Ski resorts in Italy
Our ski specialists have put together these resort guides to give you an insider view of our ski resorts in Italy.
Known as the Pearl of the Dolomites, Madonna di Campiglio, is one of Italy's premier ski resorts. Lesser known to British skiers, the village is exclusive yet unpretentious and sits at an altitude of 1550 metres.
With access to the expansive Sella Ronda network of varied pistes and amidst spectacular Dolomite scenery, San Cassiano is a small gem of a resort that’s ideal for intermediate skiers, families and food lovers.
The combination of fabulous and varied skiing, an enviable snow record, hearty Austrian and Tyrolean food and service combined with good value for money, not to mention the best après-ski in the Alps, makes St Anton our staff and directors’ favourite resort – more of them ski here than in any of our other resorts.
One of Austria’s most fashionable resorts, Lech offers the perfect combination of traditional charm, excellent snowfall and fabulous hotels. This chocolate box Alpine village is set beside a meandering river and links to the slopes of Zürs and Oberlech. Those staying here can also easily access St Anton’s ski slopes.
Zürs is the exclusive little sister of Lech and features superb off-piste terrain for those so inclined. Small but perfectly formed, this hamlet of luxury hotels is seated on the slopes for a quick start each morning. Favoured by the wealthy, Zürs is best loved for its heliskiing, fine spas and stylish nightlife. Zürs is a 10-minute drive from St Anton and is blessed with the same superb snow record.
Small but charming St Christoph is near the top of the Arlberg pass and accesses the same pistes as its larger neighbour, St Anton. Its lower slopes are ideal for beginners, while more advanced skiers have St Anton and Stuben’s world of skiing at their feet. Quiet and exclusive, St Christoph is an ideal retreat for those wishing to escape the liveliness of St Anton itself, but still enjoy the wonderful skiing on offer. St Christoph is popular with families and anyone seeking a peaceful, rustic resort with the convenience of doorstep skiing.
