Winter Ski & Fun

Roccaraso is one of the largest Italian resorts outside the Alps and offers a vast network of cross-country routes too. Roccaraso hosts large FIS events. It is the region's most established ski resort. Most established but happily not overdeveloped. It nestles pleasingly in a conservation area, meaning that the outlook from the slopes is unadulterated powder, and lush forest. This ski resort is situated only, a 25 minute drive away from Casa Soltau.


Roccaraso hosts:


66 ski runs - 28 Blue, 27 Red, and 11 Black runs.



  • The longest Red Run is 3 km long.
  • The longest Blue run 4.9 km long.
  • The longest Black Run 2.8km long.
  • The runs total approximately 100 km.


Supplying these runs are:



  • 27 state of the art chair lifts.
  • 2 cable-cars.
  • 8 surface lifts.


The snow on all but eight of the 66 runs are augmented by snow guns

Roccaraso is a well kept secret by the Italians. The resort is virtually unknown outside of Southern Italy. You will hear hardly any other language spoken other than Italian - although many of the locals speak English. The season - this year the season started in mid December and normally lasts until the end of March or early April. Roccaraso is the best equipped ski resort in the Apennines’. The town stands 1,250m (4,000ft) above sea level.
