Nivo-meteorological data from six daily recording stations located in the Italian Alps (three in the Piedmont Region, to the West, and three in the Dolomites, to the East), operating since 1991 and representative for quite large areas, have been analysed in order to point out nivometric regimes. The data gathered were also used to infer time and space distribution of parameters (thickness of snow cover, wind intensity, air humidity, amount of liquid precipitation and daily minimum, average and maximum air temperature) affecting skiability, and therefore influencing the touristic potential of alpine area.
