Winter sports in Italy

Going on a ski holiday in Italy means enjoying lots of sun, snow and delicious food.

Come to Italy for an unforgettable ski holiday in the Dolomites. This beautiful mountain range is a ski area where you’re secured of both sun and snow due to its location in the south of the Alps. The sun shines 300 days a year and there usually is a whole lot of snow. On days with lesser snow the many snow cannons will enable you to enjoy skiing. Italians are very good at preparing tracks and making artificial snow.

The fact that they are well known for their cuisine, is a big plus. On the tracks and in the villages you can enjoy delicious food at affordable prices. A ski holiday in Italy is surprisingly affordable anyway. Your ideal ski holiday destination in Italy is also closer than you may think. The ski area of Andalo-Paganella is situated only two hours from bigger Italian cities like Verona.
