Altopiano delle Rocche and Gran Sasso Aquilano Skiing Area (L'Aquila)
Campo Felice, Ovindoli-Monte Magnola, Campo Imperatore and Monte Cristo, Castel del Monte, Santo Stefano di Sessanio
The L’Aquila plain is set between two mountainsides: the imposing Gran Sasso to the north and the Sirente-Velino range to the south. The Altopiano delle Rocche plateau stretches along the latter, at an altitude between 1,250 and 1,340 metres, protected by the two massifs which give the area its name and by a Regional Park. Its two main towns are Ovindoli and Campo Felice, which together offer about forty kilometres of ski runs.
On the Gran Sasso side, the facilities are found throughout the vast Campo Imperatore plateau, the highest in the Apennines and now a historic destination for ski enthusiasts. Here, the 16 km of ski runs, modern facilities and hotels make for full enjoyment of the wintertime offering.
Recently, the three ski resorts have formed a consortium as the “Le 3 Nevi” Skiing Area, an effort that has allowed for investments in the facilities and an expansion of the artificial snow-making programme, as well as agreements for a single ski-pass.
