Ski in the Italian Dolomite’s resort of Folgarida

Departs Saturday 16th Feb 2008 Returns Saturday 23rd Feb 2008

The Folgarida Marilleve “ski-rama” is very simply one of the best ski areas in Europe.  The three separate ski areas of Folgarida Madonna di Campiglio and Marilleva merge together with fast  lifts to enable skiers to pass between them with ease.  If you are looking a big ski area with ultra-modern lifts and some of the best views on Earth this is the place to be.

The ski school is at the mid station – half way up the mountain – where the snow is always good so beginners will have no problems with poor conditions.  Complete beginners are normally able to move up to the top of the mountains mid week as there are very gentle green runs all the way back to the ski school from here.  For intermediates skier there are many, many blues and reds heading off in all directions.  If you are an advanced skier the off-piste is virtually limitless. Oh and if you are an advanced skier, and you’re up for it, there is a Black run down to Marilleva which is over 60o in places. Basically there is something for all standards here in of the largest ski areas in Italy.

Whilst most people will become quickly accustomed to most mountain scenes the views over the snow covered Dolomite is, by any standards, one of the greatest views available anywhere.  The snow covered needle-like structures glistening in the afternoon sun is a memory to savor – don’t forget your camera.
