Skiing in Italy

Skiing in Italy

If you are looking for a cheap skiing holiday but still want to go to one of the main ski countries then Italy is the place to head.  There are a wide variety of ski resorts to choose from and the skiing in Italy offers slopes particularly suited to beginners and intermediates.  Lift systems tend to be modern and fast, grooming fantastic and most resorts have excellent snowmaking facilities.  Italy is also home to the stunning Dolomites and a skiing holiday set against the back-drop of these world-famous mountains just has to be experienced.

Skiing in Italy – Chic Ski Resorts

If you want to enjoy skiing alongside the chic and stylish then head for Cortina, Madonna di Campiglio or Courmayeur. The skiing in these Italian resorts tends to be busier at the weekend when the Italians descend for a few days of skiing, eating and drinking. However, during the week, you should find the slopes relatively quiet.

Family Skiing in Italy

Italy is an excellent destination if you are planning to take your family skiing.  If you are looking for an all-inclusive package and have children that need looking after then Club Med Cervinia comes highly recommended from our clients. For younger children we have fantastic chalet holidays in Val Gardena run by the UK’s top family specialist and they’ll arrange everything you need to ensure you and your children have a wonderful holiday. Call us on the number above for more information about these holidays. 

If you are looking to head somewhere different and your children are intermediates, then why not try Madonna di Campiglio? Situated in the stunning Dolomites,  the resort offers great snow-sure skiing for intermediates and is popular with the chic Italians.

Weekend Skiing in Italy

Courmayeur is the best place to head for a weekend skiing in Italy. The resort is easily accessible from either Geneva (via the Mont Blanc Tunnel) or from Turin or Milan.  There is some great off-piste available (with a guide) and the après-ski choices are endless.

Snow-sure Skiing in Italy

Cervinia is one of the highest ski resorts in the Alps and is lift linked with Zermatt. The resort has extensive snowmaking and the skiing is virtually guaranteed from December until April . Madonna di Campiglio also has a great snow-record.

Off-piste Skiing in Italy

If you are planning to go ski off-piste in Italy then you should be equipped with avalanche safety equipment and preferably be with a guide.  In the Piedmonte region (Sestriere and Sauze d’Oulx)  there is a law making it mandatory to carry an avalanche transceiver, a shovel  and a probe.  There is good off-piste skiing to be found in Courmayeur but once again it is advised that you book a guide.

Skiing in Italy – Mountain Restaurants

If you are skiing in Italy then you will find that most mountain restaurants are great value and offers great pasta and hot chocolates like nowhere else.  However, you may find that you have to queue up to pay for your lunch in one queue before being able to join the actual queue for the food. Also, the toilets are sometimes very basic.

Beginners Skiing in Italy

The best ski resorts in Italy to learn to ski are Cervinia and Cortina. Madonna also offers good terrain.

Intermediate Skiing in Italy

Our featured resorts of CortinaMadonna di Campiglio or Courmayeur  all offer great intermediate skiing.  Sauze d’Oulx, Sestriere, and Val Gardena are also great choices.  For more information on these resorts please go to our sister site ifyouski.com or call us on the number above.
