Having been to Sauze D'Oulx twice, we're looking to ski in Italy again. At first I thought the Dolomites! But then realised the snow might not be good there mid-march... anybody have experience in Selva that time of year?
I want a large skiing area, we thought Italy for price and also we'll have a novice with us, so it's better for easy riding. Also the initial plan is to go mid-March (17-23). I know Cervinia would be good for area and snow, but it's supposedly expensive and the town sounds a bit on the quiet side.
I love the look of Madonna di Campiglio area also, a bit more inland, slightly higher overall, but does anyone know how the snow will be there at that time?
I've been to Sauze at the same time of year and just about been ok for good snow, but last time it was melting quite a bit below 15-1800m and almost bare at 1300m when we left at the end of March.
Alternatively... Where else in Europe would be good conditions in March, but still good value? apart from Chamonix, La Plagne/Les Arcs, St Anton, as I've been there as well and would like something new!
