Prato Nevoso (or Pratonevoso) is a ski and holiday resort in northern Italy. It is located at 1480 m above sea level, in the province of Cuneo, Piedmont, within the municipal boundaries of the comune of Frabosa Sottana, of which it is a frazione, some four kilometres south of its centre.
The fast work of building and the low initial costs of the flats promoted spurred tourism, as well as the presence of the A6 Turin-Savona motorway (enlarged during the 1990s). The fast building did not follow any principle of organic urban program, and buildings were born in the complete architectural anarchy.
As well as winter sports, the resort is popular with cyclists and has been the finish of three stages of the Giro d'Italia:
