Skied this Christmas at Canazei, they had had a lot of snow but it was becoming packed. Had some more while we were there and it was fab. We loved the skiing, despite every run being a red, whether they are steep or undulating. Sella Ronda was fab, very well signposted. I liked Corvara, but Arabba seemed to get the most snow. Canazei is quite quiet over Xmas, apparently it gets really busy from 27 Dec onwards.
Ski school was very good, had heard Italian ski schools didn't speak much English but my son ended up in a group with two Danes, a Dutch lady and a single Italian lad! and he really enjoyed it.
Stayed in a great B&B about two mins from the cable car, Garni Al Viel. Highly recommended, and great equipment from Peak Sport, right next to the cable car. Prices on mountain were a bargain compared with last year's trip to Meribel. Definintely going back.
