Torgnon, Cosy apart with stunning view over Alps! Torgnon, Valle d'Aosta, Italy
Additional Location Information
The town of Torgnon is located in the Valtournenche (the Matterhorn Valley), maybe the best known side valley of the Aosta Valley region; there's also a town called Valtournenche in this side valley, so don't misunderstand!
Torgnon's ski resort includes a cable car, three chair lifts, a baby winter park and a snow park. You will also find a ski and snowboard school. It it not the Aosta Valley's biggest ski resort, but it's the one which got the highest sun exposure of the whole region.
All the alpine and nordic slopes, the baby winter park, the snowpark, resort's bars and restaurants are close one to the other and well linked, so it's easy to look for each other for those who'd like to spend the day doing different activities.
Do not underestimate the fact that the ski area, thanks to its geografical position, its naturally protected from the strong winds which blow when atmosferic disturbances are coming from north in the winter season. It often comes out that when Cervinia's lifts stay closed because of the strong wind, Torgnon's are open without any problem.
The alpine slopes lenght is 23 kilometers and are all equipped with artificial snow machines. The slopes level of difficulty is varied: you can find blue ones for beginners, reds and blacks.
4 nordic slopes allow to exercise in a peaceful atmosphere and surrounded by beautiful panoramas. Loops are 3, 5, 7,5 e 15 km long, with the first one been equipped with artificial snow machines.
Snowshoes (so called "racchette da neve" or "ciaspole", in Italian) tracks are also available.
How to reach Torgnon lifts from the apart
The apartment is car advised.
Lifts are reachable going to town where you can take the cablecar or going directly to the ski area where there's a chair lift waiting for you. In both cases driving distances are narrow (respectively 1,4 and 2 km) and you'll find free and wide parking areas.
People who don't want or cannot drive towards the lifts can use the free on-call skibus service: the stop is 20 meters far from the apartment. It is not available every single day of the season so for infos, calendar and timetable of the 2013/2014 winter season please click the image below.
