@Pedrodelgado, welcome to snowHead . I think you'll need to provide more information. You interested in blue runs, reds, blacks? Nightlife? Somewhere with a sense of travel when you ski?

Pedrodelgado, welcome to snowHeads! snowHead

There are many resorts in Italy suitable for intermediates, but I and many other snowHeads love the Sella Ronda area of the Italian Dolomites. Stunning scenery, mountain restaurants that offer excellent food at very reasonable prices, and excellently maintained pistes. They have also invested very heavily in snow making, so if Mother Nature should unfortunately be a bit skimpy with the snowfall when you are out there you will still be assured of being able to ski.

Sorry about my vagueness. looking to go at the end of January. Enjoy reds and blacks. No interest in nightlife. Would be looking for somewhere with a sense of travel rather than just going up and down the same lifts.. is there an obvious place to think about? I guess a bit like Porte du soleil where there is plenty of choice.

@Pedrodelgado, The Via Lattea gives you great range to "travel" if thats what you're interested in... Sestriere, Sauze d'Oulx, Claviere, Cesana, Sansicario, Pragelato & Montgenevre

@Pedrodelgado, I'd agree that @Alastair Pink and @letsgetpiste suggestions would suit. With the latter suggestion you get Italy and France to ski in.

Pedrodelgado, if something like Porte du Soleil is what you want, then have to agree with Sella Ronda suggestions.

In my experience an Italian black run isn't the same as a French one. They love a bit of grooming so the black runs seem to be hard and compeletely bump free. That's certainly the case with what they grade a black in Livigno.

Not done Sella Ronda but have been to Sauze d'Oulx twice. Extensive skiing on the Via Lattea but apart from a couple of black runs which they left ungroomed, the piste skiing is pleasant if not especially challenging. Also Sauze is one end of the area and the links to Sestriere and the rest of the area were closed for a couple of days on our last visit. That said we had a great time.

@Pedrodelgado, have you considered a Bash? The Birthday Bash Runs 3-10 February, based in Arabba right on the Sella Ronda. snowHead
