Where is the best place in Italy/Austria/Switzerland to ski?... as in where has the best park?? Also, what time of the season is usually the best ski? I am doing a semester abroad, and naturally I want to bring my skis, get a pass, and shred!
you have stubai , hintertux , serfaus , ehrwald , westerndorf , mayrhofen ... all in about an hour drive available , laax is about 3h away from innsbruck , not to forget nordpark wich you can get to ,in about 20 min directly from the center of the city
take a look here ( http://www.skiinfo.it/ski-resorts/airports-12800-it.jhtml?cityName=Firenze&sort=distance&citySearch=true&showCitySearch=true&cityDistance=300 ) these are the resorts less than 300km away from Florence....but i´m pretty sure that they suck...
Look for smth in the Dolomites... like in Val Badia, Val Gardena. www.dolomitisuperski.com
