Well-established, friendly resort
Suitable for all levels
Reliable snow cover
Escape the crowds and enjoy a variety of skiing experiences on a school ski trip to Aprica! Aprica is a charming resort close to Lake Como in the dramatic Dolomites. As skiing is above 2000m, the snow cover is pretty reliable. This is a well-established resort, which means that there are some fantastic après-ski options to keep your young students entertained, including discos, karaoke, swimming and ice skating. Your skiers won’t go hungry here either, thanks to the many fantastic pizzerias and other restaurants serving up some delicious Italian treats!
Aprica’s north-facing slopes boast reliable natural snow cover, as well as snow cannons covering approximately 95% of the ski area. There are runs to suit all abilities here, from wide, uncrowded slopes, which are perfect for beginners, to challenging reds (including some World Cup runs) and even a few tricky blacks. A highlight is the Superpanoramica, a 6km blue run offering breathtaking views. It’s perfect for both beginners and more experienced skiers who want to chill out a bit and take in their surroundings. And the terrain park at Baradello will keep any snowboarders in your group happy too.
Very pleasant village/town with good skiing (no queues) and conscientious English speaking instructors. Limited skiing area for the more advanced.
