Italy Ski Weekends

If you want to try something different with a ski weekend, why not give Italy a shot? Italy has massive diverse ski areas, quieter slopes and untouched Alpine villages; a nice change from the busy queues in France. Just because it’s further away doesn’t mean it takes any longer to get to the resorts either. Flight times are short and the resorts are only one to two hours from the airports, making it a prime weekend skiing spot. Italy is perfect for those looking for a short break filled with breathtaking scenery, incredible cuisine and, of course, action-packed skiing.

Why Choose Italy

Italy has brilliant skiing areas such as the vast Dolomiti Superski, the magnificent Aosta Valley and the beautiful Monterosa. Not only are the slopes much quieter but they are also a lot more scenic than most other ski areas in the Alps. The mountains are also incredibly snowsure, with lots of slopes above 3,000m and world-class snowmaking facilities. Locals are welcoming and the villages have a traditional charm; prices in Italy are also more respectable and you can look forward to paying a much smaller fee with no cost to quality.

"Italy is an amazing alternative to your normal French skiing holiday; it is brilliant for families and groups alike, with a much more laid-back atmosphere, great skiing and gourmet cuisine."
