Hotel Villa Emma
- Half board
With views of the surrounding hillside and mountains, you’ll be itching to get out and explore the ski area.
This family-run hotel has been managed by the Aldrighetti family ever since they transformed their small house into the beginning of the Villa Emma in 1967. The hotel has an authentic and traditional alpine style throughout having been renovated in 2003. Their attentive nature and hope that you have a great holiday truly comes across in everything they do.
The alpine style continues into the rooms, with lots of natural woods. Each room has all the necessary facilities including a TV with UK channels. After a day on the mountain, grab a drink and relax in the cosy bar and lounge area, or, if you’re really looking to soothe those achy muscles after a long day of skiing, the wellness area is perfect.

Canazei di Fassa Resort Info
Canazei is on the Sella Ronda circuit, giving 175km of pistes to cover. Most of it caters for intermediates and, with the aid of improved lifts, the whole domain is easily accessible. Canazei itself is quite large, but maintains its charm and traditional appeal. The local skiing is easy, but all the slopes rely on one lift from the village and this can create queues. There is one run back down, but that can often be closed due to a lack of snow. The village itself has decent accommodation (hotels and chalets), a good range of shops, bars, clubs and restaurants - après-ski can be lively. One slight failing of the smaller Italian resorts is a lack of foreign language spoken in ski schools and Canazei is no exception. The childcare available is also fairly minimal.
Overall, Canazei is a less well-known resort that offers good lower ability skiing on the Sella Ronda and plenty to do off the slopes. Verona has the nearest airport, two and a half hours away.

Snow Overview - Italy (snow news updated 04-Dec-2017)
Loads of fresh snow has fallen upon our featured Italian resorts this week. Thursday 27th April was a day of limited access powder skiing in Val Senales (0/110cm) and Livigno (83/115cm). Both resorts received between 35 and 45cm of fresh snow in the past 12 hours and well over half a metre in the past 24 hours. With limited options to ski below 2500 metres it is worth noting the currently very high avalanche risk further up the mountain.
Conditions on snow are excellent, however, the prevailing weather is still offering very poor visibility and at time strong winds gusts. Current cloudy/stormy weather seems set to continue into the weekend, although the heavy snowfalls should start to taper off over the next 24 hours. The weekend should offer a chance to score some excellent last season lift accessed powder.
European Weather Outlook
Across the central European Alps, snow and cold temperatures are forecast to stick around until Saturday. Accumulations of snow on the upper slopes could be huge for the time of year, with some Swiss resorts predicting around 80cm over the course of today and Friday. By the weekend the snow is predicted to subside in many regions and a mixture of sun and cloud is expected for much of Austria, France, Italy and Switzerland.
In the Pyrenees, Saturday should be the pick of the day for any skiing in Andorra. Our featured resorts are now closed for the season, but for anyone strapping on their skins, you can expect a mixture of sun and cloud, with temperatures around +3C
In Germany, 44cm of fresh snow is being forecast for Garmisch (0/380cm), who will be in disbelief at the moment for all the snow they have received of late.
Further north you can expect temperatures of around -3C and snow showers in Norway, which are set to continue right through to Sunday for resorts such Trysil. Across the border in Sweden, the weather should be fairly similar, but any snow that does fall is likely to be light and bring only 1-2cm.
Despite some recent biting temperatures and cold winds in the UK, any snow that does fall on the Scottish mountains is most likely to be on Thursday. Thereafter, rain could destroy any hopes of some late season turns.
