Madonna di Campiglio, Italy Ski Resorts | Ski and Snowboarding Resorts | Scoop.it
Campiglio's abundance of long and laid-back blue and red runs has constantly been popular with snowboarders, making it one of Italy's prime boarding destinations and resulting in the creation of the first terrain park around two decades ago.
Athena Goodlight's insight:

Campiglio is appropriate for beginners and young families: the slopes, like the clubs, are seldom chaotic, almost one-half of them leisurely blues and all brilliantly maintained by a first-class system of grooming and several hundred snow blowers.

Skiing and Snowboarding in Morzine, France

Skiing and Snowboarding in Morzine, France | Ski and Snowboarding Resorts | Scoop.it
Morzine is a genuinely residential ski resort, and its multiple chalets and restaurants are usually family-owned and appropriately intimate as a result.
Athena Goodlight's insight:

Families tend to favor Morzine for several reasons: its ease of access from Geneva implies no patience-testing transfers need be endured, while skiing novices are well served by a huge number of less dramatic pistes and there are fantastic children's daycare facilities to keep little ones out of trouble.
