Skiing in Italy
More about the ski resorts
People say that if you ski in Italy, you ski on the sunny side of the Alps and, indeed, the slopes – there are about 4,000 kilometres of them – seem a little sunnier than elsewhere. Let INTERSPORT Rent introduce you to the most beautiful ski resorts in South Tyrol, Lombardy, Piedmont, Aosta Valley, Veneto and Trentino ...
The six most stunning ski regions in the Italian Alps:
"Benvenuti" in the winter sports paradise of San Martino di Castrozza! There are 60 kilometres of ski runs for every taste, three snow parks and two ski schools spread out across three ski resorts. Ces-Tognola, Col Verde and Passo Rolle are conveniently connected by the local ski bus. What's more, the entire area is part of the Dolomiti Superski resort with a total of 1,200 kilometres of ski runs.
A second important ski area in Trentino is the historic Madonna di Campiglio. Among other things, it enchants visitors with its beautiful location between the Brenta Dolomites and the Adamello Presanella range. Together with several other nearby ski resorts of the Skirama Dolomiti ski association, it offers a wide variety of slopes at an elevation of up to 2,600 metres above sea level.

Picturesque landscapes can also be found at the ski resorts in South Tyrol, for instance, at Val Gardena / Alpe di Siusi ski resort. It boasts breathtaking views of the Sassolungo massif.

Another extremely popular and well-known winter sports resort in South Tyrol is Alta Badia, with 130 kilometres of ski runs.

Surely you've heard of Cortina d'Ampezzo, also known as the "Queen of the Dolomites". This exclusive ski resort is the site of international ski races and a meeting spot for wealthy ski fans. The Arabba ski area at the foot of the Pordoi Pass is a little less posh but equally as diverse. Highlight: the longest downhill run in the Dolomiti Superski region, the twelve-kilometre "La Bellunese".

Together with Cortina, Livigno and Bormio are the sites selected for the 2026 Winter Olympics. Close to Switzerland, high up in the Rhaetian Alps, Livigno is perfect for snowboarders and freeriding enthusiasts. About 30 kilometres east from there, Bormio impresses visitors as a modern ski resort, known for being a site of the famous Ski World Cup. Also famous: the thermal baths in Bormio, which date back to Roman times.

- Aosta Valley
Valtournenche is located on the Matterhorn and thus in the Breuil-Cervinia ski resort, one of the largest winter sports resorts in the Alps. Crossing the border to Switzerland, you'll be on route to Zermatt – for some summer skiing on the glacier or on the 3,480-metre-high Plateau Rosa. Snowboarders like to meet at Snowpark Cervinia, the highest snowpark in Europe. In the ski region around Valtourneche, there are no limits to the fun you can have on the slopes – quite literally.
La Thuile is located in the Aosta Valley, too. It's one of the most popular ski resorts in Italy and connected to the French resort, La Rosière. Fun and variety take centre stage at this ideal place for a family holiday in Italy.

INTERSPORT Rent Tip
Our RENTertainers recommend
Apennines instead of Alps: The Italian mountains stretch from Liguria down to Calabria. In Abruzzo, the mountains reach an altitude of almost 3,000 metres, with the Gran Sasso. This means, you can also ski in more southern regions of Italy. Even on Etna, the famous volcano on Sicily, there are well-groomed slopes, cross-country ski trails, ski schools and huts. Who would have thought?
