Known way back in the days of Hannibal and Julius Caesa, and also mentioned by Petrarch in 1353, Claviere is a small town with a great best, looking out onto an equally valid present. Situated at an altitude of 1760 metres, on the southern face of Monte Chaberton, it offers guests numerous sporting systems and reception facilities.



In Claviere, one can ski amidst enchanting natural scenery, also enjoying the opportunity to add an international touch to the day by adventuring onto the French slopes of Monginevro, returing to Italy along the panoramic run of the Colletto Verde, the initial stretch of which is extremely difficult. A locality of the Via Lattea  (Milky Way) ski district, Claviere doesn’t only offer downhill skiing. For those with a passion for natural humps, the resort offers the highly enjoyable 24 Montanina run.


Snowboarding, ice skating – by day and by night – and Nordic skiing, on the renowned Claviere – Monginevro circuit measuring about 16 Km, not forgetting the recent recovery of the historical ski jump built around the 1920’s, complete the activities offered to tourists by this resort, which has always been a favourite destination of those who love the snow.



There is a good ski school in Claviere and the nursery slopes are near the centre of the ski resort, confident beginners can progress to a big blue run that starts above the trees and ends back in the village. There are 50kms of local slopes to explore around Claviere including plenty for intermediate skiers and many runs through the trees, the longest being 6kms. Advanced skiers have access to the 400kms of the Milky Way ski area. There is a snowboard park in the area and 35kms of cross country skiing including trails crossing into France.
