Skiing is a great sport for everyone: families love it, as do kids and beginners. But the real pleasures of this sport are reserved for those who live and breathe it 365 days a year. Many of us devotees to the sport are constantly on the lookout for the perfect terrain to test our skills. There is no need to look any further than Italy Ski Resorts which offer great powder and awe-inspiring slopes.

One of the best resorts out there for avid skiers is Arabba in Italy, which features a wide array of excellent black runs from PortaVescovo Mountain. As you carve up the superb runs here you'll be treated to beautiful views of the surrounding areas. For a bit of easy cruising there are red runs on PassoPordoi that should keep you well entertained, especially on days when you're happy to trade steeps for speed.
Cervinia is another resort, also in Italy, which will be a thrill for advanced skiers. Highlights include a 22km run to Valtournenche which will leave you panting, and guided off-piste which will take you to the kind of terrain you only see in your dreams.
So if you love to ski but are a bit bored by the run of the mill ski resort, head to Italy where you'll find amazing terrain which will have you deep in powder. You'll come back with stories that will make all your friends jealous. Perhaps the best part of these holidays, is that you'll be surrounded by other ski addicts, with these people as companions you're sure to head out on the best skiing of your life.
