Skiing in Italy

Introduction

Italy is often not the country that comes to mind when you think about a winter destination, yet this country has so many fantastic opportunities. You can choose to stay in Ortisei, San Cristina or Selva. We also offer the ski resort of Val di Fassa with the charming villages of Canazei and Campitello. Something that is consistent throughout all Italian resorts is the hospitality! Val Gardena and Val di Fassa are part of the Dolomiti Superski area, which consists of 1220km of slopes. The famous Sella Rond is in Dolomiti Superski ski area. It is a circular ski route that will lead you around the impressive Sella massif.

Another area, Arabba Marmolada offers a wide range of possibilities. There are routes for advanced skiers as well as easier slopes for children and beginners.

The Italian Alps are a wonderful place to spend your winter holiday as there is usually lots of sun and high altitudes (making it more snow-sure)!
