Among the many stars of the Vialattea we find the resort of Claviere, a typical Alpine village located in the upper Susa Valley, where the Italian and French sides of the Vialattea meet. At an altitude of 1,760 meters, the small village full of typical mountain charm offers wonderful landscapes and slopes immersed in the woods. An ideal place for nature lovers, Claviere offers an enchanting panorama at the feet of the majestic Monte Chaberton, which, at 3131 meters, dominates the valley.

Ski slopes in Claviere not to be missed
- Slope 100 Colletto Verde
The analysis of the most fun and interesting slopes in the Alps includes the 100 slope in Claviere, made unique by stupendous views and international appeal. Runway 100, better known as the Colletto Verde run, is an initially black, then red and finally blue run that starts from Montgenèvre, right on the border between Italy and France, and takes its name from the mountain of the same name, the Colletto Verde, from whose summit at 2560 meters above sea level the runway descends toward Claviere, allowing the return to the Monti della Luna and offering a splendid panorama of the area. The most challenging section is the initial one, which is very steep (maximum gradient of 81%) but can be circumvented with a less technical variant. From the Colletto Verde there are excellent views of both the Vialattea area (visible on clear days as far as Sestriere) and the French Montgenevre area.
- Slope 93
Scenic trail that descends from Colle Bercia to La Coche. The trail is never too difficult, is wide and boasts artificial snowmaking. It is a slope particularly suitable for all types of skiers, providing fun and enjoyment for both beginners and more experienced skiers as it has numerous but fun changes of gradient. For less experienced skiers, it is possible to avoid the steep wall of Lago Rascià by taking the 93 bis variant that descends softly to the valley.
- Slope 90
Red, very scenic slope that starts from Colle Bercia, a peak that offers a wonderful view: you can sweep your gaze 360 degrees and savor the beauty of the Vialattea ski area and the enchanting surrounding mountains. Slope 93 descends softly and sinuously to the Rafuyel resort, at the arrival of the chairlift departing from Cesana. When analyzed in its entirety, slope 90 represents one of the longest runs in the Vialattea with a total elevation jump of 400 meters. Past the first section, at the junction with the central 22 Debe and 23, runway 90 turns blue and winds, entering the woods, with wide bends and a regular and very gentle slope down to the valley, tracing the summer dirt road that leads to the village of Sagnalonga.
- Slope 99
Red runway, of medium difficulty and relatively short, but of great strategic importance as it represents the connecting track between Claviere, the last Italian resort of Vialattea, with the French Montgenèvre. In fact, the slope starts from the release of the Col Boeuf chairlift and leads to the departure of the French Montquitaine and Tremplin lifts.
- Slope 91
Even the beginner skier will be comfortable at Claviere. Slope 91 is a blue one, served by the La Coche chairlift, the first lift one encounters when arriving at the ski resort. It is an easy slope that starts from the charming natural amphitheater of La Coche resort and runs through eventful passages in the surrounding forest. It has several changes of gradient suitable for beginners and also appreciated by better skiers who are pleased to indulge in a descent down a more relaxing slope.
