ON SNOW EXPERIENCE
With plenty of long cruising blue runs and guidance from local instructors, Folgarida is the perfect location to help you improve your technique and take you skiing to the next level. Your six days on snow will be a mix of instruction and exploring the area with your Club Leader where you can put what you have learnt into practice.
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 pushed to hear an English accent which gives the resort an authentic air.
This intermediate heaven stretches right over to Pinzolo, down the valley from Madonna di Campiglio. It has lots of cruisey blues and rolling reds with a few challenging blacks thrown in for good measure. For more expert runs, best to head to Marilleva for some challenging woodland runs and or the Nera 1 black run. You could also try out the Madonna di Campiglio for Europe’s largest board park, home to World Championship events.
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.
You will be staying in the Hotel Alaska located in the heart of the Brenta Dolomites. Hotel Alaska is a ski in ski out hotel with great food and hospitality, and views overlooking the surrounding mountains. Spa facilities include a hot tub, sauna, and Turkish bath. Guests can relax on the terrace, and benefit from free storage space for ski equipment.
