Situated in the heart of the Italian Alps in northern Italy and known for its mighty UNESCO Dolomites, Trentino is a fantastic choice for late-season skiing.
The region boasts some fantastic high-altitude resorts, 800km of fantastic slopes, and some of the best snow-making equipment in Europe.
The region also offers excellent mountain huts, giving skiers the opportunity to savour traditional gourmet dishes, prepared from local ingredients and paired with delicious wines from the mountains.
There is so much to love about spring skiing in Trentino; the weather boasts blue skies and sunshine, allowing skiers to admire the scenic views of the Dolomites from the pistes, making it the ideal getaway for relaxed skiing to enjoy ‘La Dolce Vita’. The days are longer, giving ski enthusiasts more time to carve up the snow and enjoy the fresh mountain air.
With the sun setting later, there’s no better way to end a day than with some après-ski fun. In March 2023, Trentino hosts a great number of fantastic music concerts such as The Paradice Music taking place every Thursday and Saturday afternoon, up until 25 March 2023. The attendees will get a chance to see and hear renowned Italian and international artists performing various musical styles such as rock, pop, country, folk, jazz, tango, and classical music using unusual instruments entirely made from ice. The Dolomiti Ski Jazz 2023 taking place from 3 to 12 March 2023, will take place on the Val di Fiemme and Val di Fassa ski slopes, museums, theatres, and pubs and bring relaxed rhythms to the mountains.
