The largest ski resorts in Italy…

Via Lattea

The Via Lattea ski resort, which stretches across France and Italy, is the largest ski area in Italy at around 400 kilometers. Due to the varied and challenging slopes, this area is more suitable for advanced skiers. There is no dozing off here! From November to May, Via Lattea is considered snow reliable thanks to its height of up to 2,789 meters. If the white glory gets scarce, snow cannons always ensure uninterrupted fun on the slopes when skiing in Italy!

Matterhorn Ski Paradise

Because of its size alone, the Matterhorn Ski Paradise offers runs for all demands and preferences. Do you prefer wide freeway slopes? Or do you love the challenge of demanding mogul runs or fun parks? Whatever you are up to – 360 kilometers of slopes and ski routes guarantee top-class skiing fun! A special tip for all ski professionals is the Matterhorn Ski Safari – the entire ski resort is mastered in one day and 10,000 meters in altitude are achieved without using the same downhill run or lift twice! Challenge accepted? Go for it!

Don't miss the longest ski slope in South Tyrol, the "La Longia".

Val Gardena (Gröden)

Thanks to its connection to the world-famous Dolomiti Superski area and the Alpe di Siusi (Seiser Alm), Val Gardena is one of the most popular winter sports destinations among skiers. The world of skiing is at your feet on 1,220 kilometers of slopes in 12 ski resorts - and all with just one Dolomiti Superski pass! 

With this immense size, there is of course something for everyone. Whether skiing with the family, for beginners, professionals or freeriders: it is not for nothing the Val Gardena ski area has won several renowned awards. On your next visit to Italy, don't miss the longest ski slope in South Tyrol, the "La Longia": with over 10 kilometers in length and an elevation difference of about 1 273 meters, it goes from Seceda to Ortisei (St. Ulrich), over beautiful wide slopes and past a natural canyon with frozen waterfall.

Do you want to go high? Then let's go to the Monterosa ski resort in Italy! 20 ski lifts transport you to the 3,275-meter-high Punta Indren, where 132 kilometers of fun on the slopes are waiting for you. On 64 different routes, the adventure awaits beginners as well as advanced and professional skiers. As the Monterosa ski resort is considered one of the most demanding ski resorts in the Alps, you should feel comfortable with your gear. Real adrenaline junkies also appreciate the excellent off-piste runs in the Monterosa ski area.

The ski area at the foot of the Marmolada Glacier is still largely untouched by mass tourism.

Arabba / Marmolada

A real insider tip for skiing in Italy is the Marmolada-Arabba ski resort. The paradise of slopes on the highest mountain in the Dolomites is a real adventure for experienced skiers and winter professionals. Despite the fantastic panorama and its year-round snow guarantee, the ski area at the foot of the Marmolada Glacier is still largely untouched by mass tourism. So, whenever you feel like skiing – the 63 kilometers of slopes in the middle of the Dolomites are waiting for you!

Matterhorn Ski Paradise

Not only big, but also high: At almost 3,900 meters, the Matterhorn Ski Paradise is the highest ski area in the Alps and, thanks to its location, combines Italian lifestyle with Swiss hospitality. Snowboarding and skiing in Italy all year round - the Matterhorn makes it possible. Enjoy endless runs and a breathtaking mountain panorama on 360 kilometers of perfectly groomed slopes. Even freeriders will not be disappointed here: on 36 km of marked freeride runs you will find the ultimate feeling of freedom when gliding through fresh powder snow.

The most adventurous slopes in Italy

Livigno

When the sun first touches the flawless snow cover, you can be already starting off your freeride tour at the "Fresh Track Experience" in the Livigno ski area. As an off-piste enthusiast, you shouldn't miss this experience, because skiing in Italy means epic freeskiing!

Sextner Dolomiten / 3 Zinnen

The Three Peaks (3 Zinnen) stand out unmistakably in the bright blue sky. Skiers can start here from the lift on their off-piste adventure. Anyone who is keen on ski touring can climb further on their own, leaving their tracks in untouched deep snow: with the impressive rock formation of the Sesto Dolomites in view.

The mountain calls! Don't keep it waiting.
