Italian Ski Resort


Piedmont is world famous for its skiing. The best of Italy's ski resorts are to be found here.

Turin was, for good reason, the host city for the 2006 Winter Olympics – the city lies within 30 kilometers of some the best of these resorts.

Yo can easily organise your own holiday, forget abot a ski package. Basically book a flight into Turin, then book yourself a hotel to suit your budget online

in one of Italy's fabulous ski resorts.

To get from Turin to the ski resort I would suggest you hire a car. I have always found it to be cheaper to rent the car before you leave rather than at the airport on arrival.

The roads from Turin to nearly all the main resorts in Piedmont, Lombardy and Aosta are excellent - within an hour you should be able to reach nearly all the major resorts.

In Turin and the rest of Piedmont skiing is THE most popular sport – after football (soccer) of course. Most people head out to the slopes at the first opportunity.

Some of these places are amongst the better known Italian ski resorts but others are little known and/or away from the main ski towns – ideal if you want to combine an Italian ski holiday with a relaxing winter getaway.

The two best known, and in many ways best Italian resorts, are Bardonecchia and Sestriere. These two towns are great gateways to discovering Piedmont. Both offer great skiing.

One of the other well known resorts is

Sauze d’Oulx Not far from Sestriere, Sauze is one of the oldest ski resorts in Piedmont and offers great skiing, particularly for those of beginner or intermediate level.


Claviere
is a delightful resort with over 400 kilometers of piste in the famous Milky Way.

There are many lesser known ski areas of Piedmont. The Valli del Cunese and the wonderful village of Limone is one of my favourite ski resorts and a delightful little Piedmont mountain town.

For off-piste skiing and Italy's highest ski lift then Alagna is a good choice. On the slopes of Monte Rosa, it is still virtually undiscovered and offers superb skiing, climbing, hiking and much more.

Alagna is kind of a model resort in that it is a ski resort while at the same time a village maintaining its very unique character. Alagna really is funny little place with hearty foods and a very strange medieval language. No one in Italy has a clue what they are on about!
