Claviere Introduction

Claviere is a small Italian village located on the border with France. The original village is itself very pretty and lies in stunning surroundings. The expansion to accommodate winter visitors could have been done more sympathetically. Having said that, the landscape is spectacularly beautiful and the skiing is said to be the best in the Milky Way. Apart from its local slopes it has the benefit of four hundred kilometres of piste in the afore mentioned area. Claviere lies at an altitude of seventeen sixty metres with the highest lift at twenty nine thousand metres so it is a fairly snow sure resort. Local slopes are best for intermediate and novice skiers. There is lift access to the French resort of Montgenevre. Boarders have a snow park but there is no pipe. There are excellent ski schools for adults and children and there are childcare facilities. The hotels, apartments and chalets provide comfortable accommodation and cater for most budgets. A limited number of shops supply holiday essentials and sporting equipment and accessories. Less than ten restaurants serve traditional Italian fare and with five bars and one night club evenings are relaxed.
