So what's it like?
A friendly, traditional Italian resort with a surprising ski area
Bardonecchia is located in a sunny valley right on the border with neighbouring France. Two of its three ski areas are interlinked providing a ski area with a varied 100kms of marked piste. It has grown from an authentic Italian town with tree lined streets, to a bustling ski resort and combines minimal weekday lift queuing with a lively weekend atmosphere. Explore a little further afield with a day skiing in Montgenèvre in France, included on your lift pass.
€50 hotel credit
There'll be a credit of €50 waiting for you at the hotel with this offer. Use it in the bar or restaurant and save some cash while you're away.
Melezet and Campo Smith both have extensive beginners areas and with guidance from the friendly ski school first time skiers are soon progressing to the higher long blue runs at Colomion and Melezet.
The ski areas of Melezet and Colomion are linked by a series of magnificent long red and blue runs with several blacks to get the blood racing. The Fisi 50 from Colomion is a World Cup race run and was also an Olympic run in 2006! Take the free ski bus to the Jafferau area where a long double chairlift rises to 1922 metres.
Excellent off-piste skiing for the more experienced skier. High on Jafferau there are wide open bowls with bumps, jumps and gullies above the treeline. Heli-skiing is available for off-piste skiing behind Melezet.
Nightlife is busiest at weekends with several bars are open 'til late. Try: • Bar Colomion • Igloo Bar • Playtime Disco (Fri & Sat)
