Limone Ski Resort

The Limone ski slopes and the town itself are beautiful and as yet undiscovered. Great news for those who prefer not to follow the herd and making the area an excellent alternative to the more famous ski resorts in Italy.

Limone SkiResort

The whole of the Valli Cunese is a firm favourite of mine, summer and winter. One of the big advantages of this area is that it offers a rich and varied experience and a lot more besides just winter sports.

When you are not on the slopes you will find plenty of unspoilt and quaint villages and towns to explore. Add to that a culinary experience second to none and you'll realise your in for a treat.

The Valli del Cunese (Valley of Cuneo) is renowned within Italy as producing the best truffles, mushrooms and some of the best cheeses in Italy. This together with the great local wines means you'll need to prepare for gastronomic heaven.

Need a place to stay?

Limone has a wonderful hotel. Truly a pleasure. Brilliantly positioned for the ski slopes and the town shops and restaurants too - click for more details.

The Town & The Skiing

The best ski slopes in this area is the Riserva Bianca (White Reserve). This consists of Limone Piemonte, Limonetto and Quota 1400.

In terms of the technical stuff, which I know is important to many, the Riserva Bianca has more than 80 kms of ski slopes. Over 20kms of artificial snow slopes are also available if needed. Six of the pistes/slopes are classified as easy with twenty-nine at intermediate level and five rated difficult.

The views from some of the mountain peaks are incredible – From the peak of Mount Pepino, on a clear day, you can see right across the Mediterranean all the way to Corsica and also inland across the Piedmont plain - truly a breathtakingly beautiful experience.

Limone is also a charming little town in its own right. The town dates back to Roman times and the residents speak a language all of their own. There are some great little restaurants and taverns offering the local specialties and those of Piedmont in general. Try the Maito Restaurant in Via Beltrandi, 10 - you'll find it on the map at the foot of the page.

With great food, great skiing, magnificent scenery and plenty to see and do, the Limone ski slopes, the town itself and the Valli del Cunese are certainly well worth a visit.
