This winter has presented quite the challenge for snow enthusiasts in and around Lazio. While neighboring regions like Abruzzo boast (some) pockets of powdery delight, Lazio seems to have been bypassed by Jack Frost himself. Sure, there may be a dusting of snow at higher altitudes – think 1800 to 2000 meters – but overall, it’s shaping up to be one of the toastiest winters in recent memory.

But fear not, fellow skiers and snowboarders! Even in the absence of natural snow, there are still opportunities to carve up the slopes and feel that rush of cold air against your face. Thanks to the wonders of modern technology, some ski resorts have invested in artificial snow-making machines, ensuring that winter sports aficionados can still indulge in their passion, even if the landscape resembles a springtime meadow.

Unfortunately, the ski facilities within Lazio proper have yet to receive their snowy blessings. As of now, the following locations remain closed:

– Campo Staffi
– Terminillo. Check their website for any updates.
– Monte Livata
– Campo Stella – Leonessa
– Campo Catino

Before embarking on your snowy escapade, be sure to contact your chosen ski resort to confirm their operating status. Weather conditions can be unpredictable, and temporary closures may occur at short notice.

While it may not be the winter wonderland we had hoped for, don’t let a lack of natural snow dampen your spirits. With a bit of creativity and a willingness to adapt, you can still make this season one to remember. Also, it’s a great season for hiking! So grab your gear, round up your fellow powder hounds, and hit the slopes – artificial snow or not, adventure awaits!

Happy skiing!
