Snow in Italy: Great Time to Go Skiing in Italy
Published on Saturday, February 11, 2012 by

The big topic of conversation in Italy these past few weeks has been…snow. Last week, the Italian peninsula was covered in white stuff from Cinque Terre to the mountains outside of Naples. Many of these areas hadn’t seen snow in decades. And it snowed again this weekend. The monuments of Rome are covered in a white film, the canals of Venice are frozen over and there’s so many feet of snow in remote towns in the Apennine mountains that they’re having a hard time digging out.  

This is the winter to ski in Italy. Experts say many Italian resorts, particularly one of our favorites, Cortina d’Ampezzo,  are enjoying a ski season with “near-perfect conditions” including blue skies after fresh snow.  It isn’t too late to enjoy skiing in Italy this season: airfares in February and March are some of the lowest of the year and conditions are expected to continue to be good this winter.
