Piedmont is 43% mountainous; need we say more? The second largest of Italy's 20 regions, Piedmont has borders with France, Switzerland and the Italian regions of Lombardy, Liguria and the Aosta Valley and is home to the ski resort of Via Lattea among others.
There are around 50 ski areas in Piedmont but many are tiny. This is fine if you are a resident of Turin and are looking for something to do on a Saturday afternoon. But, if you’re looking for a ski holiday as a visitor to the region, there are really only five “resorts” to note.
Alagna Valsesia-Gressoney-Champoluc - 135km of pistes and 26 lifts
Bardonecchia - 100 km of pistes and 21 lifts
Limone Piemonte-Limonetto (Riserva Bianca) - 80 km of pistes and 16 lifts
Mondolè Ski - 130 km of pistes and 23 lifts
Via Lattea - 400 km of slopes and 75 lifts
Clearly Via Lattea is the Daddy in Piedmont but this region would also be perfect for those of you who like to drive and ski and drive and ski.
