Ski Area

The Pal / Arinsal ski areas offer early skiers the best possible confidence building start on the wide gentle slopes at the top of the La Massana or Arinsal gondolas where magic carpets await the 1st time skiers. In no time the students will have their ski legs and will be heading up to explore the long blue runs radiating from the Pla de la Cot above La Massana or the Pic Negre (2560m) in Arinsal. Spectaular confidence building runs through the trees that the experienced instructors will use to improve technique before trying out the more testing red runs above the tree line from the Pic del Cubil on the La Massana side and the Pic Negre in Arinsal, all runs offering stunning views across the valley.

Flexible yet compact

The resorts are joined by a 50-person cable car so more advance skiers should be able to ski both areas in the same day and explore the more testing black runs from the Pic Alt de la Capa & Pic Negre.

The Arinsal area offers all levels of slope in a more compact area meaning that you will always be able to see how your pupils are developing and making it perfect for younger groups and party leaders who prefer a close supervision environment.

With one of the best snow records in the Dolomites, and state of the art snow making, snow cover is almost guaranteed over the whole 150km ski area and bad weather won’t disrupt your skiing as the tree lined slopes offer plenty of shelter to keep you skiing.

The Ski Area

The Skiarea Campiglio Dolomiti di Brenta (Madonna di Campiglio/Folgàrida/Marilléva/Pinzolo) has runs at all levels of difficulty. From long, wide gentle slopes to challenging tree-lined runs, there is something for everyone and is the perfect resort for school groups.

Perfect for beginners…

Beginners will enjoy the easy access to the gentle slopes on the edge of the village and the great progression on to longer blue runs radiating down from the Pradalago and Passo Groste peaks. The fabulous tree lined slopes make for an excellent teaching environment and students will soon be chasing onto the long red runs on Cinque Laghi & Monte Spinale areas before testing their ski legs by exploring over towards the Monte Vigo peak. From Monte Vigo skiers start above the tree line and sweep down the wide panoramic slopes into the trees towards Folgarida and Marilleva.

… and for Advanced skiers

To the south the resort of Pinzolo offers slopes to suit all skiers but more advance skiers will be itching to try the Tulot Audi Black run – at 2.6km with up to 70% incline – a true test for all skiers. Adrenaline hunters are well catered for with the highlights being the Canalone Miramonti World Cup Run in Cinque Laghi; the Schumacher Streif from Monte Spinale and the black-diamond Amazzonia from the top of the Pradalago cable car not to be missed!…

Unforgettable experiences

Italian Ski resorts have a charm and life of their own. Skiing in Italy is packed with special experiences that will provide you with unforgettable memories. Often, skiing in one part of Italy, the Aosta Valley for example where French is the main language, and skiing in the Sud Tirol, where German is prominent, is like skiing in two different countries.

The food too varies along the regional languages and cultures. One aspect that does not change however is Italy’s innate friendliness, and the easy-does attitude towards life.
