Ski Abruzzo Italy


Why not ski Abruzzo in Italy this season? An area situated west of Rome, where some of the slopes have views out across the Adriatic Sea. There are a large number of resorts in this region, covering several mountain ranges, some located within the Abruzzo National Park. The size of these resorts varies, as does the provision for skiing.

If you ski or snowboard here you will quickly discover it's a great area to visit for cross country skiing, with trails throughout the region, and a dedicated cross country area in Opi, a resort in the national park. Here there is a cross country ski school, regular events, and access to the trails, bobsleigh and sled runs at Passo Godi.

Visiting Abruzzo

Skiing and snowboarding in Abruzzo includes the national park resort of Pescasseroli, a popular hotspot, with 14 runs covering all ability levels, and snowshoe excursions available. Elsewhere there is the resort of Roccaraso, one of the largest in the ski Abruzzo region. Here there are a small number of nursery slopes, an equal number of blue and red runs (28), and around 10 blacks, covering over 100km of pistes. Other large ski resorts include Campo Felice and Campo Imperatore.

All the best things come in small packages, so you're sure to enjoy the smaller number of runs surrounding the other resorts in Abruzzo as well, such as Prati Di Tivo, Majelleta, and Campo D Giove. Beginners and Intermediate skiers are especially well catered for.

Off the slopes, Abruzzo is a region with a fascinating history, including some of the best examples of medieval hill towns in Italy. Culture, cuisine, and natural charm are what Abruzzo is all about, and all of this is within 3 hours from the airport in Rome. If that sounds good then why not come and ski Abruzzo?
