Snow overview for Italy
Thursday 22 January 2015

Overall conditions continue to impress in Italy after a slow start to the season, but it is certainly making up for lost time now with lots of snow falling in recent days and Thursday 22nd January was no exception. The snow fall on Thursday was lighter but that added to yesterday’s snowfall has provided some excellent riding conditions.

Alagna (40/240cm) reported around 20cm in the town and an impressive 40cm at high altitude on Wednesday 21st January. It continued to snow lightly on Thursday, which has ensured powdery conditions continue to be seen. The pistes have been freshened up and packed down but Thursday’s snow provided another fluffy layer on top. Three of the five lifts were spinning as some areas are closed due to recent snowfall but will be opened when assessed for safety.

A cold and cloudy weekend beckons with many resorts expecting yet more fresh snow – it is a great time to ski in Italy at the moment.

First ski holiday and Sauze a great choice. Former reputation as Ibiza of slopes not applicable anymore and many nationalities. Ski-ing was great, lot of choice - blue fairly poor/boring but reds were fab. We had an awful lot of snow most days/nights so weather not so great. Lot of choice and very picturesque through the tree lined pistes. Ski school was very friendly and great English spoken by all. Food on slopes in the main restaurants at Sportinia very average but the smaller cafes etc on the slopes were great and coffee and hot chocolate top notch. No issues with lifts, occasional stoppages due to skier mistakes. Some slopes got a bit icier and trickier as the day wore on but that is normal - avoid the steeper slopes and you are fine.

Apres was very good and top tip - go to bars at happy hour (about 6-8??) and you get free nibbles galore. Our favourite bar Caffe' Della Seggiovia even served us a platter of breads, hams & chesses with a bottle of wine so that was the free starter before heading out for dinner!

Lastly the pistes were quiet and there were virtually no queues!

I would definately go back but got a few other places to visit first.
