School Ski Trip Destination Highlight: Italy
At Ski Adaptable, we offer all inclusive ski packages for schools and colleges to Italy. Italy is a fantastic destination for a school ski trip due to its amazing views, plenty of snow, range of slopes for all abilities and great apres ski activities too! Each Italian ski resort offered by Ski Adaptable has something different to offer; from clocking up the miles on the Sella Ronda or Glacial skiing in Passo Tonale to the fantastically friendly resort of Folgaria. Italy is also full of culture with incredible food for your students to try.
Italy is one of the more affordable school ski trips and with us, they come with a complete package of safety and fun. So, without further ado, here are the Italy school ski trips that we offer:
Folgaria school ski trips are renowned for being somewhat of a magical experience. Set high up in the Great Highlands of Trentino, its excellent lifts, friendly locals, high standard accommodation and an Italian charm keeps our groups returning year after year.
Folgaria is best suited to beginner and intermediate groups as the area is heavily forested which offers great protection from the weather. There are also some fantastic learner green slopes as well as brilliant long, steady, wide tree-lined blue runs which are a great confidence booster. For the more intermediate skiers, there are a selection of very decent red runs and some more challenging black runs too if they’re feeling brave..!
Snow in Folgaria is best from Christmas until end of March although the resort uses artificial snow to ensure snow remains topped up throughout the whole season.
Passo Tonale has really picked up popularity and is fast emerging as one of our most popular school ski trip resorts. With heavy snow up to 3000m, there are variety of fantastic slopes all equipped with fast lifts and an extensive choice of accommodation.
The skiing in Passo Tonale covers the Adamello Ski area, which not only spreads across the slopes of Passo Tonale but also the linked Ponte di Legno. From the main slopes, there are great views of the Presena Glacier and the surrounding ski areas are great for helping beginners find their confidence as the slopes are wide and gentle. However, there are also some more challenging runs such as going up the Presena Glacier.
Passo Tonale is renowned for being ‘snow-sure’ meaning that some of out accommodation is even ski-to-door! It’s also a a fairly small village purely dedicated to skiing, surrounded by stunning mountains. In the town your students can ice skate, snowshoe, night ski and swim!
Val di Fassa
This breathtaking resort is what a stereotypical mountain range Italian ski resort is supposed to be! Its authentic Italian atmosphere and welcome combined with some top-class skiing and our range of high-standard, cosy accommodation makes it a real winner.
Val di Fassa offers some of the best skiing in Italy and covers 200km of beautiful slopes, including the famous Marmolada Glacier. These slopes are great for beginner skiers, intermediates and advanced skiers with resorts stretching across the UNESCO world heritage Sella Massif mountain range. With different areas suited to all ranges of ski abilities, each and every one of your students will find a place they’re comfortable to ski - whether that’s the Sella Ronda, Canzei or Val Gardena.
Val di Fassa also offers some great apres ski activities, taking the fun into the night! From indoor ice skating to bowling, ice hockey matches to cross country skiing, your students will take in an abundance of new experiences in Val di Fassa.
Milky Way - Sauze d’Oulx
Sauze d’Oulx is a rustic, beautiful Italian village with links to the extensive Vialettea, also known as Milky Way ski area, which offers an incredible 400km of runs. Here, you’ll find a range of high pistes, a diverse selection of runs and a hearty Italian welcome!
Sauze is a very popular choice in the Milky Way network as it provides great access to the 212 runs of the extensive 400km Milky Way. Sauze itself is an intermediate skiers dream with tree-lined runs to enjoy; and for beginners, Sauze d’Oulx also has a good reputation for talented, English speaking ski instructors.
Sauze is a small town which has some lovely, quaint shops, good restaurants and a wholly authentic ‘old Italian’ feel with its cobbled streets, narrow alleyways and picturesque views. There are also surprisingly modern aspects to the village, which have aided in turning the Sauze d’Oulx into the desirable ski resort that it is today.
