Why choose this resort?

Situated at the base of Mont Cavallo, Piancavallo has hosted a number of alpine skiing events in the World Cup since the late 1980s. This purpose-built ski resort was the first Italian ski resort with snowmaking facilities. The lift system and ski area have been particularly well-planned with beginners able to enjoy a wide range of slopes and stunning views. The purpose-built village is small and safe and allows easy supervision for school groups. The village includes a covered shopping arcade, bars, cafes and pizzerias. The resort also has an excellent ice sktaing stadium. 

On the slopes

As a purpose-built resort, Piancavallo is well-designed and offers a system of well-planned, interconnecting runs suitable for beginners and internediates. The pistes fan out from the village centre and provide a superb mix of long, easy runs and more challenging intermediate skiing.
