Today is the first day of spring, so it might seem strange to be talking about skiing, but the ski season goes on until mid-April and sometimes even summer in certain resorts. And let’s face it, the ski industry had a difficult season in Italy. First, they were closed for months due to Covid. Then, they were scheduled to open – everybody was excited, families booked trips and everyone was ready to go until the government announced they had to stay closed the day before they were set to open. Not cool. So for the moment, Italian resorts are still closed even though there is at least another month left of the season.
But when this is all over and if you happen to find yourself in Milan during the winter, give some thought to visiting one of these resorts. Sure Milan is more known for fashion and finance and it is usually not associated with winter sports, but it is strategically positioned for visiting some of Europe’s best ski areas. In just three hours, you can hit the super-chic resorts of Switzerland and the Olympic-worthy slopes of France and Italy.
