Best for beginners: Passo Tonale
Good value and good snow tick two of the boxes but the gentle, calm, open slopes construct a brilliant environment to learn to ski. And because they are sheltered and gentle they are free from more advanced skiers, meaning no confidence sapping whizzing past.
30 lifts service 100 km of piste, up to a summit of 3,015 m. A resort loved by beginners and local Italians alike. Six day lift pass €244.
Best for Intermediates: Corvara
If confidence boosting, well groomed red runs are your thing then Corvara could be the resort for you. Positioned nicely to access both the Alta Badia ski area and the Sella Ronda circuit.
There are 433 km of piste to explore with 179 lifts to whisk you around.
A six day lift pass is €294. Try staying at the Garni Bracun, a three-star traditional Alpine hotel run by a family from just £679 per person. Or from £1,499 per person check into the five star Hotel Sassongher
Best for Experts: Alagna
A tiny village in the middle of the huge Monterosa ski area. Off piste is really what Alagna is famous for, it's certainly not a party town, nor is it a place for beginners. It's all about the very challenging off piste. The resort is at an altitude of 1,200 m but the slopes stretch up to 3,275 m. 45 lifts ferry you about the 73 km of piste. And a six day lift pass is €222.
Best for Families: Champoluc
A pretty, laid back Italian mountain village with very little traffic and a gentle apres ski scene. A modern gondala whisks skiers up to Crest where the beginner slopes are situated. Plus access to the 200km Monterosa ski area makes Champoluc perfect for families who want to get out on the slopes.
45 lifts for 73 km of piste. slopes from 1,200 m to 3,275 m. Resort 1, 570 m. Six day lift pass €222
If money isn’t a limiting factor why not stay at Camp Zero, a five-star bleeding edge resort built with sustainability and protecting nature in mind, from £1,189 per person. Or if ski-in, ski-out is more your thing why not try the Chalet Hotel De Champoluc from on £699 per person.
Italians tends to live life at a more leisurely pace. The same can be said for their attitude to skiing. That's not to say things aren't done properly, they are; the relaxed attitude and important focus on meal time actually make Italy one of the most fun places to ski in Europe.
Combine that with low prices and family friendly resorts and you could have found your perfect ski resort. Italy has some huge skiing areas. The Dolomites have huge skiing areas including a famous circular network of lifts and pistes around the limestone outcrop Sella Ronda. Italy is also home to two other large ski areas, namely the Milky Way and Monte Rosa. And some gems in the Alps just over the Swiss border like Livigno.
Best for Snow Reliability: Livigno
Nestled just over the Swiss border, Livigno is a hidden gem. The tax free town sits in the valley floor with big ski areas at either side. the summit is 3,000m so snow is generally guaranteed from December through to April. Plus prices are fairly reasonable, which is always a bonus. The pistes are excellent for beginners and intermediates, there are a few blacks but maybe this isn’t the resort for an advanced skier who wants to be really challenged. The town lies in the valley surrounded by skiing at either side and there is a free ski bus to run you around all day and most of the night.
Where to stay? For four-star value choose the Hotel Amerikan, which is modern recently refurbished hotel opposite the Amerikan lift. And from £849 per person is fairly reasonable. If you’re seeking a bit more comfort then the Hotel Lac Salin (almost five-star) is very luxurious. After skiing back to the hotel you can relax in the indoor pool or unwind in the wellness centre, prices from £1,089 per person.
Whatever you are looking for from a skiing holiday Italy can fit the bill. If the Dolomites are you chosen destination be careful to check on snowfall, however the snow cannons usually fill in the gaps. Further north in the Alps is where to head if guaranteed snowfall and fresh powder is your thing. Italy, a fabulously relaxed skiing destination
