Ski holidays in Italy

A stay in Italy is all about the perfect balance between serious skiing, deliciously lazy dolce far niente and some of the best food you’ll ever eat. With resorts over the sunny Southern Alps and dramatic Dolomites, a famously laid back vibe on and off the slopes and enticingly lower prices than France, Switzerland and Austria, it’s no surprise that anyone who’s skied here is more than likely to return.

Most popular ski resorts in Italy

Not simply the best known resort in Italy, exclusive Cortina is one of the top ski destinations in the world, making it a definite feature on the ski bucket list. A common factor makes Cortina and nearby Selva, Madonna di Campiglio, Arabba and the Fassa Valley some of Italy’s top places to ski - the majestic Dolomiti Superski is the biggest (at 1,200km) area in the country – and has some of the most jaw-dropping scenery you’ll ever see.

Piedmont houses another of Italy’s leading ski areas – the 400km Milky Way, where in turn you’ll find some of the country’s leading resorts – laid back Claviere, après favourite Sauze d’Oulx and former Olympic town Sestriere.

The snow sure reputation of Cervinia, where you can ski with views of the Matterhorn and Livigno whose duty free status attracts crowds of shopaholics and party lovers every year, make these resorts winners when it comes to amazing snow. Passo Tonale is also snow sure thanks to the presence of the Presena glacier which you can usually ski throughout the year.

Alongside Cervinia in the Aosta Valley is Gressoney, much loved for its authentic, unspoilt setting in Monterosa ski (recently voted “Best Upcoming Resort” in the World Snow Awards). Courmayeur is another popular Aosta resort - good all round and positioned on the other side of Mont Blanc from French alpine legend Chamonix.

The Italians make best food in the world and the mouth-watering menus you’ll find in every Italian resort are a huge attraction of ski holidays here. If we had to pick a foodie favourite, Alta Badia where you’ll find Corvara and La Villa would probably win hands down - there are numerous highly acclaimed restaurants in the area, including a good few Michelin stars and best of all, you won’t be forking out a fortune to enjoy it.
