North of Torino and south of Breuil-Cervinia, the Torgnon ski area has 12 pistes totaling 26km that are served by 6 lifts with a maximum descent of 750m. Located down valley to the south of Breuil-Cervinia, the level of piste difficulty ranges from 15% beginner to 60% intermediate to 25% advanced. The best Torgnon snowboarding is during the months of January and February.

The Torgnon ski area is part of the Cervino Ski Paradise. The Cervino Ski Paradise consists of three bus-interconnected ski areas (Breuil-Cervinia Valtournenche, Chamois and Torgnon) that share a common ski pass.

For the freestyle snowboarders in your crew, the Torgnon ski are has one terrain park to session called the Snow Park.

To reach the snowboarding in Torgnon by air, the two nearest airports are Turin Caselle (TRN) and Milan Malpensa (MXP). The Turin airport is served by European airlines, and the Milan Malpensa airport is served by both European and major international airlines. While a rental car is fast and convenient with a sense of independence for getting to the ski resort, it can be a huge source of stress with complex road network navigation, locating the expensive resort overnight parking, and challenges with narrow roads during poor winter weather. But, unlike the easy public train and bus options for Swiss and Austria ski resorts, the public transport options out of Milan and Turin are very complex with difficult connections from multiple non-integrated transportation companies. While driving can be a couple hours, the public transportation options stretch into 4-7 hours of additional travel.

From Milan Malpensa airport, the only train option is the Malpensa Express leading into downtown Milano Centrale (45 minute ride every 30 minutes). From Milano Centrale, take the train to Chivasso (may require a connection) where you will change trains leading up into Valle d'Aosta. The main train stops in Valle d'Aosta for public buses up to ski resorts provided by Arriva Savada ( include Chatillon which leads up to Torgnon, Chamois and Breuil-Cervinia). So, in all, it could take five trains plus a final bus. Alternately, if your time works right, there is bus service that skips the trains directly to the final train station in Chatillon from Arriva Savada (, which runs three times a day during winter months.

From Turin Caselle airport, there is a metro train from the airport leading into downtown Turin (Madonna di Campagna). Unfortunately, the train station needed for Valle d'Aosta destinations requires a taxi or ride from Madonna di Campagna to the Torino Porta Susa or Porta Nuova train stations. Alternately, it is possible to take a bus from the airport direct to the train station. Then, there is a train to Ivrea where you'll connect for the train into Valle d'Aosta. The main train stops in Valle d'Aosta for buses up to ski resorts include Chatillon for Torgnon, Chamois and Breuil-Cervinia. So, in all, it could take a minimum of a bus, then two trains and a final bus. As a final option, there is a direct bus from the airport to Aosta train station Arriva Savada (, which runs three times a day during winter months. From Aosta, you can take a regular train back down the valley to the aforementioned train station to catch a bus up to the ski resorts.

Overall, Torgnon is the 49th most popular snowboard & freeride destination of all 57 snowboarding resorts in Italy.
