    A friendly, traditional Italian resort with a surprising ski area

    Bardonecchia is in a sunny valley right on the border of neighbouring France.
    Two of its three ski areas are interlinked providing a fairly extensive ski area on two separate mountains. The year-round town has a very convenient road and rail link, making it a popular ski resort with weekenders from Turin, but this is the only time that the slopes do get a bit busy. Overall it’s an ideal area for beginners with un-crowded slopes and leisurely pistes ideal for cruising.

    Bardonecchia was somewhat overlooked until the 2006 Turin Olympics brought investment to the town and raised its profile as a great value beginner and intermediate destination. For those wanting to test their skills or watch the pros head to the Olympic Snow Park and half pipe in Melezet, just a couple of miles away and reachable using Bardonecchia’s free town and ski bus.

    The town itself offers the young at heart some great nightlife haunts, especially at the weekends. Our favourite is the American themed Garage on Via Medail – it’s popular with the locals and usually open until the early hours at the weekends. Being a main town Bardonecchia also has plenty of other activities, including a cinema, ice rink, a sports centre and a wide range of over 80 shops.

    While there, you can explore a little further afield with a day skiing in Montgenévre in France, included on the lift pass.

    • 2 for 1 lift pass

      Book early and get on the slopes for less. Buy one adult lift pass and get another one free when you book your ski holiday today.

      Hurry – availability is very limited for 2 for 1 lift passes for some hotels, resorts or countries and when they're gone the offer will end.

      Certain departure dates are also excluded. See terms and conditions for details.

    • €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.

      Terms apply.

    Ski information

    Beginners

    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.

    Intermediates

    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.

    Advanced

    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.
