The excellent ski school in Bardonecchia attracts hundreds of Brits to the resort every year. Melezet and Campo Smith both have extensive beginners areas to complete your first turns on, and with guidance from the friendly ski school, newbies will quickly progress to the higher, yet quiet, 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 as well as 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 ascends to 1922m.
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.
Rack up your mileage with a Ski Away-day to Montgenèvre. Just a 45-minute bus ride away from Bardonecchia, you’ll be able to test out some of the steepest black runs in the Milky Way – including the Tetras run – slice down the mogul-field slopes and admire absolutely beautiful views over the both the Italian and French Alps. With your 6-day local lift pass, you get 1 free day to let loose on the fabulous mountains to slide, carve or freestyle to your heart’s content. Speak to your rep for more details.
