Outstanding but definitely outward bound for skiing. Totally different. Not if you want ski-in-ski-out. Getting the tiny 4x4 to shuttle us up from the rented 8 seater with the bags set the scene. Beautiful spacious chalet rooms, restaurant one hundred metres away - but mind your step at night in the snow. Totally out of the way. Seems like a commune rather than a business and the people - mostly women - were lovely. English was a problem (the check in was a hoot), although Huggie Bear the boss man who was there day two who spoke good English. We went to ski, we got the snow, and we had to use snow chains four out of the seven days - on and off, twice a day. One day full blizzard conditions on the slopes. Not for the feint hearted. Bardonecchia is OK for a day's skiing - mostly for Torino week-enders - although we only tried one side of the road. Sestriere and Claviere is bigger - although the Italian signage is confusing. Fantastic snow so fantastic holiday, but more an adventure than a skiing trip. I loved the place - but would I go back? Maybe in two years time, not next year - when I would prefer to ski-in-ski-out for a break.
