Top Resorts for Late Season Snow in Italy

If you are looking for the top resorts for late-season snow in Italy, we have created a list of the best resorts to visit. Whether you are looking in March or April, end-of-season skiing means one thing, high altitude. High-altitude ski resorts tend to have the most reliable snow all season long, so we recommend heading to these ski resorts later in the season.

Champoluc 3,500m

Champoluc is one of the highest ski resorts in Italy, reaching an impressive 3,500m. It is located in the Aosta Valley and has over 200km of pistes.
