The beautiful Val di Fiemme offers an experience guaranteed to have everyone yearning to return. Next year will be our 25th season working in Val di Fiemme which we are extremely proud of. Over the years our groups have enjoyed skiing on the superbly prepared slopes with the professional Scuola Italiana Sci, staying in some of the best group hotels in Europe, enjoying the wonderful Italian hospitality and marvellous cuisine.
North East Trentino hides one of the best ski resorts in the Italian Dolomites – the Val di Fiemme. Encircled by the picturesque Lagorai, Pale di San Martino and Latemar Dolomites the valley boasts one of the most snow sure ski areas in Europe. One ski pass covering a variety of ski areas offering over 160km of some of the best skiing in the Italian Dolomites. Each of the ski areas offers a very different skiing experience, but they all share the same high quality lift system (consisting mainly of chairlifts and gondolas) and pride in piste preparation that is often quoted as being the best in Europe. The majority of the slopes are over 1700m and this, combined with excellent snow making facilities, ensures great skiing throughout the season from December to mid-April.
Our hotels are situated along the valley with easy access to the ski areas. All are family owned & run and offer space for only one or two groups, accommodating the students in spacious rooms all with private facilities. The food and standard of service is first class and guests are always made to feel at home and part of the family.
The traditional valley towns of Cavalese and Predazzo have a relaxing alpine atmosphere and offer excellent facilities including swimming pools, ice rinks, discotheques and a variety of shops; and of course no visit would be complete without a visit to a Pizzeria and Ice Cream Café!
The Val di Fiemme is a truly inspiring place to ski and combined with the warm welcome from the locals you will be hard pressed to find anything better in Europe.
SKI CENTRE LATEMAR
Most groups begin their week at Ski Centre Latemar – the biggest area of the valley. The wide blue and red graded motorway style runs wind across five valleys of open and tree lined piste. Such is the effect of this area that our returning clients have begun to give the slopes their own names so if you want to ski the ‘Stairway to Heaven’ or take in the view from ‘Grappa Mountain’ just ask! Depending on your hotel location you will access the skiing from either Pampeago or Predazzo. Beginners will find gentle slopes using modern magic carpets at both areas before heading across the mountains to the progressive blues and reds. The tree-lined motorway slopes towards the Obereggen base offer good sheltered skiing regardless of the weather conditions. As confidence and skill develops skiers will head towards the top of the Tresca bubble express to enjoy the 4km run back to the Pampeago base or the 3.5km run down from the Gardone chair. Advanced skiers will enjoy the off-piste possibilities as well as the challenge of the black Pala di Santa piste.
Bellamonte really is the beautiful mountain. Beginners and intermediate skiers will love the long winding slopes of Bellamonte. Bellamonte offers one of the best ‘home runs’ in the valley on the 5.5km slide from the top of the Campo Laste chair. The more daring skiers will enjoy the challenging reds and blacks that drop down to Moena from the top of the Alpe Lusia. Of special note is the black Fiemme Oro piste that is used for race training by many of the local ski teams. Some days late in the season are so quiet that groups feel that this is their own personal ski resort and end up spending the whole week on these slopes.
For more experienced groups the slopes of Alpe Cermis near the main town of Cavalese offers a great choice of red and black runs, including a World Cup Downhill called ‘Olympia’. A great option for a day visit Alpe Cermis offers a change of scenery and slopes that will keep testing progressive skiers. Many of the slopes feature a counter-camber, which makes turning an interesting event. While concentrating on the skiing we must not forget the truly spectacular scenery on offer in the valley. The stunning mountain views are simply the best in Europe.
A small resort at the head of the valley but at the top of the scenery stakes. With the base at almost 2000m the views of the Dolomite Mountains are unbelievable. The resort is split by the main road with one side offering open rolling piste for that relaxed afternoon skiing that is need after taking on the more challenging rugged side of the resort. A must are the views from the top of the Sagantini and aptly named Paradiso chairs, one on each side of the resort but not to be missed.
