Italy is blessed with its ideal geographical location. Despite its warm climate during wintertime, the country offers excellent spots for skiing and snowboarding. Northern Italian ski resorts are known for their reasonable prices, cheerful family-friendly atmosphere and delicious traditional food.
If you are going to explore the Italian Alps, go to Courmayeur or the Breuil-Cervinia resort, which can both be found in the Aosta Valley region. Courmayeur is suitable for confident intermediate skiers, but some slopes can be very challenging. If you are not interested in hardcore skiing, you can take a ride on a cable car and enjoy the fantastic and spectacular views from the highest mountain in the Alps—Mont Blanc. The Breuil-Cervinia resort is definitely recommended for advanced riders.
If you are planning to explore the Dolomites, you can try Cortina d'Ampezzo town, Madonna di Campiglio village and Selva di Val Gardena municipality in northern Italy. Besides skiing, you can enjoy the best Italian restaurants, nightclubs and other winter activities such as sledging and ice-climbing.
Ski season is roughly late November to late April. The season varies, depending on snowfall. If you're a big fan of the mountains, snow, and skiing, Italy is a must for your winter bucket list.
