For in­de­pen­dent trav­ellers head­ing to the north-western Ital­ian Alps, the skiers’ stal­wart, Geneva air­port, is clos­est to some of the well-known re­sorts.

Turin is the bet­ter bet for Sauze d’Oulx (co­mune.sauze­doulx.to.it) and Cervinia, while Mi­lan is the clos­est op­tion for re­sorts such as Bormio (bormioski.eu).

For the Dolomites, the op­tions are more likely to be a drive through the Bren­ner Pass from Inns­bruck or a shorter trip from Verona, while re­sorts on the south­ern side of the moun­tains, in­clud­ing Cortina, are closer to Venice.

Many big­ger-name Ital­ian re­sorts pro­vide low-cost shut­tle ser­vices to con­nect with flights. Mades­imo (vis­it­mades­imo.it) is of­fer­ing free weekend trans­fers from Mi­lan air­ports now and next month.
