Tuscany is not exactly a skiing destination however if you happen to be in Florence in the winter, a day or an entire weekend at Abetone could be a great alternative to sightseeing. The resort is situated in Pistoia province, less than a two-hour drive from Florence. While skiing you can marvel at the beauty of the Apennine mountains and enjoy 50 km of trails ranging from blue to red. There is also a snow park for snowboarders to enjoy the twists and jumps.
While skiing in the Apennines may not be as exciting as in the Alps, this will be compensated by excellent apres ski. Try pasta, polenta, different pastries, and soups. Your skiing weekend may turn into a gastronomic adventure that often can't be avoided while in Tuscany.
