Folgarida

A ski tour to Italy

Skiing in Italy has everything you need and more! The Views – The Snow – The Food – and The Friendly Italians!  Perfect for school groups the relaxed resorts in Italy have long running ski schools who speak fluent English, perfect pizza pit stops, and lots of fun activities where teachers can sit back – relax and know the students are having fun.

RESORT​-

Folgarida 1300, Folgarida 1400, Marilleva and Madonna di Campligio make up this ski area. With over 180km of mixed slopes offers schools the best verity of skiing possible. Such verity helps beginners find their ski legs and get the most out of their ski lessons during their trip. The modern lift system links the resort to the rest of the ski area, but most importantly as we are in the Dolomites, you get the best scenic views for the perfect Ski Trip Pic!
