Ski holidays in Folgaria

Folgaria is a charming, typically Italian town on a sunny plateau above the Adige Valley with spectacular views around the Lavarone mountain range in the southern Dolomites. The interlinked ski area can be accessed from several points just outside the village and all are connected by the efficient free bus service (Mon - Sat).

With wide, open easy slopes Folgaria is the perfect place to learn to ski. Novices will start on the gentle runs at Francolini, which is well linked to Fondo Grande and then on to Fondo Piccolo so beginners progress quickly to the tree lined blue and even red runs. The excellent ski school ensures that beginners move on with confidence to the higher slopes. Intermediates will find the area well connected and the ski pass also covers the nearby areas of Lavorone and Luserna.

There are also several black runs for more advanced skiers off-piste excursions from the top of Passo Coe are available. Even non-skiers will find plenty to do with a well-equipped sports centre and local cultural attractions. After a busy day on the slopes join in with the Italians for the evening stroll down Folgaria's delightful main street for some window shopping. There are plenty of cafes for delicious cakes and wonderful Italian coffee or several bars and restaurants serving aperitifs and local specialities.
