A resort with a World Cup slalom course, Piancavallo is a great place to inspire your students. School groups love the small town feel and friendly atmosphere of this well-equipped village and, off the slopes, there’s an indoor ice-rink and authentic Italian pizza to tuck into.
Thanks to extensive snowmaking, good conditions are normally assured for most of the winter right back to resort level, whilst the pistes are easily accessible thanks to a good lift system. Piancavallo was one of the first European resorts to offer a snow guarantee, thanks to the installation of 40 snow cannons. The resort is particularly suited to mixed ability groups, due to the variety of skiing on offer.
With pistes fanning out from the village centre, access to the slopes is easy. For the final wow factor, your pupils can look forward to stunning views from the ski lifts, with dramatic panoramas of the Venetian coast.
Magic carpet lifts give beginners easy access to the nursery slopes, where they can master their snow ploughs before trying them out on the blues. The resort’s gentle gradients mean that the red runs here are unintimidating, so improvers and intermediates have a fantastic range of pistes to hone their skills on.
You can always find your group on the slopes in this small resort, it is as if you have your own private mountain.
