Getting There

This is a great break for mixed ability groups, couples and families. Beginners will love the wide blue runs, and more experienced skiers will enjoy the variety of over 100km of slopes to choose from. At just over an hour from Verona airport the relatively short transfer time is great for families, as is the hotel which offers a kid's play room and club to keep them entertained off the slopes. The 3 star Alpen Hotel Eghel is a modern hotel with heated outdoor pool and spa and a short walk or 2 min bus ride from the centre. Family rooms available on request, contact us for a quote

Folgaria (1,169m) is a surprisingly underrated ski resort in the Trentino region of northern Italy, just over an hour north of Verona and close to Lake Garda and the charming city of Trento.

The Alpe Cimbra ski area (1,200-1,850m), made up of the separate resorts of Folgaria and Lavarone, offers just over 100km of linked runs in total (74km in Folgaria, 30km in Lavarone). The two resorts are connected by a free shuttlebus between Bertoldi (Lavarone) and Costa (Folgaria) a distance of around 8km.

Around half the slopes overall are blue, making the area a great place for beginners and lower intermediates to learn and increase their confidence. More experienced skiers can enjoy the variety of runs that a ski area of this size offers. There are 4 black runs in total so hardcore thrill seekers should perhaps look elsewhere. Snowboarders and freestyle skiers can enjoy the snow park and boardercross slope.

Alternative activities on offer include snowshoe, fat bike and sled dog excursions, snow tubing for kids and ice skating at the covered rink in Folgaria, or the outdoor rink in Lavarone.

Après-ski

The pretty village of Folgaria is a lovely place to go for a stroll after skiing (if you can tear yourself away from the hotel pool and spa), offering shops, cafes and some lively bars - though midweek the nightlife is pretty low key.

If you have hired a car you might like to visit nearby Trento one afternoon (around 40 mins away), especially in December when the Christmas market is on.
