The largest ski resort in Italy

Which are the biggest skiing areas in Italy? Every skier surely has asked himself this question while he was choosing the destination for his white week. That because a bigger skiing area allows to discover always new landscapes and doesn’t force you to repeat many times the same run. Many lifts usually mean a lot of fun. But sometimes they also mean a lot of people, because the ski resorts which offer the higher number of slopes and lifts are often more crowded than the littler ones.

Matterhorn Ski Paradise (Cervinia, Valtournenche, Zermatt)

Monterosa Ski (Gressoney, Champoluc, Alagna)

Madonna di Campiglio – Folgarida – Marilleva – Pinzolo

180 Km of slopes

After years of waiting also Pinzolo was included on the already wide skiing area, thanks to the new gondola lift connecting it to Madonna di Campiglio. From here, you can go down skiing to Folgarida and Marilleva.

Espace San Bernardo (La Thuile, La Rosiere)

155 km

A beautiful skiing area at a high altitude, not too crowded, between Italy and France, which puts together La Thuile and La Rosiere across the French borders.

PontediLegno Tonale

150 km

The inhabitants of Brescia mountains called it “the big dream”. Actually, connecting resorts that are so different was a wise choice. Temù and Ponte di Legno are more technical, they offers challenging dry snow slopes, and high mountain sceneries. In Tonale Pass, on the other hand, you will find simpler and sunnier slopes, while in Presena you can ski on the glacier until late season.
