With pretty much guaranteed snow in February (and 95% artificial snow cover to top things up) Madonna di Campiglio is the perfect location for a ski holiday during February half term.
Although it gets busier during school holidays, Madonna still tends to be quiet in comparison to the resorts in France and Italy (where most Brits ski at half term). To top it off, the Italians don’t have a half term holiday so you shouldn’t have to worry about lift queues and crowded slopes. This makes spending half term week in Madonna perfect for families after some quality time together, not to mention any teachers looking for a bit of an escape on this precious week of freedom!
There are 12 ski schools in the resort offering ski, snowboard and cross country ski lessons to both beginners and improvers. All do group lessons or you can book a private lesson with Sci 5 Laghi and Sci Rainalter if you want to fast-track your progression. Snowboarding is really popular here, so it’s not surprising there are two specialist boarding schools, Professional Snowboarding and Zebra. Most classes are taken by bus to nursery slopes away from the busier skiing areas and there’s a children’s area in the village by the Belvedere practise run. In terms of things to do off the skis, sledding is a great way to blow off some steam, husky rides make a fantastic treat and there’s also an ice rink.
Self- catering apartments are great if you want to save money cooking for yourself or explore local restaurants (we’d definitely recommend the latter – the food is incredible here!). If you’re travelling with young children, many hotels have a kids club, crèche or supervised children’s activities – get in touch with our ski specialists to find out more.
