The 5 Best Ski Resorts In Piedmont

Barbara Boda

Piedmont means “at the foot of the mountains” – it is ruled by mountains, slopes and valleys that take up a third of its territory, providing a great destination for the lovers of winter sports. The ski resorts became relatively famous in 2006, when the Winter Olympic Games were organized in Turin, in the main city of the region. Here are the best ski centers in Piemont – let’s get on your skis and start!

Val de Susa

La Val di Susa

Also known as “the Milky Way,” this network of ski slopes provides a hundreds of kilometers long ski lane system with varying difficulty. Track these pistes on a map and you soon realize that they are a part of a giant cobweb that connects several towns and villages (like Sestriere, Sauze d’Oulx, Cesana, Bardonecchia, San Sicario and Claviere). La Val di Susa in numbers: 120 ski lifts, 600 km of slopes, 1000 “cannons” to provide snow (as if there wasn’t enough), 15 schools with 500 ski instructors. Here all and sundry can find a place fitting his or her taste: from beginner to competitive, snowboarders and alpine ski or cross-country ski lovers.

Limone Piemonte

Limone Piemonte

Open from early December until late April and between 1000-2000 meters, Limone Piemonte has a snow cover that is generally reliable. This resort is especially suitable for intermediate skiers, with 23 red pistes on board. Having four airports in the vicinity (a maximum of two hours of driving), you can quickly get to the exciting slopes! A ski center since 1897, the town hosted a competition in 1907 that started the official ski history in the town’s life which allowed them to celebrate the centennial in 2007. The resort hosts many international contests.Address: Limone Piemonte Italy phone +39 0171 926254
