Aprica (1160m) is located on the Aprica pass in the Northern Italian region of Lombardy, just under two hours’ drive from Milan Bergamo airport. Its location along a mountain pass means that the ski area, all on the same north-facing mountainside, finishes directly behind the resort and consequently most hotels are more or less directly on the slopes or else a short walk away. There is a free ski bus service which does a loop around the resort and all lift stations.

The resort offers 50km of wide and for the most part fairly easy, slopes (9 blue, 8 red, 3 black) from 1160-2310m. This makes it a great resort for beginners/lower intermediates and families, there are lots of good learner slopes and the resort does wonders for building confidence on the piste. More advanced skiers will struggle to find anything particularly challenging as even the black runs are not especially steep. Snowboarders and freestyle skiers will enjoy the snowpark.
The resort also offers cross country skiing, ice climbing, snow shoeing, an outdoor ice rink and an public indoor swimming pool.

Après ski

In terms of après ski there is not much going on around the slopes, though there are a few small bars around the resort for pre/post dinner drinks, as well as a handful of restaurants/pizzerias. Aprica is more suited to families and those looking for a quiet resort.

Hotel Cristallo Club****

Just 100m from the Baradello ski lift, this recently refurbished, comfortable hotel is located in a quiet, yet convenient position 200m from the centre of the resort.

The rooms offer newly refurbished bathrooms, balcony, safe, hairdryer, LCD TV and free WiFi access.

The restaurant offers local and national dishes as well as great views of the slopes.

The hotel spa offers a sauna, steam room, sensory showers and a jacuzzi pool – Activity Breaks guests have an entry discount – and massages and beauty treatments are available on request, to be paid separately.

Lastly the hotel also offers a gym and a billiards table and games room to keep younger guests entertained.
