Full review

We stayed at the Hotel Galassia which is almost on the slopes, just a short walk accross the Car Park and you can ski a blue down to the 4 man lift. The pistes are almost all wide, even the steep reds and the views are to die for. The drag lifts have been replaced by chairs, the fast 6 man chair is great even when there are Q's. It's easy to ski over to the neighbouring resrt of Artesina, which has some challenging pistes, also a few drag lifts, especially the long one back. Well worth a visit though. Prato Nevoso is a great resort for intermediates and beginners with lots of ski schools to choose from. The snowboard park is a great idea, making it much safer for everyone. We liked the Hotel Galassia it has a swimming pool, jacuzzi and steam room, just what you need after a hard day on the slopes. Paul the Manager was very friendly and helpful. The food was good & plentiful, the rooms were warm and large with big comfortable beds, the bathrooms have shower or bath & lots of hot water. We will definitely be making a return visit!
