Roccaraso’s slopes are famously uncrowded even at weekends when they get a little bit more traffic with Romans and Neapolitans coming to take advantage of ski-ing and snowboarding in Abruzzo. It ‘s even listed by National Geographic in its Top 10 Mediterranean Adventures! It’s a great choice for penny pinching families, the under 12’s get a free ski-pass between the dates 7 January to 1 February and 18 March to the close of the ski-season. Cost of a ski-pass for an adult during this period , €22 per day.
I am truly rubbish at snowboarding but this great video shot at Roccaraso this year makes me want to give it another go!
