Bardonecchia Ski Resort Italy

Nestled on the frontier with France, Bardonecchia ski resort (Bardo to its friends!) has more than just passing interest for Powderhounds. Popular with the folks from Turin, it boasts two contrasting ski areas (Jafferau & Colomion-Melezet) on opposite sides of the valley, 1400m of vertical, reliable snowfall, 100km of piste trails, tree skiing on north-facing terrain, superb transport access plus a sensational value lift pass make it a tasty proposition indeed.

Adding to the Italian skiing feast, Bardonecchia is all just a short drive from the best value ski area in the world, the Via Lattea.

Where is Bardonecchia Italy?

Bardonecchia ski resort is located near the town of the same name in the Piedmont, Italy on the border with France.

Situated on the main Paris-Lyon-Turin-Milan TGV rail line and the Italian end of the Frejus Tunnel on the E70 motorway, Bardonecchia is one of the more convenient ski resort destinations in the entire Alps. The ski resort can be reached in a mere 4.5hr by train from central Paris, and 2.5hr from Milan.

Gateway airports include Paris (CDG), Lyon (LYS), Geneva (GVA), Turin (TRN) & Milan (MXP). Turin is far & away the closest airport, but is only accessible by flights from within Europe & the UK. Train is the recommended mode of travel to Bardonecchia; it is convenient, cheap & will help POW (Protect Our Winters).

Bardonecchia Accommodation

Alternatively one could overnight in nearby Oulx, a short train trip or drive away. Modane is the closest French town to Bardonecchia but the Frejus Tunnel fee and/or infrequent trains, make anything other than a single day trip untenable.

Once in Bardo, getting around is easy on foot or via the free bus system. Regular free buses connect the main ski area bases at Melezet, Campo Smith (Colomion) & Jafferau.

Across the frontier in France, Modane (18min by train) is the base for access to a nest of cheeky ski resorts in the upper Maurienne valley including Valfrejus, Bonneval sur Arc, Aussois, Val Cenis and La Norma.
