Skiing in Abruzzo


The wide ‘Cinquemiglia’ Karst plateau, integral part of the Major Plateaux area, is located between 1,250 e i 1,280 m.a.s.l.; exploited for millennia as a sheep grazing and farming area, in winter the plateau turns into a huge white tableland suitable for any winter sport activity.

Located on the southern edge of this plateau and protected to the west by the Pratello and by the Toppe del Tesoro, Mount Pratello skiing area is and ideal reference point for cross-country skiing and ski touring, being comprised within the widest ski district in Abruzzo, the Roccaraso, Rivisondoli and Pescocostanzo district.

Here are 2 groomed cross-country skiing loops, the first, 15 km long is of medium difficulty, the second, 7 km, is easier.

Food facilities and ski rental service are located close to trailhead (loops are only groomed during Christmas holidays).

The ski touring and the snowshoe trail start from the surrounding area: the first is 6 km long, starting from the ‘Schiapparello’ wood and climbing to the Aremogna plain; the second, of medium difficulty (7 km), starts from the ‘Schiapparo’ wood and climbs to the Serra of Mount Paradiso (1,705 m).
