Keswick Scout Group 2016 Skiing Trip 
Yes it’s Italy! 
Saturday 13th February 2015 to Sunday 21st February 2016

Resort

The resort of Clavier is on the French border, which allows you to ski directly into France (Montgenèvre). The traditional mountain village of Claviere is a charming mix of old and new, set amidst a breath-taking backdrop, and offers all you could ever want from a ski resort. Claviere is a very relaxed and quiet resort, with friendly and hospitable residents, as well as a number of shops, restaurants and even a natural ice rink. Italy’s oldest resort is perfect your group’s trip.

Skiing

The resort height is 1760m and the top station is 2630m, so the snow conditions are generally very good. The area has an excellent snow record, as snow storms roll through the valley up to the Col and, with many north-facing slopes, it keeps the snow well. Claviere, with the Monti Della Luna pass, offers access to over 110km of pistes, including Claviere and Cesana. There is a very good beginner area, which is snow-reliable and uncrowded and, for the more experienced skiers, there are plenty of blues, reds and even Olympic runs. There is a great variety of high, wide, open pistes and attractive tree-lined runs back to the village. The same pass also gives you one day’s skiing in Montgenèvre and one day’s skiing in the whole of the Milky Way. Claviere is, in fact, one of the entry points into the Milky Way ski area, which offers, 400km of connected skiing, including Sestriere and Sauze d’Oulx. We can include a 6-day Milky Way pass for a small supplement.

Hotel Savoia

The Hotel Savoia enjoys a convenient location close to the centre of Claviere. All Bedrooms are ensuite. The hotel is well suited for groups, having a Restaurant, Bar Lounge and TV room that could be used for group events. It also has ski storage onsite. 

Out of the hotel there is Ice Skating within walking distance of the hotel and a visit to a local pizzeria would offer a traditional taste of Italy. Further afield is the French town of Briançon with its pedestrianised old city, its shops or even its swimming pool for a change of sport.
Location
Claviere stands just a few hundred yards from France. Groups might enjoy the novelty of skiing in both Italy and into the resort of Montgenevre.

Claviere’ s situation means that it has an excellent snow record and is perfect for skiing throughout the season!

Ski two countries in one trip…
Claviere boarders France which Skiing two countries in a day is a novel and fun experience!
