Bardonecchia is a small fashionable mountain town in the north-west and a popular holiday destination for both skiing and snowboarding in Italy, both in the ski season and throughout the summer months with MTB and tourists looking to escape the Mediterranean bustle and prices.
Bardonecchia is also rated in the top ten of Italy’s ski resorts, and after hosting the snowboarding events of the Turin Winter Olympic Games in 2006, is largely considered “The Home” of Italian snowboarding. Many of Italy and Europe’s finest snowboarders base themselves at Bardonecchia, as do some of Italys’ leading skiing instructors and snowboard coaches. There is still chance to descend the “Olympic Piste” at Melezet, just one of the resorts main four ski areas – finishing alongside the Olympic half-pipe and Bardonecchia’s mighty fine snow-park.
Skiers have flocked to the slopes of Bardonecchia for many years, bringing with them all the razzle/dazzle of the Italian ski world to this part of the Susa Valley in Italy.
As a town, this place has been around since the time of the Romans and the place can still cut the mustard with a well set-out series of mountain slopes that are connected by some twenty-nine lifts, most of which are new 2 and 4 person chair lifts. The more advanced terrain are accessed by a few not-so-obvious drags. At Christmas 2017 a new 6 person chairlift was opened on the Jafferau ski area, replacing the rickety old chair and the proceeding drag to reach the top.
The 140 kilometres of marked pistes cover four main ski-areas all covered by the lift-pass (Melezet, Les Arnauds, Campo Smith and Jafferau) that are split either side of the valley floor. The town and the four ski-areas are accessed by a free shuttle bus service that passes about every 20 minutes between the hours of 09:00 and 17:20.
The main runs on the slopes of Bardonecchia will suit all levels, but overall are best for intermediates, but there are blacks to be discovered and plenty of trees, steeps and off piste for the advanced skier or rider at Jafferau. The bottom of Campo Smith is best suited to beginners with its nursery slope and both Campo Smith and Melezet are pretty evenly split for beginners and intermediates. One thing that is common with Campo Smith and Melezet are the lift queues on a weekend (especially Sundays), which can be horrendously long – take our advice and head to Jafferau on a weekend.
As an Italian resort Bardonecchia is a chic, quiet town with an assortment of bars and restaurants to suit most tastes and budgets. But lively apres-ski is to be found. Both the newly refurbished Haralds Bar and restaurant, and Il Due Merli discothèque at Campo Smith deserve special mention for all visitors. And amongst the more knowledgable skiing, snowboarding and spectator sport viewing crowd, the Bar Stazione (bar at the train station) sells the cheapest beer and wine in the town with SkyTV.
If you want to watch Sky in a more relaxed atmosphere with a fine selection of beers and a pizza, then we thouroughly recommend Cafè Obelix directly opposite the train station. Great pizza and great people – we thoroughly recommend “la Napolitana con aglio” (a tomato, mozzarella, anchovie and garlic pizza – ensure you ask for olio piccante, or the oil with chilli’s in it. Fantastic).The Obelix has countless TV’s and a big projector screen – if you want to watch the football or rugby then just ask and “big Obelix” will sort you out.
Bebop Soundclub is also a great night-time hotspot and can be found halfway up Via Medial (the high street) virtually immediately opposite UniCredit Bank. Enjoy!
Bardonecchia is located immediately next to the French border and for those arriving by car from Lyon in France, is the first exit in Italy immediately after Frejus tunnel. For those arriving by plane, Turin (Torino, airport code TRN) is the nearest airport and the resort is easily reached by public transport – a quick Airport Shuttle Bus into Turin city centre to Torino Porta Nuova railway station (the last stop of the bus). Bus tickets are sold from the kiosk in the airport arrivals area and they speak English at the kiosk. Once at the railway station, it is a direct train for Bardonecchia costing roughly 8€’s per adult or 1/2 price per child.
