Say buongiorno to some of the best skiing to be had in the Alps

There are two things to know about Italy. The coffee really is better and the mountains, scenery and people are truly bellissima.

The Italian mountains are blessed in many ways.

They’re mostly high, meaning guaranteed snow. They’re also on the southern side of the Alps, which, as the Italians say, means a better chance of catching the sunshine. Think sitting out on sun loungers with an espresso or grappa admiring stunning snow-capped mountains – and of course, le signore too. The skiing suits all abilities. If dropping down steep and narrow gullies for your gram is your thing, happy days. But if on the main, you’re up for cruisy corduroy, fresh powder or some occasional steep stuff, 100s of kilometres of some of the best descents await. Saluti!
