    Sella Ronda area
    One next to the lifts in Covara
    I'm sure there are others
    Not stayed at it but skied past it
    It looked full mid January last year I think booking would be needed
    Vans usually parked up next to the outdoor ice rink in Arabba but don't know if there are any facility's
    Great ski area

    Colfosco and Corvara are great resorts. Stayed there last year and it's a bit "grandad skiing" but worth the trip. You can do a big loop all the way around, (sorry forgot what its called) takes about a day but worth doing it. We stayed on a campsite www.campingcolfosco.org which we never booked, just turned up and it was really nice, high amp electric, ski from the van or walk about 5 mins to the lift. Little walk in to town but nice and pleasant. We will be going back next year but this year we are heading to Livigno and St Anton.
    Just back from Winterberg in Germany where we had a last moment change of plan and went there for New year. Left Thursday night from Cheshire, arrived back at midnight last night, 1200 mile round trip in the van. Good fun, only partly open but long enough for me to get my boarding fix and smack my nose up with a face plant :xThumb::xThumb:

    I’ve read a couple of these ski threads- what is a face plant?

    Usually very painful!

    If you don't transfer your weight on a snowboard as you turn the toe edge of the board digs in to the snow and stops the board dead, you continue to travel at whatever speed so you are slammed face first in to the snow, you can do an arse plant too turning in the other direction! Face planting can also result in broken bones, writs, collar etc as you stick your arms out to try and prevent said face plant!

    Skiers can do face plants as well

    we went throught the Mont Blanc tunnel two years ago (tad expensive) and ski'd in Courmayeour
    If you go to Courmayeour go late afternoon to a pub called BAR ROMA on the main street food to die for
    as much as you can eat for about £12 with a drink

    we may venture into Italy this year
