Summer Skiing in Italy
Rather not have your turns get too rusty? There are a couple of spots in Italy where you can keep them fresh this summer. For summer skiing in Italy, snow junkies can head to Breuil-Cervinia. (the Italian side of the Matterhorn, or as the Italians call it, “Il Cervino”). The iconic peak reopens lifts and trails for the summer season this weekend and Passo Stelvio has already had their lifts running and trails open.
Lift ticket options for Cervinia, in Italy’s Valle d’Aosta region, include the 32.50 euro Italian side only pass, if you feel the need to cross the border on your board(s), then the international day pass will set you back 44.50 euro (hey Switzerland is not known for its bargains, but Zermatt could be worth it).
Passo dello Stelvio, which straddles the regions of Lombardia and Trentino, currently has six lifts and 18 km of trails open, a one day pass is 44.00 euro. Plus they have 2km of nordic trails available.
So take a break from getting sand in your shorts and go make some turns, your winter legs will thank you.
