Italy is a strong contender for the most underrated European country in terms of skiing, but the Italian resorts of both the Alps and Apennine offer some of the most traditional and authentic mountain towns, along with staggeringly beautiful scenery.

Significantly more laid back and relaxed than its French counterparts, the Italian ski scene is dominated by low prices, good food, and a stress-free atmosphere. There’s no compromise on the slopes either, and the skiing in Italy is some of the most enjoyable you’ll find on the continent. Try Livigno for excellent value and one of the best terrain parks in Italy, or Cervinia for high-altitude, long-runs, and excellent snow reliability.
