Prato Nevoso – The Perfect Prep School Resort

Last updated: Jan 30th, 2019

If you are looking for a resort for your prep school, look no further than Prato Nevoso. With great hotel accommodation, fantastic ski instructors and a wide range of après activities, this will tick all your boxes.


A smooth operation got us from London Gatwick Airport to Milan Linate and with our coach driver waiting for us in arrivals, we swiftly made the journey into the mountains, arriving at Prato Nevoso at approximately 8pm. Of course, the students were very excited and were not sleeping any time soon so we enjoyed our first meal together in true Italian style with lots of pasta! After an enjoyable meal we headed down to pick up our skis and boots. The organisation of ski fit was fantastic and credit to the Surf Shop who worked tirelessly to ensure all the students were comfortable and happy with their skis and boots. We returned to the hotel and it was now time to rest ahead of day 1 of skiing tomorrow.

A lot of excited children woke up ready for the first day of skiing. After breakfast, it was straight to the ski school meeting point to meet our instructors for the week, who were great. They were very supportive, encouraging and friendly, which made the girls feel comfortable.

As the days went on, the group were improving at such a rate that the beginners went down a black run on Day 2… Day 2!!! Unbelievable progress! The intermediates and advanced groups just got better and better, improving their ski style and even trying some jumps.

This is my second time in Prato Nevoso and yet again, it did not fail to impress me. Thanks to Rowan Prep School for a great week away – a combination of a great resort and a great group makes this one of the best ski trips I have ever been on.
