Popular with Italian skiers for many years, Abruzzo offers a genuine Italian skiing experience as yet untouched by mass tourism. An average of 350 cm of snow falls each winter for a ski season that lasts from December until April.
Skiers looking for modern ski lifts, well-groomed pistes, abundant snowfall backed up with comprehensive snowmaking and charming villages where competitively priced family-run hotels serve tasty Italian food should consider Abruzzo for their next holiday on the slopes. The notion of lengthy queues and jostling to get on a skilift is almost unheard of in Abruzzo and the price of a lift pass is very competitive. A six days pass, high season in Roccaraso is roughly £190, with reductions for children and seniors.
Getting to the slopes is easy – SkiAbruzzo.com’s programme includes ski-to-the-door hotels and several others that offer complimentary door-to-door ski shuttle services for their guests.
