Welcome to Bardonecchia Ski Resort

Bardonecchia is a real gem of a resort. Although a venue in the 2006 Winter Olympics and a little over an hour’s drive from Turin, it’s not as well known as it could be. It’s home to 39 runs split between two ski areas either side of town linked by bus, with blue runs making up almost a half of the entire pisted area. It’s also quieter than more popular resorts, so it’s an ideal place for beginners and families searching for wide groomers without the hordes. There is a snow park too, home to a world class halfpipe, but boarders should be aware there are some drag lifts to negotiate.

Best time to ski in Bardonecchia

The slopes open at the beginning of December, earlier than many other places in the Alps, and stay open through to mid April. With pistes up to 2,750m Bardonecchia has a good height for snow-security with the potential to cover 50% of the skiable area with artificial snow in case of a lean spell. High season is around Christmas and New Year, and then it gets popular again in February, so avoid those peak periods if price is your main concern. With Turin two hours away on the train, it can also fill up at the weekend – but never to the extent that it feels crowded on the slopes. As is often the case, the period around Christmas time and new year is generally busy, which makes for a lively après-ski but may increase waiting times and demand.

Things to do in Bardonecchia

Keen for a day off the skis but still want to explore the mountain? There are a number of signposted walks you can do in snowshoes or ciaspole, as they are known in the local Piedmontese dialect. You can also try cross-country skiing – there are a few easy loops for first timers. There’s also ice skating, snow tubing and e-fat bikes. Part of the appeal of skiing in Italy of course is its cuisine, and there are numerous restaurants in town – as well as up on the mountain – serving delicious local dishes and wines from the region. In town, the après is pretty quiet during the week but things liven up at the weekend as locals arrive from the city.
