Even though I prefer ski touring over ski resorts, I found myself reserving a week of ski holidays in Folgarida. My little enthusiastic skier and snowboarder needs ski pistes and kilometers and kilometers to practice her skills and her style. So we can then search for powder high up on sunny, quiet mountain side.
We have lots of Ski Resorts in Slovenia ( I ll write about this in another post ) but when going off for a week it is usually Italy, France or Austria we choose. Folgarida is a small resort close to well known ( and well charged ) Madonna di Campiglio. The closest bigger town is Trento. Folgarida – Marilleva ski area covers about 60 kilometers and reaches up to 2180 meters. It is great for kids or beginners, there is lots of easy and intermediate pistes and family friendly activities. My little one learned snowboarding there, so Folgarida will always have a special place in our memories. Proud snowboarding momma 😉 I think we managed to ski all possible routes, catching the first morning lift up, enjoying the first hour of quiet, empty slopes and sweet sun.
Here are the pics that will tell you much more than my words:
