As an intermediate skier with beginner children, we had a fantastic time skiing and also sledging in Abetone. The slopes were varied and through beautiful scenery. Perhaps an advanced skier would find Abetone a bit limited as an area to ski.Abetone is not so touristic so I didn't feel as if I was being ripped off being a foreigner there. Maybe the only disadvantage of this is that there weren't many apres-ski activities throughout the place.
Btw Abetone is close to Pisa airport.

Having spent most of of my previous holidays in most resorts in Europe, it was a joy to discover Abetone where the people are genuinly most kind and not out to take advantage. I have been there when I have been virtually the sole skier on the slopes with clear blue skies and excellent scenery, though on the Public holidays it can get busy but nowhere near as bad as I found on the better known resorts in Europe. The lift system in the Abetone skiregion is so slick you rarely ever have to queue. The prices for the lift tickets are very reasonable and superb value in my opinion catering for all levels novice to advanced. If you, like me, enjoy skiing or hill walking in a beautiful setting with

I rocked up to Abetone because I was en route to the Dolomites from Rome and thought I'd give it a try. Talk about cold, it was minus 14 celcius with a wind chill factor I don't even want to talk about. There were icicles 25 cms long and they were horizontal (I have the pictures to prove it). All that said it's a small resort, very easy to get around with a nice variety of runs. This would suit the intermediate skier/snowboarder, the latter of which comprised at least half those on the slopes when I was there. They have some excellent modern chairs and, at the other end of the scale, the world's slowest (and smallest I'm sure) chair lift though it's fair to suggest hardly anyone uses the run
