News and other resort information
At the foot of the Matterhorn (4478 m) lies Torgnon (1515 m) a sunny village at the heart of Valtournenche which offers, thanks to its 20 km of piste, (with snow cannons), the opportunity for lower level skiers to shine. The ski area boasts an ideal sunny, position protected from the north wind. The pistes are supplied by 4 lifts reaching an altitude of 2.250m and have an hourly capacity of 6500 persons. The ski area is reached via an 8 seater cable car (p/h 2000) and the departure station is in the town and arrives up to Chantorné, at 1868 m.
Torgnon, along with its downhill runs (20 runs of varying difficulty), is also famous for its cross-country skiing tracks (of 3, 5, 7.5, 10 and 20 kilometres, amongst the longest in Aosta Valley) through the forest offering truly enchanting panorama. Appropriately named the sun-kissed village, “pays du soleil”, it is located in an exceptional position which captures, even in mid-winter, the very last rays of sunshine just before night falls. There is also an accessorised Snowpark and Boardercross.
