The ski season is in full swing, so we tell you where to go skiing - not only with a camper . This is the second part of our guide - this time we focused on winter camping in Italy.

Italy is a country beloved by Poles, both in summer and winter. This is no wonder, because it has to offer not only wonderful monuments, but also breathtaking landscapes and an inexhaustible wealth of nature in every form. The sea, forests, lakes and of course mountains. There are plenty of ski regions here, with lots of snow and excellent infrastructure, which attracts organizers of numerous sports competitions and thousands of tourists.

In many places, conditions for skiing last from the end of October to the beginning of May , so Italy is a destination for skiing enthusiasts for at least half the year. The numerous resorts vary not only in terms of prices, but also the required technical skills and even entertainment, so everyone - from families with children to "crazy" snowboarders - will find something for themselves here.

Camping Vidor Pozza di Fassa



The enchanting Val Di Fassa valley stretches in the very center of the Dolomites. There are such famous ski resorts as Predazzo, Canazei, Obereggen Latemar, Sella Ronda and Marmolada . In the entire Val di Fassa valley, we have 9 ski resorts at our disposal, i.e. a total of 230 kilometers of slopes (not including Sella Ronda - approx. 500 km of slopes) of varying degrees of difficulty.

There are 122 ski lifts on the routes. The ski resorts are interconnected: Canazei and Belevedere connect to the Passo Pordoi slopes; Ciampac and Fedaia routes with the ski center in Marmolada; Campitello Col Rodella is connected to Passo Sella; Vigo - from Pozza di Fassa; the centers of Catinaccio, Aloch, Buffaure and Carezza - from Nova Levante; from Moena Alpe Lusia we will ski to Bellamonte, on Passo San Pellegrino we will ski all the way to Falcade. After purchasing the appropriate ski pass, we can ski on a different route every day .

The Val di Fassa ski areas lie at altitudes ranging from 1,330 m to 2,630 m above sea level . The valley and the nearby Marmolada massif also offer several beautiful "off-pistes", i.e. descents off the official routes. Those looking for a thrill on the jumps should definitely go to the Belvedere arena . There will be a special border-cross track there.

Families with children will rather choose easy routes around Catinaccio, Buffaure, Bellamonte and San Pellegrino . It is worth adding that Passo San Pellegrino is considered the most beautiful pass in the Dolomites. The famous Col Margherita route (2,520 m above sea level - max. slope 49%) and Panoramica Rossignol in Falcade (max. slope 42%) are among the top 10 routes in the Dolomites.
