East of Rome and southwest of Pescara in the Appennines, the Pescasseroli ski area has 26 pistes served by 5 lifts with a maximum vertical descent of 705m. The ski area is spread over the two peaks of Monte Vittelle (1945m) and Monte Ceraso (1814m). The best Pescasseroli snowboarding can usually be found during the months of February and March.
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 Pescasseroli 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. If you are coming by train, the two nearest train stations are Avezzano (from Rome) and Castel di Sangro or Alfedena (from Naples). There are buses from the train stations provided by regional ARPA bus service.
Overall, Pescasseroli is the 36th most popular snowboard & freeride destination of all 57 snowboarding resorts in Italy. Several of the better snowboarding resorts are nearby Pescasseroli including Prati di Tivo, Prato Selva, Ovindoli Monte Magnola, Campo Imperatore, Scanno Monte Rotondo and Campo di Giove.
