The Italian Alps are much beloved by skiers, from the most accomplished and competitive right down to the families and children who enjoy the wonderful Italian hospitality almost as much as the sport.

Skiing in italy ski holiday

Italy boasts some outstanding mountain scenery and the lower reaches of its snow-capped mountains in The Alps and The Dolomites provide fabulous opportunities for walking, while this has long been a region popular for skiing and snowboarding vacations.

In the Aosta Valley, modern ski-lifts take you to very high altitudes with truly  spectacular views, and  downhill pistes that are always practicable and suitable for experts and beginners alike.  The Valley also has excellent cross-country skiing circuits,  ice-skating rinks and plenty of apres-ski for all ages.

Italy has gained a totally justified reputation in recent years as a good value ski destination with excellent lift systems and gourmet mountain dining, all of which  creates a passionate and lively ski atmosphere. Italian resorts cater perfectly for intermediate skiers who enjoy red and blue runs and, if you head to the 400km ski area of the Milky Way, you can have the distinction of skiing two countries in a single day.
