Claviere is always one of our most popular destinations for schools. The skiing here is excellent and includes one day on the Milky Way, one of the biggest systems in the world, and one day in the neighbouring French resort of Montgenèvre.
The local skiing is excellent and is distinguished by delightful tree runs. The Claviere runs are varied and attractive, curving through the trees on the shoulders of the high divide between Italy and France. Like neighbouring Montgenèvre, the snow record is first class.
For beginner groups there is a pleasant nursery area at resort height with a moving carpet, as well as a long blue run which starts above the trees and goes all the way back to the village. Enthusiastic beginners will feel a great sense of achievement when they manage it.
Intermediates have many choices, whilst advanced skiers have some good reds and the rest of the Milky Way to explore.
Claviere also has plenty of activities available for your group in the evenings. Try ice-skating on the outdoor rink, enjoy Karaoke, a pizza evening, or experience the thrill of a nighttime skidoo ride to enjoy a hot chocolate high in the mountains!
