Aprica is a friendly resort located near to Lake Como in Valtellina. It is a linear village spread along the valley with nursery slopes at village and on higher slopes. Aprica offers excellent skiing for school groups together with a variety of activities that include skating, swimming, bowling in Sondrio, pizzerias and plenty of shops and cafes to enjoy off the slopes.

The village has an excellent snow record opening from early December to late April each winter. 

The beginner slopes are close to the village, wide and uncrowded for early lessons with more challenging blue runs higher up as ability improves. Intermediates and advanced skiers are spoilt for choice with long reds, including World Cup pistes and some tricky blacks. There is a new 4 person-hooded chairlift that now links the 3 main areas of the Magnolta, The Palabione and Baradello.

An excellent choice for school skiing.
