Skiing in Italy: Best Italian Ski Resorts

Italy is known for its stunning rolling fields of growing grapes, delicious food and wine, and romantic energy. However, in the northern part of Italy, bordering France, Austria, and Switzerland, you’ll find a skiing paradise.

For fans of the slopes, Skiing in Italy has been a favorite winter destination. It not only offers some of the best winter sports activities on the planet but also places that are rich with culture and history. So let me break it all down for you and give you the best Italian ski resorts around.

Skiing in Italy Season

You can go skiing in Italy almost year round, but the main season is December – April. If you want to go later in the season, the Dolomites are your best bet as some ski resorts are open until May. And there are even a few summer ski resorts in Italy: Cervinia and Passo Stelvio. So grab your ski gear and and winter clothes and hit the slopes!

World Famous Dolomites Skiing

As one of the largest ski regions in the world, the Dolomites cater to every type of skier. With 12 ski resorts, 450 cable cars, 50 villages, 30 snow parks, and over 745 miles of Grade A ski slopes, it’s hard not to see why Dolomites Skiing is some of the best. For more history on the Dolomites, read this article!

On top of the top-notch facilities, all you need is one ski pass to access every ski resort in the Dolomites. Let me make your experience here even better and break it down even more for you.

Over 50 miles of slopes ranging from beginner to expert, you’ll find there is little to be desired when staying here for your Dolomites Skiing Holiday. You can hit your stride on one of the 65 available slopes or you can take a detour.

With several winter activities, restaurants, and wellness facilities to choose from it can be hard to get all the highlights. But no need to fear! For there are two tours of the town offered that can help you get familiarized while giving you activity ideas.

The alternative to the lively Cortina, Civetta is Dolomites’ best kept secret. While quiet and beautiful, the ski resort is surrounded by the regions most imposing peaks but maintains ski run variety.

Italian Alps Skiing

Technically, the Dolomites are in the Italian Alps. However, the locals see them as two different sections of this ski paradise. The Italian Alps are much closer to Milan, Torino, and the other bordering countries. Not many visitors recognize the beauty in the northwestern section of the mountains so the vibe tends to be a lot more tranquil as well as less populated. It is still a lively area filled with activities and shops and, of course, skiing. Let’s look at the different resorts.

Wedged between France and Switzerland is the little region of Aosta Valley that is made up of the regions below. This isn’t a well known area as a whole, however it takes the cake for beauty. There are terraces around the region dedicated to admiring the beauty of the glaciers surrounding.

There are plenty of ski slopes for everyone from beginner to expert. However, this is the region for the lovers. The romance electrifies the air as you walk down the cobblestone streets of town. Honeymoons are a hot item in Aosta.

The Winter Wonderland of Livigno

This particular area is geared more toward the intermediate skiers since most of their slopes are in that experience range. With that being said, there are slopes for beginners and experts, just not as many. After a few hours of free riding through the fun Livigno, cruise through the towns for some duty free shopping or relax at one of the many spas around the resort. This tucked away ski area by Switzerland is a can’t miss if you are looking for a kid-free ski paradise.

Madesimo: Friendly and Traditional

While a relatively small resort, Madesimo is famous for its 2 mile “Canalone” black run descent. While there are slopes for beginners, this area is made more for the experts and intermediates. Families are welcome though, as there is a ski school meant for children. On top of all that, the après-ski scene is rich with micro-breweries and even breweries from the 1820s. This is a can’t miss.
