Ski & Snow: Skiing & Snowboarding
Val di Sole is part of the largest ski area in the western part of the Trentino region and its geographical position together with the highest mountains in the central and eastern Alps (Ortles-Cevedale, Adamello-Presanella and the Brenta Dolomites) are a guarantee of heavy snowfalls…
... and if there aren’t enough heavy snowfalls, snowmaking equipment covers 95% of all slopes.
...a true paradise, for skiers and snowboarders, that have the chance to ski up to a height of 3000 meters!
This ski resort offers guests various amenities: ski schools, snow parks both for kids and adults, rentals with the latest equipment and transportation services that will allow you to easily reach the lifts.
The longest ski run in the area: starting from Monte Spolverino all the way down to Folgarida
From the top of Monte Spolverino 2.092 m, ski down the slope with the same name that has an average difficulty level, and then follow the “Variante Provetti” black slope; then you will ski along an easy section at the Malghet Aut area in Folgarida, in order to reach the start of the renowned “Nera Folgarida” black slope, that will take you down to the centre of the Folgarida ski resort for a total length of 3.150 meters and a vertical drop of 792 meters.
The best slope in Folgarida: the Folgarida “Black” slope
The black slope in Folgarida was built during the summer of 1967, thanks to the expert advice of the renowned Technical Director of the F.I.S.I. National Teams at the time, Ermanno Nogler.
The slope was ratified for international competitions in 1969, then in 1996 the slope was expanded and in 1998 the slope was equipped with a lighting system along the final section, giving guests the chance to also try night skiing.
The slope is also equipped with the latest snowmaking equipment, to always provide the best possible conditions. It’s an extreme slope, with a vertical drop of 600 meters, and an average width of 35 meters, hemmed in by the surrounding forest: a challenging, adrenaline-filled descent!
Many skiing competitions have been held here, including the ISF Snowboard World Championship in 1999 and numerous editions of the “Trofeo Topolino” Snowboard Competition.
If you’re able to get to the bottom of this black slope all in one breath, then you definitely deserve a pat on the back!
