Bardonecchia has an excellent choice of blue and red runs and a reliable ski bus service linking the various areas. We were very impressed by the overall management of the resort and catering facilities close to the pistes were also good. When the Turin crowd arrived at the weekend, we made for the more demanding slopes at Jaffereau, which were much quieter. This is an excellent budget resort. Bardonecchia has not much to offer itself, besides skiing. It keeps you busy for some time.

Awesome, great people, great skiing, although look out for some of the blue slopes being more like reds in other European resorts. The Olympic run is a must do- although the top is incredibly steep. The main beginner slopes are on the lower slopes of Campo Smith and Melezet which are fully lift linked. Snow cannons ensure good snow cover both at the beginning and end of the season. These areas have a good variety of terrain ranging from wide open clearings to tree-lined forest trails and cruisers will find plenty to enjoy on the long, wide motorway runs. Our group had a great time, the instruction was spot on and we'll be back. Food wasn't as good as we hoped , but the metre of fresh powder

The skiing is spread over three areas - Melezet, Jafferau and Campo Smith, the main area where the base facilities are located. The resort itself is at 1312m with the skiing extending up to 2750m at the top of Jafferau and a total of 140km of pistes, the majority of which are intermediate. The main beginner slopes are on the lower slopes of Campo Smith and Melezet which are fully lift linked. Snow cannons ensure good snow cover both at the beginning and end of the season. These areas have a good variety of terrain ranging from wide open clearings to tree-lined forest trails and cruisers will find plenty to enjoy on the long, wide motorway runs. The Jafferau area is also included on the lift

Ik ben hier vaak geweest met mijn au-pairfamilie. Bardonecchia is natuurlijk bekend van de Winterspelen 2006. Doorgaans komen er veel Italianen uit Turijn en over het algemeen is het er rustig, in de weekends vaak wat drukker. Gemiddelde toerist is dus Italiaans en anders vaak Engels. In de omgeving zijn mooie wandelingen te maken en voor kinderen is er veel vertier: mooie speeltuin en veel outdoor-activiteiten (soms zelfs gratis)! Bardonecchia zelf vind ik redelijk ongezellig..Niets bijzonders. Wel goed bereikbaar: per auto en per trein. Het oude gedeelte van het centrum (centro storico) is wel leuk, maar erg klein. Skieën in Bardonecchia kan prima, redelijk wat variatie en relatief rustig
