Skiing In Italy

 

Italy has always been a consideration for those interested in experiencing the Alps for less. Having said that, it is still considered one of the top European skiing countries today, and is a magnificent place to take a skiing vacation. 

 

There is a certain romance about Italy that makes it the number one choice for so many skiers each year, and it is easy to see the attraction with the place. From its northern snow-tipped peaks, you can also venture towards the cultural hotbeds of Rome and Turin, and experience Italy as it is intended, as well as its amazing ski slopes.

 

One of Italy’s smallest resorts, tucked up high, near Canazei in the North, is Alba. Based on a tiny village, the Alba resort is the truest form of skiing escapism, with amazing off piste skiing to be had. For the keen skier, this would make for an excellent day trip, or an excellent weekend away whilst staying at a bigger resort, and although it has only 5 lifts, it is a real Italian treasure, and something not to be missed if you like peaceful surroundings whilst you ski. On top of that, if you enjoy cross country skiing, Alba also offers a number of extensive trails for you to pursue, ensuring that you are likely to have a great time, whatever you skiing preferences and ability. 

 

If you are looking for something bigger, why not consider Passo Tonale, Italy’s highest resort. Passo Tonale is an ideal family holiday destination, focusing on beginners and intermediate people, and provides a friendly atmosphere that some of the larger holiday resorts lack. 

 

 

Passo Tonale is also home to a top ski school, employing some of the most talented ski instructors in the region. In addition, the staff takes pride in the slope conditions that are frequently repaired. From the top of Passo Tonale , you will see a wonderful panoramic view of the entire area, which is really breathtaking, and it is well known that skiers spend a lot of time simply analyzing the scenery. If you are looking for a busier and more down-to-earth ski resort, Passo Tonale is a good holiday resort. 

 

Selva Gardena is one of the largest resorts in Italy. If you are looking for beautiful scenery and excellent, continuous snow cover, you could do a great deal worse than here. Selva Gardena is also a great value holiday destination, and its child-friendly nature makes it another great holiday destination for families. 

 

Italy has a diverse range of ski resorts to cater for all different tastes and abilities. In general you will find all the resorts welcoming and friendly, not to mention the amazing hospitality you will experience in some of their restaurants and bars. 

 


If you are looking for a good value for money trip, and you enjoy skiing, the North of Italy is ideal for you, and can provide any skier with an adequate challenge of their abilities. Additionally, with some of the best skiing instructors in the world, Italy is one of the best places in Europe to enjoy skiing without paying an absolute fortune. Italy truly is a great skiing location for anyone looking to experience the Alps in all their glory, amidst the wealth and depth of culture and history right around the corner.
