Overview

Bardonecchia, with over 100 km of slopes and 23 ski lifts, is made up two ski areas. On one side there's the area that includes Colomion, Les Arnauds and Melezet, which is characteristized by wide slopes that cut through the forest. A thick and artistic spider web of slopes connects Campo Smith (1330 m) in the center of town to the vast plateaus of Vallon Cros, which at 2400 m of altitude is above the treeline. Five minutes from downtown, connected via a free skibus, is the Jafferau resort (highest point 2800 m). Here most of the slopes are out of the forest which allows for an unparalleled view of the surrounding mountains and infinite possibilities of off trail itineraries in the spring. Jafferau is famous for having hosted all of the Turin 2006 Winter Olympic snowboarding events at the Melezet snowpark. Bardonecchia is easy to reach by car or by train, thanks to the train station located just a few hundred meters from the slopes. There's something for everyone and the fact that it's a real mountain town makes it a perfect destination for a fun and relaxing family vacation filled with sports, nature and good food.

More Info

The best way of getting around Torino is either by walking, which many people seem to favor, or via the public transport, which has been enhanced in terms of lines and frequency for the Olympic event. All Olympic venues have disability access and can be reached either by train, car or the Olympic transport services. For security reasons, some sections of mountain roads are closed to the traffic during the Games and it is not possible to reach the competition venues by private car. Special trains will be available every half an hour! Otherwise, if you decide to come by car, book your parking space in the park&ride car parks wherever possible. Info: 800 019152 or +39 011 5764574. It is not possible to reach the competition venues by private car: all cars must be left at the park&ride terminals linked to the public transport network.
