Italy Ski Holidays
Italy skiing holidays are sometimes overlooked by people more used to visiting the winter sports Meccas of France, Switzerland and Austria. In fact Italy ski holidays have been fashionable in Europe for years, and with cheap deals on top class Italy ski resorts like Aprica and Lavigna, Italy skiing breaks are rapidly finding favour with British skiers too, especially when the prices are as low as ours at Coop Travel.
Italy is in the perfect location for a winter sports holiday, with Italy skiing resorts spreading from the Dolomite peaks to the Italian Alps. Italy ski deals offer great value accommodation, plentiful après ski entertainment, beautiful mountain scenery and unbeatable skiing and snowboarding facilities. An Italy skiing resort will invariably offer quiet slopes and minimal queuing, especially in the Superski Dolomiti area, which boasts the most ski runs in Europe and is the largest skiing region in the world.
In Italy, snowboarding is almost as popular as alpine skiing, especially in the Italy ski resort of Livigno. Catering for every ability, it has a near-perfect location in the Valtellina valley, close to the Swiss-Italian border. Spread between three rustic “ski in ski out” alpine villages, Livigno has a wide range of accommodation, with Italy ski deals to suit all pockets. As with many resorts in Italy, snowboarding and skiing aren’t the only activities on the menu. Livigno has a wealth of other attractions including horse riding, sleigh rides, skating, tobogganing and dog sledding. The top Italy ski resort for wining and dining, Livigno has an eclectic mix of restaurants, bars, clubs and live music venues for après ski amusement. Passo Tonale is also recommended for its traditional cuisine and atmosphere.
We at Coop Travel also recommend Italy ski deals in Canazei, a charming Italy skiing village in the Val di Fassa resort of Superski Dolomiti. Alternatively look at the Italy skiing resorts of Claviere and Sestriere, in Italy’s superbly named Milky Way region. For late bookings we recommend Courmayeur, which has a sophisticated snowmaking system and is just 8 hours from Calais.
