Courmayeur: In the heart of the Alps, at the foot of Mont Blanc, located amongst dramatic scenery on the sunnier south-side of the Mont Blanc is the famous old town of Courmayeur. Courmayeur is the essence of alpine tradition, intimate and sophisticated, it is the birthplace of mountain tourism in Italy and one of the world‘s capitals for mountaineering and skiing.

Gressoney Resort LogoGressoney: Situated within the Monterosa Ski area with a resort altitude of 1600m. There are three valleys in the ski area which is physicaly comparable to the Trois Vallees in France. However in reality they offer a completely different experience, to start with there are 200km of piste and the resorts are relatively undeveloped.

La Thuile resort logoLa Thuile: An unspoilt resort that enjoys a huge ski area linked with La Rosière in France. Skiers on ski holidays in La Thuile can enjoy spectacular scenery, with breathtaking views of the Matterhorn, Monte Rosa and Mont Blanc. There are over 150 km of pistes on offer with a good mix of runs and the opportunity to ski into neighbouring France.

Pila Ski Resort ReviewPila: A little known resort situated at the high altitude of 1800-2000m in the Aosta Valley. The resort is purpose built but in a not unattractive fashion unlike many of the purpose built resorts. The resort centre is car-free, one of the attractions for families. The ancient Roman town of Aosta is only a short 18 minute gondola ride away…

Ortisei logoOrtisei: Skiing in the Gardena Valley originated in the town of Ortisei. The Valley is one of the few remaining areas of Italy where the majority speak Ladin. This has seen Ortisei retain a strong sense of community and offers a great cultural holiday destination too. Ortisei, or St. Ulrich as it is locally known, has a rich history as an important trading town along the Trans-European trade route to the Adriatic Sea.

  1. hey, i appreciate you sharing about skiing in Italy. In Tuscany we own a popular ski-resort called Abetone, where many people go from December through to April to enjoy the slopes once used by Italian snow skiing superstar, Zeno. Come and see what makes Tuscany a amazing spot to ski, and thanks for your blog post!

    I went to Lavigno shortly after christmas this year and was really impressed with what it had to offer. As a mixed group of students the resort offered a range of intermediate skiing which meant we could all ski and board in a big group. The pistes are very wide which means there is always opportunity to go off piste or take an easier route. The main positive for us was that the booze and food was so cheap, $5 for a litre of Smirnoff Vodka etc there resort is also quite lively with a large number of bars and a nightclub which is open until 4am. The only negative is that the resort is split across two valleys so a short bus ride is needed to get from one to the other. We had a brilliant week skiing, as the resort is very high up it has a good record of having great snow! The locals were very friendly and as it is a rather small resort it has retained allot of character.
