Sunny, sheltered bowl
World Cup resort
On a school ski trip to Piancavallo, you’ll love the typically ‘Italian’ feel of the resort - even though it’s both modern and purpose-built. Despite its reputation as a destination for serious skiers, this is a small, safe resort which you’ll feel comfortable bringing a group of school children to. The centre of the village is mostly pedestrianised with a large, covered shopping area and a new sports hall offering a lively après-ski programme. There’s also an ice rink stadium and alpine coaster too. From Piancavallo, it’s also popular to take in a little culture on a day trip to Venice.
Located in its own sunny, sheltered bowl, Piancavallo has built a well-earned reputation for serious skiing and has hosted a number of women’s alpine skiing World Cup events. The pistes fan out from the village centre and provide a good mix of long, easy runs and more challenging intermediate skiing – all of which interconnects well. Piancavallo boasts an excellent ski school, which is so important for a school ski trip. The ski school is well served by a number of small drag lifts in the village and offers good progression up to the more difficult slopes. The result is that everybody, from the first-timer to the expert, can ski back to the resort.
Brilliant resort for beginners.
