• Sunny, sheltered bowl• World Cup resort• Excellent progression

Although modern and purpose-built, Piancavallo feels very typically Italian. It sits in its own sunny, sheltered bowl in the Friulian Dolomites, between the Venetian coast and the border with Slovenia. The excellent ski school and opportunity for progression on slopes that fan out from the village centre are just a couple of the reasons that this is a popular choice this February half term.

Another perennial favourite among our groups, and a former winner of the ‘Best Ski Resort’ (2017/18), Madonna di Campiglio is a popular choice this February half term. Madonna di Campiglio is one of the most scenic resorts we offer and once you’ve skied there, it’s hard not to fall in love. Set high in the beautiful Brenta Dolomites, a school ski trip to Madonna di Campiglio also offers access to Pinzolo and Folgarida-Marilleva, meaning there’s a good variety of skiing on offer.

This February half term a lot of you have opted to ski in Europe’s sunniest ski resort, Alp 2500 in the Pyrenees. And it’s a great option – despite offering the fantastic experience of skiing under the Mediterranean sun, it’s also incredibly snow sure, thanks to the high altitude and north-facing slopes.
