The winter magic of the table-land is emphasized by the Skitour dei Forti: a 78 km long string of slopes, able to satisfy both the most demanding and less skilled skiers. First of all, it is able to give emotions from the magical sliding movement with skis on the feet in the middle of a vast space opening all around on the 360° wide horizon up to the highest Dolomiti summits.
Skitour dei Forti is divided into two basic centers - the Ski Merry-Go-Round in Folgaria and the Ski Center in Lavarone - that are not yet linked in the manner you do not have to take the skis off your ski boots (in any case, connection is ensured through the skibus service), but they are interlinked by a single ski-pass, consistent marketing and promoting policy and mainly by a common goal, leading to their further development.
THE MERRY-GO-ROUND NAMED FOLGARIA: what would you say to 60 kilometres of emotions?
Is literally as we say - we are able to offer you 60 km of emotions, naturally with skis on your feet, being serviced by facilities of the last generation.
The ski complex in Folgaria is the largest ski resort in the southern part of the Trentino region. It is only 18 km far from the Motorway Exit in Rovereto Nord (Motorway A22). The resort consists of a structured system of slopes and linking paths, mutually covered by the state-of-the-art, programmable artificial snow machines; just try these exciting ski centres, built between the remains of impressive fortifications of Austro-Hungarian armies in Sommo Alto, Cherle and Dosso delle Somme, ancient witnesses to the World War I battles that took place on the slopes of these frontier mountains between the Trentino and Veneto regions, in the land of wide views from the Adamello glacier to the Gruppo del Brenta mountain massif, from the Pasubia massif to Little Dolomiti, from Marmolada to south Tyrolean Alps in their entire breathtaking sequence - you will always keep this view in your heart! The ski centres in Folgaria are intended for skiers of all skill categories: from those who are getting ready for their first downhill run (there are five training slopes here) to those who are attracted by slopes for highly advanced skiers such as Salizzona (mythic red) and Martinella (black) in Fondo Grande, and Slalom Toll (red) in Serrada (where high sports-level races take place), or rather tourist-type slopes in Ortesino, Costa, Francolini, Fondo Piccolo and Serrada; this entire merry-go-round is offered mainly to skiers-tourists and families in general, therefore to all those who not only look for strong experiences but also fun and relaxation on the slopes.
Located near to this entire resort are naturally all services and refreshment spots, all in high quality and able to meet every requirement, such as mountain chalets, typical restaurants, and resting spots such as snack-bars and bars.
Lavarone Ski Center
The Ski Center in Lavarone stretches from Bertoldi di Lavarone to Malga Rivetta, just in front of the Vezzena table-land region.
The whole centre is situated in the middle of beautiful forests and meadows that open unexpectedly before our eyes, creating a charming natural scenery. From the "Tablat" slope and two school training slopes in the "Sonek" mountain, you may take the new red track serviced by the four-seater "Ust" lift to the Malga Laghetto-Rivetta center. Here you can find one of the most frequently visited tracks of the entire Skitour dei Forti: the "Avez de Prinzep" slope named after the Europe's highest fir, a genuine natural monument to be found a few steps from the Malga Laghetto slopes.
This slope with its 400 meters of altitude difference and almost 2 kilometre length will bring you impressions you will remember for a long time.
From the top of Monte Cucco, from the chair-lift terminal servicing the "Avez del Prinzep" slope, you may take the red slope to Malga Rivetta, where other two lifts start. On this 18 km long track you may drop in the typical wooden, comfortably equipped mountain chalets where you may taste typical regional dishes, or, if you wish, enjoy the sun and sunbathe in their sun parlors. Come and try all of this resort?s tracks by yourself - you will be pleasantly surprised by the beauty of their surroundings as well as by the quality of slopes that are perfectly serviced all the time.
