hey ya'll, i've been trying to find out some good places to ski in Italy, preferably the Turino area but any info would be great. Anyone had any experience out there and tips for the best slopes, rentals (need skis + clothing don't want to bring the heavy gear from home) bars, and lodgings (pref. hostels w/o curfew or cheap hotels). I'm studying in Florence for a few months so I plan to take a train up there on a Thursday afternoon/evening and then ski Friday/Saturday and return Sunday.
