Best Skiing in Italy?

Claviere

With some of the best skiing in Italy, this little resort, located at 1760m, offers everything you could possibly want. Claviere has great skiing in the Milky Way, unbeatable scenery and is a picturesque little village with well over a thousand years of history.

Claviere is very easy to get to, it is only a ninety minute drive from Torino. Perfect if you are flying into Turin.

Even arriving by train isn't a bad idea. Trains in Italy are very cheap and reliable and the train from Torino stops at the station of Oulx from where there is regular public transport to Claviere.

Where to Stay in Claviere

The Hotel Clari is right in the little village and offers absolutely everything you might need, including a sauna, a gym and a play area for the children. They even organise discounts at the nearby ski and snowboard schools!

Cross country skiing is top rate here with some of the best cross country skiing in Piedmont. The 16 km circuit from Claviere to Monginevro and back is highly recommended by those who know about these things.

If, like me, cross country is not your thing then all is far from lost. Claviere and the surrounding area offers over 400 kilometres of great downhill slopes.

The Apres Ski scene is good. Not quite as lively as Bardonecchia or Setriere but still lots of fun and the town boasts some really excellent and typically Piedmontese restaurants. Many reckon that Piedmont's cuisine is the best in Italy so you're in for a treat. Work up a good appetite on the slopes and head to 'L Gran Bouc in Via Nazionale, 24A for dinner.

Make sure you buy the excellent value Claviere ski pass which entitles you to unlimited skiing in Claviere and Cesana too.
