Another one of Europe’s most popular ski countries is Italy, best known for the fantastic cuisine in the infamous mountain restaurants alongside fantastic skiing and snowboarding in the spectacular Alps. The Aosta Valley and The Dolomites are the main ski areas in Italy, which both boast outstanding scenery and views with breath taking peaks including the Matterhorn and Monte Rosa. These peaks are accessible for snow sure adventures with most of the slopes aimed towards intermediate skiers and snowboarders-  also featuring great backcountry exploration options. Holidays are available for a whole range of budgets and abilities with accommodation at a good standard throughout. Italy is renowned worldwide for its fabulous cuisine including pastas and pizzas, but the coffee is also very tasty whilst up in the mountains! To experience the best of all that Italy can offer for a ski holiday, including fantastic alpine views, a perfect variety of skiing and snowboarding and of course the best mountain cuisine – we recommend trying the resorts Cortina d’Ampezzo and Canazei.
