Why Choose Prato Nevoso?

Part of the Mondolé ski area, Prato Nevoso is one of our favourite destinations for school ski trips. Still relatively undiscovered by British tourists, you get a real flavour of Italy here, alongside a warm, friendly welcome and quieter atmosphere.

Your group will feel safe here and the compact size of the resort means you won’t worry about losing them. We can arrange comfortable accommodation that offers doorstep skiing too, making this a really convenient option for your next school ski trip.

The skiing in Prato Nevoso is best suited to beginners and intermediates, which normally make up the majority of school ski groups. There are limited options for advanced skiers in Prato Nevoso itself, but easy access to the trickier runs in Artesina means there’s plenty to keep them entertained too.

Prato Nevoso is a real haven for beginners learning to ski, and most can expect to be tackling long blue runs by the end of the week. So if you do have a number of students making their first foray on to the slopes, this is the ideal destination. The instructors from the local ski school are super friendly and speak good English too.

A hidden gem of a resort. A very high standard of accommodation and ski tuition with fun instructors who speak good English.Woking High School, February 2016

Intermediates will find the greatest choice of runs here, so Prato Nevoso is also fantastic for those who’ve skied before and want to hone their skills. Many of the runs are pretty wide, allowing for great progression.

It’s also the perfect choice if you have any snowboarders in your midst. Prato Nevoso is the home of the Italian Snowboarding Club and the resort has a great reputation for promoting the sport. There’s a great snowpark here, with a halfpipe and boardercross course too. There’s even a snowboard museum for those interested in its history!

In terms of conditions, with a top altitude of more than 2000m, Prato Nevoso is generally pretty reliable when it comes to snow cover. Plus, the vast majority of the resort is covered by snow cannons, for when Mother Nature refuses to play ball. In fact, the resort is known for its high level of piste maintenance, which ensures the slopes are immaculate and a joy to ski on.

One of the quieter resorts that we offer, Prato Nevoso lacks some of the nightlife of the bigger resorts, which is great news for school groups. There’s plenty of activity options, as well as some lovely restaurants where you can try typical Italian cuisine. And you can be sure that your group will be able to enjoy a good night’s sleep, before heading back out onto the slopes again!

Great location, excellent hotel, good food, wonderfully compact resort and stunning views.Oswestry School, March 2016
