This, coupled with lower ticket prices, makes Italy a very attractive place for families to take a ski vacation. Here the best 5 place for skii in Italy.
Families with beginning and intermediate skiers will find plenty of terrain at Cortina d’Ampezzo. More than three dozen lifts in Cortina carry skiers from the center of town to snowfields at the crests of the highest ridges. Cortina d’Ampezzo hosts the Women’s Alpine skiing World Cup on the Olympia slope in the Tofane.
Smaller resorts like Val Gardena offer more intimate ski terrain, nearly 400 kilometers of interconnected skiing. Val Gardena does have facilities for beginners and intermediate skiers and about 65 percent of the terrain reached from here is for advanced and expert skiers, one of the highest in the Dolomites. Val Gardena installed Italy’s first eight-seater chairlift with heated seats. New for the 2019 ski season is the 921-meter, six–person detachable chairlift.
Pila, with 70 kilometers of slopes, allow a breathtaking 360° view of Mont Blanc, the Grand Combin, the Matterhorn and Monte Rosa. 15 lifts supply a variety of trials suitable for all, from beginners to experts.

Sestriere and Val Chisone
One of Italy’s oldest ski resorts and the world’s first purpose-built ski resort. The Val Chisone Milky Way includes about 163 connected trails for intermediate, beginners and experts. Altitudes reach to 2,800 meters. The Chisone valley also includes the smaller ski resort of Pragelato, where you can ski the trails used in the Olympic cross-country events and perhaps catch competitions at the Olympic ski jump.
