The 5 Best Ski Resorts in Italy

Luca Pinelli

Italy is generally best-known for seaside, cultural sites, and great food. Nonetheless, it would be a grave omission to leave out all the wonderful mountains which host every year thousands of skiers, both from within the country and from beyond the national borders. We’ve put together a list of 5 of the best ski resorts in Italy to convince any undecided visitor that Italy is definitely a skiable country!

View over Breuil-Cervinia


Located in one of the smallest regions in Italy, Aosta Valley, Breuil-Cervinia is a place which combines technology and nature in order to create an environment where tourists can enjoy the seclusion of the mountains whilst remaining connected to the rest of the world. The heights vary, ranging from 1,524 to 4,478 metres, thus offering different altitudes and several kinds of slopes to all skiers and snowboarders. With a mini club for kids, even families will be able to enjoy a snowy holiday in Breuil-Cervinia!


Passo del Tonale

Passo del Tonale

Linking Valcamonica to Val del Sole, Passo del Tonale is one of the most beloved wintry destinations in northern Italy. It is located on the border between Lombardy and Trentino, at a height which varies from 1,883 to 3,100 metres. It embraces mostly intermediate slopes, but more challenging ones do not lack. A daily ski pass costs €40 for adults and the season runs from October to February. There are bars and cafés near some of the busiest runs, so that skiers and families can have a quick bite together before heading off to carve. There is also a local spa for those who are up for a special treat or for those who do not ski but enjoy a holiday in the hills.

Kronplatz / Plan de Corones

Situated in South Tyrol, this enchanting place is one of the most visited ski resorts in northern Italy. Kronplatz – generally known by the name of Plan de Corones in Italy – is both the name of a single ski resort and the name of the surrounding area, which embraces Speikboden and Klausberg too. The former is a family-friendly environment with all sorts of slopes, from those for beginners to those for advanced skiers. The latter is the highest of the three ski resorts and offers breath-taking views of the valley as well as some more challenging runs.



Located in the heart of the Alps, Livigno is one of the best-known destinations in Lombardy. The territory makes it possible to enjoy the area over the summer and winter alike, as the possible activities are numerous and flexible. With over 20 ski lifts in the area, Livigno will bewilder and spoil every skier. Snow generally falls copiously every year, especially from the end of November to the start of April, thus proving to be a ski and snowboard paradise for all those who are fond of these activities.
