Italy

With an abundance of resorts blessed with spectacular scenery, good food and a laid-back atmosphere, you are spoilt for choice when it comes to skiing in Italy.

If you are looking for a relaxing winter break then Italy is the destination for you. Renowned for its laid-back ambiance, skiing in Italy places as much emphasis on long lunches and soaking up the sun as it does on actual skiing. Spread along the full length of the Italian border, from Sauze d’Oulx in the west to the Dolomites in the east, Italian resorts vary as widely in their characteristics as they do in their location. Whether you are looking for quaint villages, fashionable towns or remote ski stations, the choice is yours.

Home to more than 300 resorts, Italy boasts a number of vast ski areas, the most famous being the Dolomites. This impressive mountain range in the northeast of the Italian Alps comprises a number of awe-inspiring peaks, eighteen of which rise to more than 3,050 metres, with over 5,000 vertical feet of skiable terrain, countless miles of backcountry trails and almost 800-miles of groomed cross-country tracks. The Dolomites is also home to the Sella Ronda - a panoramic circular network of lifts and pistes around the Gruppo del Sella, a majestic limestone massif, taking in a host of ski regions including Val Gardena and Alta Badia. One of the most well-known resorts in the Dolomites is Cortina d’Ampezzo, an ancient mountain town surrounded by soaring cathedrals with elegant boutiques, gourmet restaurants, intimate wine bars and softly-lit nightclubs.

High altitude slopes crossing countries makes an exciting skiing proposition.

With its high altitude and well groomed slopes, another popular resort is Cervinia, which is linked across the Swiss border with Zermatt. If you’re looking for a traditional ski region with uncrowded pistes then neighbouring Monterosa is one to consider. One of Italy’s best-kept secrets, it has three main resort villages spread across three adjacent valleys and is ideal for family ski holidays,

Stretching across Sauze d’Oulx, Sestriere and Claviere in Italy, and over the border to Montgenèvre in France is the lift-linked Via Lattea area, also known as the Milky Way. Located in the Province of Turin, the area encompasses six ski resorts of differing size and atmosphere with a scenic array of slopes and a number of towns and villages which are home to an abundance of luxury hotels and chalets.
