Ski Holidays in Italy
We have some superb offers this season. Personally, I recommend the well situated
Appartamenti Bardonecchia. Great place to stay - I love it.
Bardonecchia is the ideal spot for one of the best ski holidays in Italy, it and Sestriere
are the oldest resorts in Italy and, nowadays, the resort can handle over 23,000 skiers an hour.
at 1312 meters above sea-level it does not have quite as much “piste”
as Sestriere but, with more than 120kms of marked piste, there is more
than enough to satisfy all skiers. No matter if you are a great skier, or
simply hopeless like me, you'll have enough to satisfy.
Cross-country skiers and snowboarders will find themselves in paradise too, enough to keep you busy for weeks on end.
the case of little snow Sestriere is the better option because only 15 kms
of artifical ski slopes are available in Bardonecchia. A shortage
of snow is only likely up to December but is rare thereafter.
slopes consist of 8 pistes classified as difficult and six particularly
great black runs. Feeling adventurous? Heli-skiing off-piste is available.
For the rest, there are 29 slopes of
intermediate level and 10 that are ideal for those at beginner level.
Getting to Bardonecchia
Bardonecchia lies right on the French border but, being on the main Italy
to France motorway, it is very easy to reach from Turin/Torino or
anywhere else in the
Val di Susa.
This makes it an easy place to visit on a day-trip should you decide to
base yourself elsewhere in the Val di Susa - even from fabulous
it can be done.
Bardonecchia vs Sestriere
If you are looking to combine your ski holiday with a little of
Piedmont’s rich heritage of art and culture, Bardonecchia is a far
better choice than Sestriere.
Bardonecchia has some great
restaurants and you are much more likely to experience a genuine taste
of Piedmont’s absolutely wonderful and ridiculously delicious Alpine
cuisine here. For those who enjoy an active après-ski scene then
Bardonecchia is also a good choice with many bars and a lively disco.
