Skiing in Italy is about short lift queues, well-groomed pistes with great snow-making technology, plus diverse ski areas. But be sure to embrace the true laid-back, Italian style and enjoy a long scenic lunch stop before tackling your next runs. Despite being relatively unknown as a ski destination, Italy has 290 ski resorts, and you can look forward to 5,786 kilometres of slopes.
The two best-known ski areas in Italy are:
The Italian ski season tends to run from early December through to late April, however, some of the higher ski resorts can run a bit longer. Choosing when to go all depends on what kind of luxury ski holiday you are looking for! The festive celebrations make a luxury ski holiday in December magical. For those wanting the best conditions, emptier slopes and best value for luxury ski chalets then January is the best month. February is a great time for families and late February and March start to bring the longer sunnier days. By April there is the risk of slushy afternoons, but you will benefit from warmer weather and can enjoy long Italian mountain lunches in the sunshine.
The spectacular Italian Alps are home to some of the most impressive ski resorts found anywhere in the world, and Italy is becoming increasingly regarded as one of the favourite luxury ski chalet holiday destinations in Europe. Like so much of Italy, their ski resorts can also have an effortlessly stylish ambience, so you can expect the best from your luxury Italian ski chalet.
For those wanting ultimate luxury, Cortina D’Ampezzo is Italy’s answer to Courchevel 1850 or St. Moritz. This Italian ski resort boasts designer boutiques, impressive mountain restaurants and a vibrant social scene, as well as spectacular luxury ski chalets, with stylish interiors and incredible facilities to make.
The resorts in the Milky Way offer an authentic Italian experience, and the luxury ski chalets here are of a supreme standard.

Many of the luxury Italian chalets here have been built to complement the charming local church and quaint local restaurants.
