Big resort quality with small resort price
5th largest ski area in Italy
5hr ski lessons and hot lunches included on slopes

Resort Information

Despite being the largest ski area in central Italy, and the fifth largest in the country overall, Roccaraso is still somewhat of a hidden gem, making it a great choice for your next Italian school ski trip. In fact, during weeks outside the Italian holidays, you’ll find the slopes really quiet, which is ideal for learners. And there are runs here to suit all abilities. Once your done with skiing for the day, there’s lots of choice for après-ski activities. You can head to the snow fun park, which is one of the best we’ve ever seen, or you can enjoy a pizza made by 2016’s World’s Top Pizza Maker!

Skiing Information

The size of this ski area means that there really are runs here to suit all abilities, from beginners to experts. Your students will enjoy five hours of ski lessons per day as standard here, with hot lunches served on the slopes (as this is halfway down a blue run, beginners on the first couple of days will either have a hot lunch back at the hotel or a packed lunch). One of the highlights of the week is sure to be a torchlit descent with your instructors – a truly magical experience of skiing that your students will never forget!

For me, the most exciting part of my job is meeting the students and hearing all about their fun experiences on the slopes! I believe that school travel is wonderful for the development of young people. – Tracy West Ski Specialist

Don't take our word for it …

La Plagne, particularly Belle Plagne, is a fantastic resort to accommodate a school group. The local amenities and après-ski activities are all within a 5 minute walk and the ski in/ski out location of the accommodation is invaluable. — Queen Elizabeth Grammar School
