The Skiing


Only 95km from Verona Airport, the ski area Alpe Cimbra is in the Trentino region of northern Italy. Renowned for being a family-friendly and tranquil area, it has collected many awards and credits over the year: from ranking at the top of the national portal for ski resorts, to the official Bandiera Italiana awarded by the order of paediatricians for the safety and quality of facilities for children. Alpe Cimbra is made up of two main ski areas - Folgaria and Lavarone - with an efficient skibus service connecting the two.

Lavarone is a gem, with an excellent variety of slopes it is ideal for a mixed-ability groups and perfect for beginners with flattering easy-to-intermediate red and blue runs carving down through the trees plus a handful of testing blacks. Artificial snow can be produced throughout the entire winter sports resort and with fir forests and glades and cosy mountain huts for refreshment stops, a typical rustic atmosphere for skiing and snowboard is created.
