Folgarida may have been ‘purpose built’ but it’s far from a concrete jungle. In fact, 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 local secret is frequented mainly by Italians and you will be hard pushed to hear an English accent which gives the resort an authentic air. For more information on Folgarida, please visit the Folgarida Resort Page.
If you require ski hire there is a SkiSet close to the bottom gondola station where you receive the usual Ski Club member discount. If you would like to pre-book your ski hire please visit the SkiSet discount page on our website.
