andalo

Perched on a plateau with a view of Lake Garda, Andalo’s stunning setting gets school groups excited from the word go. A chance to immerse your students in Italian culture, Andalo has a rich mountain heritage and stacks of traditional charm, so they can look forward to experiencing daily life in rural Italy and learning a little Italian in the local shops.

Andalo’s modern lifts speed you around the ski area and the manicured slopes lead directly into the village, making it easy for your students to regroup. Students with plenty of energy love speeding along the long runs above the tree line, cruising down the forest tracks and racing across the open snowy plateau back to the village. After an exciting day on the mountain, it’s time to refuel with big bowls of spaghetti before going ice-skating at the ice rink or swimming at the ACQUAIN centre.

Skiing

Beginners have both village-level and higher altitude slopes to master the basics on, and meticulous piste grooming means your students can learn in confidence without worrying about the longest run down.

Extensive snowmaking keeps the slopes in top-notch condition all season long, and advanced skiers can put their nerves to the test on the challenging black Olimpica piste.

passo-tonale

Passo Tonale is a high-altitude ski resort with a great snow record, extensive snowmaking facilities and a glacier, making it an excellent choice for an early or late ski tour. Suitable for all grades of skier, with long and varied pistes, Passo Tonale has been a popular choice for schools for many years.

One of Italy’s highest and sunniest resorts, our groups love the speedy lift network and lack of queues, as well as having the opportunity to ski on the Presena glacier. The resort offers superb progression from sunny, wide open nursery slopes to the longer more challenging runs higher up.

Offering great value for money, this purpose-built town has a lively feel with everything you need on hand. Skating across the natural ice-rink is a popular après activity, if your group isn’t already cutting shapes on the dance floor or competing in our quiz. And if your students fancy an après-ski swim, your lift pass gives discounted entrance to the nearby Ponte di Legno swimming pool.

Skiing

The village-level beginner lifts ferry learners to snowsure blues, where they can get to grips with the basics beneath a beautiful mountain backdrop.

Improvers have a good range of lower altitude runs near the resort to build their confidence on, while intermediates love the long cruises, such as the 6km tree-lined run down to Ponte di Legno. Any experts in your group can have fun higher up the mountain, learning to carve on the long reds as well as brave the fast black that sweeps down from the glacier.

piancavallo

A resort with a World Cup slalom course, Piancavallo is a great place to inspire your students. School groups love the small town feel and friendly atmosphere of this well-equipped village and, off the slopes, there’s an indoor ice-rink and authentic Italian pizza to tuck into.

Thanks to extensive snowmaking, good conditions are normally assured for most of the winter right back to resort level, whilst the pistes are easily accessible thanks to a good lift system. Piancavallo was one of the first European resorts to offer a snow guarantee, thanks to the installation of 40 snow cannons. The resort is particularly suited to mixed ability groups, due to the variety of skiing on offer.

With pistes fanning out from the village centre, access to the slopes is easy. For the final wow factor, your pupils can look forward to stunning views from the ski lifts, with dramatic panoramas of the Venetian coast.

Skiing

Magic carpet lifts give beginners easy access to the nursery slopes, where they can master their snow ploughs before trying them out on the blues. The resort’s gentle gradients mean that the red runs here are unintimidating, so improvers and intermediates have a fantastic range of pistes to hone their skills on.

You can always find your group on the slopes in this small resort, it is as if you have your own private mountain.

OTHER ITALIAN SCHOOL SKI TRIPS

aprica

A peaceful and friendly town with a long history of skiing, this well-equipped resort has a friendly feel that’s popular with our groups. Renowned for its great snow, the medium-sized ski area is surrounded by national parks and has plenty of north facing slopes. Making your ski days easier, you can hop on the lifts at three separate points, for direct access to the interlinked areas of Magnolta, Palabione and Baradello.

A choice of tree-lined runs makes for stunning scenery and Colle Passo has the highest skiing in resort, which is particularly stunning on sunny days. There is plenty to do off the slopes too, with a modern sports centre for swimming and a floodlit ice-rink for skating beneath the stars. There’s also bowling down the valley, karaoke and bum-boarding to keep everyone entertained, as well as quizzes and bingo back at your hotel.

Skiing

A top choice for novices, Aprica’s extensive village-level nursery slopes are ideal for building confidence in the early stages. With the basics mastered, beginners can use the drags and chairlifts to progress to Aprica’s wide and uncrowded runs.

More confident skiers can join their instructors higher up the mountain to cruise along the blues and long reds in the Baradello ski area, while confident skiers looking for a challenge can seek out the long black runs.
