School ski trips to Italy – San Martino di Castrozza

Mark GardnerSan Martino di Castrozza, Ski, Uncategorised

Part of the famous Dolomiti Ski area, the village of San Martino di Castrozza is situated in the Trentino region. This is a fabulous ski area with a long season running from December through April.

Nearby Passo Rollo is included on your pass and both resorts provide a very healthy 60km of piste.  This resort really does provide something for all abilities and boarders are also very well catered for.

The lift infrastructure is excellent and includes 2 high-speed gondolas providing very quick access to the slopes.

Sometimes described as a little “Cortina”, the village itself provides a very pretty setting for a school ski trip.

Our chosen hotels are situated in the village and provides easy access to the lifts.  One of the trip highlights is the night skiing, which again is very easily accessed from the village.
