Best Campo di Giove Snowboarding

The 34th most popular snowboarding destination in Italy.

  Appennines, Abruzzo, Italy


  September 5, 2019

East of Rome and southeast of L'Aquila in the Appennines, the Campo di Giove ski area has 8 pistes served by 6 lifts with a maximum vertical descent of 1,250m. Also known as Majella Park, the best Campo di Giove snowboading can be found during the period from late January through mid-February.

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.

This ski area is located to the south of Pescara. To reach the snowboarding at Campo di Giove 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, Campo di Giove is the 34th most popular snowboard & freeride destination of all 57 snowboarding resorts in Italy. Several of the better snowboarding resorts are nearby Campo di Giove including Prati di Tivo, Prato Selva, Pescasseroli, Ovindoli Monte Magnola, Campo Imperatore and Scanno Monte Rotondo.
