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
They also do kippers

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

where did you stay?
Hi

We stayed in Hotel Evaldo in Arabba
There were motor homes parked up at the ice rink in town but I don't know what facility's there are,
There is a campsite just on the edge of Corvara close to the lifts
There are other sites I spotted but cant remember where they were

Livigno on the border of Switzerland/Italy. Guaranteed snow till the end of April and plenty of campsites to choose from. It’s also duty free so cheap diesel and beer!!!
