Back on the ski slopes: here are some destinations that you should not miss

If you have not yet chosen a destination for your skiing days, here are some recommendations

The ski slopes of Bardonecchia

With the arrival of the first snow, several ski resorts resume their activities and get ready to welcome the many lovers of the mountains and winter sports. Turin and its surroundings offer a wide choice of destinations for ski-lovers, so, if you are short of ideas or do not want to ski always in the same places, we propose a short selection of destinations based on the services offered.

Each facility can of course be used by anyone, but if you are a beginner it could be interesting to visit Clavière, which offers affordable prices to invite all those who want to learn to ski.
But if you are familiar with slopes, curves and more challenging routes, why not direct your choice on Pila? The ski routes here are a bit more difficult, but also challenging. Moreover, just a 20-minute drive away, you can take the opportunity to visit the Marché Vert Noël, one of the most characteristic Christmas markets in Italy, which every year illuminates and warms up the archaeological site of the Roman Theatre in Aosta.

Bardonecchia is the most frequented place by the inhabitants of Turin, the comfort of its facilities is really surprising and explains why so many people choose it. With about 100 km of slopes, the area is equipped to transport 30 thousand people per hour with its 22 lifts. A significant number and justified by the fact that it is a destination easily reachable by means of transport (from the center there is a free shuttle that in five minutes leads to Jafferau), which offers medium difficulty slopes and special rates for all university students.

Obviously, when we talk about mountains, we are also talking about the landscape. Every peak offers wonderful views, but if you want something different you should go to Rucas, a town located in the mountains of Bagnolo Piemonte. Here, you will find more than a merely natural landscape: you will enjoy an overview of the Po Valley and Turin, which is particularly impressive at sunset and with the sparkling lights of the city. Rucas’ facility is ideal for beginners.
Lastly, we recommend Alagna Valsesia, at the foot of Monte Rosa, in the province of Vercelli, which offers intermediate difficult ski routes and a wild landscape.
