I'd avoid it for now if I were you. We were there on Wednesday and both our skis were damaged by pebbles which had worked to the surface. It was particularly bad at the top of the Stella Blu button lift. Hopefully, more snow soon.

Roccaraso has snow with about half the runs open. Freeze thaw conditions so not the best but more snow predicted mid week.

We skied at Monte Pratello today.  The runs are fine but all around is mud and rocks.  Fingers crossed for another dump before it all turns to slush.

Went up to Mamma Rosa today, passed through Passo Lanciano, no one there everything closed Mamma Rosa the same, all the slopes were very bare, will need a massive dump to open at all this season. The road from Mamma Rosa up to the antennae was almost clear, there were a couple of snow blowers in the process of clearing away the drifts up to the Refuge!
