Aprica – Alta Valtellina – Magical Ski Holidays On & Off the Slopes
Aprica skiing in Italy provides a good mix of on- and off-pistes activities. If 2,300 meters of slopes don’t take your breath away, there is ice-skating and climbing. Aprica is only 120 km away from the Orio al Serio airport, so ski weekends are more than feasible on a tight schedule. The longest slope lasts 6 km, with 50 km of terrain divided among 22 different ski runs (92 different pistes). Intermediate skiers will have the best of times and an Alta Valtellina Lift Pass opens up slopes in Caterina, Livigno and Bormio. If skiing downhill is a downer, then the 14 km of cross-country ski routes and 7 km of skate cross country runs keeps the pickiest of patrons elated. Aprica offers free skiing around December 13th every year. You won’t find much snowboarding in Aprica itself, but the Alta Valtellina in general offers some intense snowboarding parks throughout the ski areas (a ski pass is necessary). Aprica skiing turns to other outdoor pursuits in the summer, with a web of hiking trails, horse-riding routes, golf courses, tennis courts, outdoor pools, and everything camping related.
