Northeast of Rome and L'Aquila, the Prato Selva ski area has 7 pistes served by 2 lifts with a maximum vertical descent of 400m. Located south of Pescara in the Appennines, the best Prato Selva 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 Prato Selva 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, Prato Selva is the 12th most popular snowboard & freeride destination of all 57 snowboarding resorts in Italy. Several of the better snowboarding resorts are nearby Prato Selva including Prati di Tivo, Ovindoli Monte Magnola, Pescasseroli, Campo di Giove, Campo Imperatore and Scanno Monte Rotondo.
