs and trans-border relationships. Take the opportunity to meet some of the locals that
experienced war and military operations in the area.
• Franco-Italian Co-operation. Pioneer in the European field Montgenèvre has, for many years,
anticipated the richness of relations with neighbouring Italy. A trans-border Liaison & Co-operation Committee was created in 2001 between Montgenèvre and the neighbouring Italian village of Clavières. Today
Montgenèvre boasts numerous examples of successful co-operation between the two villages:
• A nursery opens to children from Montgenèvre and the neighbouring resort of Clavière in Italy.
The co-management of the cross-country ski area and the 18 hole golf course.
A joint programme of events, protection of the environment, footpaths, prevention, road access and the management of international traffic.

took place here.
The Italian inf luence
Our Italian friends impressively renovated the road along the Montgenèvre mountain pass in a very short period of time.
Renowned for heavy snow and avalanche risks and previously subject to closure, the road is now equipped with tunnels and
avalanche barriers creating permanent direct access to the resort.
Access from the Italian side is now extremely easy; from Lyon, take the Fréjus tunnel, leave the motorway and follow the dual
carriageway towards Montgenèvre. A 2 1/2 hour journey PLUS a reduction of 13€40 on your ski pass is you use this
• During the month of February the famous cross-country ski
marathon runs from village to village.
• Montgenèvre is surrounded by a number
of national parks (Ecrins, Queras, Vanoise and
Val Troncea on the Italian side). Enjoy a great choice
of snow-shoe itineraries only steps from the resort.
The road through Montgenèvre runs underground. The creation of a tunnel
underneath the slopes has changed the face of the resort and improved it
greatly for pedestrians. At the start of the coming season, on the 3rd December, one of the World’s best DJ’s is programmed to mix in the tunnel. An
event to be repeated on 24th April to celebrate the end of the season.
Guaranteed Snow & Sunshine!
The height of Montgenèvre and its geographical situation subject to
low pressure fronts from the west and return weather fronts from
the east plus vast artificial snow making facilities make the resort
famous for great quality snow conditions (8 metres of combined
snow falls in 2009).
Every year without fail, Montgenèvre is the first resort to open its
slopes. A resort that boasts not only the earliest opening date but also
the greatest number of ski days (except glacier resorts) where fresh
powder can still be found up to eight days after the last snow fall.
Better again; Montgenèvre is situated in the Southern Alps, reputed
for 300 days of sunshine per year.
