Bardonecchia, the splendour of the Alps
Bardonecchia, a ski resort in the middle of the wonderful Olympic mountains, has many panoramic viewpoints from where you can admire the natural beauty of the Alps. Whether you are downhill skiing, walking with snow shoes or simply using the ski lifts you can easily reach a wide range of beauty spots with the most amazing views over the whole of Bardonecchia.
The Panoramic Gondola Ride
Take the opportunity to view the beautiful scenery as you ride in the gondola to 2000 metres on the Jafferau mountain. As you reach the top you will get a wonderful view over the ski resort of Bardonecchia before setting off with snow shoes along a signposted path to enjoy even more breathtaking views.
Once you get to the top of the gondola lift you will find signs for the Decouville path. With snowshoes on your feet you can walk along the old track that was once used to transport material for the construction of a dam. The starting point for this walk is the ‘Bacini’ and the path takes you as far as the village of Rochemolles which you can see below you nestling under the shadow of the imposing Alps
