Bergamo airport - family ski resorts (surprise trip) recommendation?

Managed to find some good flights in Bergamo – I'm a non skier, my husband and eldest 2 are snowboarders and the little one (5yrs) skis. I'm thinking of booking it as a surprise 3 night break for my husbands birthday. Can anyone advise on resorts no more than 2hrs (pref less) transfer.

As a no skier a pretty resort would be nice, and no requirement for a car to drive to the slopes.

Any ideas or resort names very welcome then I can research them (whilst he's at work!)

We do love après ski and hence usually go to Austria but the flights are pricey – if anyone has knowledge of places with some life shout up!

Many thanks in advance
(Thought I'd post it here and in general chat)

Yo will struggle to get much that close to Milan-if you got 3hrs you will get to bormio which has good slopes and lots of things to do for non skiers-it's is a proper town, not just a ski town and has the roman baths and husky dog sledding etc!
Aprica is a bit closer but I never skied there (I lived in bormio for a season)

Hi Daisy,

I think your best bet would be to fly into Turin , where all the ski resorts are no more than an hour and a half drive away.
