East of Rome and south of Pescara in the Appennines, the Roccaraso - Rivisondoli ski area has 65 pistes totalling 119km that are served by 27 lifts with a maximum vertical descent of 800m.

The Appennine Mountains are known for their heavy, wet snow which lasts throughout the winter. In particular, they are known for their unusually deep, record-setting snowfalls that usually come annually in March. The Appennines are home to over 25 ski areas with most of them being very family-friendly.

To reach the snowboarding at Roccaraso - Rivisondoli by air, you will want to fly into Aeroporto Internazionale d'Abruzzo (PSR) in Pescara on the eastern Adriatic Sea coast. There are several international flights into Pescara and intercountry flights from Rome. While you could fly to Rome and rent a car, those heavy snowfalls make driving unexpectedly difficult. From the airport in Pescara, some of the resort hotels do provide a complementary shuttle bus.

Overall, Roccaraso - Rivisondoli is the 34th most popular snowboard & freeride destination of all 43 snowboarding resorts in Italy. Several of the better snowboarding resorts are nearby Roccaraso - Rivisondoli including Prati di Tivo, Prato Selva, Passolanciano - Maielletta, Pescocostanzo, Campo Felice and Ovindoli Monte Magnola.
