Safe, convenient and ideal for mixed abilities, this area is a school favourite
Folgarida offers everything for a great school ski trip – a large ski area, good lifts, terrific scenery, superb hotels and friendly people. We think it’s one of the best ski circuits in Europe, and it has been one of our most popular resorts for many years.
Our groups love the large, combined ski area with its efficient lift system, while the genuinely friendly locals create a welcoming atmosphere in town. A purpose-built resort, Folgarida’s shops, bars and après-ski amenities are all on hand, and your group can look forward to skating across the ice-rink and scoring strikes in the bowling alley down the valley.
A pine-fringed ski area with immaculately groomed pistes, Folgarida links with the purpose-built resort of Marilleva and the chic village of Madonna di Campiglio. Thanks to a handy microclimate, snow quality is some of the best here, and the resort’s north and east facing slopes hold their snow well.
Known for its gentle and scenic blue runs, beginners get great value from their lift passes, which cover the local Folgarida and Marilleva ski areas. Manageable moguls and the potential for huge mileage give intermediates plenty to play with and, with interlinking blues and reds crisscrossing the ski area, this is a perfect resort for mixed ability groups.
More advanced skiers can take on the challenging reds and blacks, with pretty tree-lined runs leading the way through stunning scenery of the Brenta Dolomites.
