Skiing in Italy

Italian ski holidays are relaxed, informal, hedonistic, fun – and just a little bit crazy. Of course, the Italians take their skiing seriously, but then they take their lunches, dinners, aperitivi and digestivi just as seriously too. Thus, Italy ski holidays will always be as much about good food and drink, as it is about skiing and snowboarding.

Many Italians who are not skiers or boarders enjoy coming to the mountains in winter for the sunshine, the scenery and the après ski. In fact, in Italian ski resorts such as Cortina d’Ampezzo, non-skiers are actually in the majority. However, this does not mean that Italy is not a good choice for the committed skier. On the contrary, there’s brilliant skiing in Italy for all types of skier, who will enjoy quieter pistes thanks to the non-skiers in town.

Italian ski resorts are a brilliant choice for families, with young children positively welcomed in ski hotels and restaurants. Grown-ups will not be disappointed by the après ski activity, which begins in the middle of the afternoon and continues well into the small hours.

There’s some great ski resorts in Italy including the incredible Dolomites ski area with 1,200 km of ski slopes and the fantastic Sella Ronda circuit. There’s also the highest ski resort in Italy, Cervinia, located in the wonderful Aosta Valley ski area. Whatever you are looking for, our experts are here to help with your ski holiday.
