A genuine Italian environment with a variety of skiing and forested runs.
On a sunny plateau above the Trentino valley, Folgaria is a well-established resort and an ideal location for school groups. With its authentic Italian ambience, Folgaria offers your group a fantastic ski experience, enriched with local culture. This resort shares its ski area with several smaller villages offering extensive terrain for mixed abilities. Snow quality is excellent and the resort boasts great snowmaking, top-notch piste grooming, and tree-lined runs.
Off the slopes, there’s plenty going on in Folgaria and the surrounding villages, including indoor ice-skating, swimming and traditional pizza nights. The resort’s pedestrianised centre is a safe place for students to explore in their free time, contributing to it being one of our most popular Italian resorts.
Novice skiers can get started on the nursery slopes, learning how to control their speed and make their first turns before taking their new found skills higher up the mountain.
Improvers and intermediates are looked after particularly well in Folgaria, with beautiful tree-lined blues and long reds which flow through the Ortesino, Fondo Grande and Costa ski areas. Encouraged by enthusiastic instructors, confident skiers have plenty of piste to play with, and have the option of connecting with the neighbouring ski areas of Francolini, Fondo Piccolo and Serrada.
