Snow Shoes

The growing popularity of  snow shoe walking!

Equipped with special snow shoes (known as "ciaspole" in local Piemontese dialect) it is possible to enjoy some of the most spectacular scenery while keeping fit and toning lots of muscles. Suitable for all ages, walkers can go at their own pace.  

There are 3 signposted paths in Bardonecchia that are suitable for snow shoe walking. The starting-points are at the top of the 3 main ski lifts in the 3 skiing areas of the resort (Colomion, Melezet and Jafferau). Given the position of the walks the snow conditions are almost always likely to be good.

Track 1 - Melezet
Leaving from Chesal, the walk (3.5km) is through a beautiful wood with great views over the Valle Stretta.

Track 2 - Colomion
Leaving from Pian del Sole, the walk  (1.5km) is a leisurely one and is suitable for all the family (children must be accompanied at all times).

Track 3 - Jafferau
Leaving from the top of the gondola, the walk (7km) is more demanding but rewards the walker with the most wonderful views.

Please be careful at all times even when on signposted tracks. Remember you are walking in remote mountain areas, never walk alone, leave details of your plans with somebody and please use your good sense at all times. Make sure you return before the ski lifts close at the end of the day.

To organize snow shoe excursions please use mountain professionals to assist you.
