Santa Caterina School Ski Trips
Snow, Sun and Fun!

The Santa Caterina ski resort has become synonymous with snow, sun and fun. The favourable climate and an advanced artificial snow system guarantee perfect slopes from late November to April, not to mention its’ high altitude with lifts rising to 2770m. With 35kn of pistes to explore in a quiet, compact and safe location there’s no doubt this an ideal option for school groups.  Beginners can benefit, in particular with the virtually empty slopes enabling them to grow in confidence before tackling the range of red runs available.

The village itself is set at over 1700m so you can ski all the way back down at the end of the day. The shops, cafes and thermal baths are just a short drive away (15km) and Sant Caterina itself has a natural ice rink to enjoy. And every week the Santa Caterina Ski and Snowboard School organizes the Guests’ Race and an unforgettable torchlight descent along the Cevedale slope.
