Folgarida Ski Resort

Folgarida is an attractive, purpose-built resort in the Italian Dolomites, with skiing linked to the network of slopes above Madonna di Campiglio.

The resort is a quiet, family-friendly base on the edge of the Madonna di Campiglio ski area. Folgarida’s local slopes are a nice mixture of blues and reds, but more advanced skiers will enjoy the steeper terrain on the Monte Spinale side of Madonna. A modern lift system links the resort to the rest of the ski area – indeed several new lifts have been built recently. And of course as we’re in the Dolomites you get that fantastic combination of spectacular scenery and great food.

There are few better places to develop your technique and that’s exactly what the four Ski Club Freshtracks Development Holidays are aimed at doing this winter. Come and join us and take your technique to the next level!

Folgarida Skiing and Snowboarding

As mentioned, the local slopes are ideal for beginners. There is a small beginner zone on the outskirts of town and another up the gondola at Malghet Aut. Above this there is great progression on to longer blues around Monte Spolverino. Intermediates will love the well-groomed and snowsure (the snowmaking system is very impressive) slopes that link Folgarida to Madonna – there’s almost 120km of them for you.

For a Dolomite resort, the Madonna ski area has more tough terrain than average – 22% of the pistes are rated black. The best are on Monte Spinale, but there are also good challenges more locally towards Marilleva. In good snow, the off piste can be excellent, particularly in the open bowls which can fill with powder after fresh snowfall.

  • Total Pistes: 150km
  • Blue: 33%
  • Red: 45%
  • Black: 22%
  • Lifts: 59
  • Altitude: 852m – 2504m

Folgarida Resort

Folgarida is a quiet, small resort with all the purpose-built convenience that you may have encountered before in France. Despite being purpose built, the resort is attractive as it’s been carefully designed to be in keeping with the traditional roots of the village and is under strict instruction from the surrounding national parks that no structures rise above the treeline.

This makes it an ideal family holiday destination, especially as it is located well away from the bustle of Madonna di Campiglio – don’t come here expecting raucous après. However, the best place to finish the day on the mountain is the shared terraces of the bars in Malghet Aut where you can rest your legs in a deckchair before heading down the mountain.
