“Lots of slopes for all levels, and even cross-country skiing possibilities”

SkiPass Alto Sangro
Reviewed 7 July 2015

Alto Sangro is a great place for both downhill skiing and cross-country skiing. The only disadvantage is the parking. We had to walk quite far with our skis, so I recommend that you arrive early! We had lots of fun and surprisingly few people in the slopes we chose, in one of them were were basically alone - what a luxary!

The Roccaraso ski area is not well know in the UK, no one believes you can ski near Rome, but it is a great area for a weeks skiing with some really nice bars around the slopes. You will need a photo for the pass which is a wireless one.

We went half term week and never had any queues and great some. This was a really cheap holiday compared to the main resorts in the Alps, give it a try.

Easy to sort from the centre of Roccaraso - English isn't widely spoken in this part of Italy but we sorted fine.

Great ski area with varied terrain and runs just two hours from Naples or Rome. Very friendly and helpful staff on all lifts.

Due to the big holiday companies rip-off culture during the February half-term skiing season I dedcided to find an 'off the beaten track' ski reort and was pleasantly surprised with the result in finding over 100km of piste at Roccaraso in the beautiful Italian region of Abruzzo. Although this year was not their best, the snowfall is generally exceptional for a resort so far south in Italy. We (my wife, Son and I) flew into Naples and was met by the owner of our chosen accomadation, IL Lavatoio, (also well recommended), for the 1.25 hours transfer, obviously we paid him to transfer us but it was cheaper than hiring a car. There is one gondola at the resort and numerous chairlifts (some rather slow) and a few button lifts. the treelined runs towards Rivisondoli are very pleasant too. The resort is probably best for intermediates with only two 'Black' runs available. There were no queues to speak of even though it was school holidays. The Beer in the mountain restuarants (very Important) was 4Euros for a 'Large' bottle(660ml) and a plate of freshly cooked pasta around the 8Euros. The ski hire was very cheap compared to alpine resorts. Overall if you are trying to do a ski holiday and not get ripped off by the tour companies I would recommend exploring this option.
