In a fantastic location right on the slopes is the modern Park Hotel Folgarida. This luxurious hotel offers plenty of great facilities for an unforgettable skiing holiday. The spacious rooms are modern, and well furnished with a TV and a nice bathroom. Directly next to the hotel is a beautiful practice slope with lift for children and beginners. The new cabin lift is reached via a blue slope that runs directly past the hotel.
To unwind after a long day, the hotel has a large indoor swimming pool. Looking to further relax? In the spa area you will find a sauna, Hamman, Jacuzzi, solarium and a gym. For an additional cost there are also beauty treatments available.
Folgarida is a small and traditional ski village, located in the sunlit ski area of Val di Sole. The village consists of several districts, and from each district there is a lift leaving the extensive ski area where you will find plenty of beautiful ski runs through the trees. Due to its high location and the many snow cannons, it is a very snow sure area. On the edge of the slopes you will find many charming restaurants, the perfect place to enjoy a local pasta meal with a red wine.
Folgarida is not particularly famous for its apres ski scene, however you can definitely enjoy at top night at the Dream Pub. Many of the hotels in the area have their own animation with different shows for guests.
Shopping and Espresso bars
In the village you will find some fantastic restaurants, pizzerias, bars and shops. In the afternoon we recommend that you head to Madonna di Campiglio. This mouth- watering village is especially popular with Italians, and there are several squares with restaurants, espresso bars and boutiques. Lovers of craft products will be in heaven with the many stores.
Val di Sole is a beautiful, charming sunlight ski area. It is especially designed for experienced skiers and snowboarders due to its many steep slopes and off piste possibilities. On the side of Marillèva a chairlift and a gondola lift takes you to a number of delightful wide blue slopes leading through the forest. For advanced skiers be sure to check out the Nera Folgarida, which leads back to the valley from the Folgarinda gondola lift.
Val di Sole consists of several beautiful ski resorts, such as: Madonna di Campiglio, Folgarida, Marilleva and Mezzana. When you stay in Folgarida, Marilleva or Mezzana you can book the ski pass for the restricted area Folgarida / Marilleva, which gives access to 60 kilometers of piste or the larger, extensive ski pass Campiglio / Dolomiti di Brenta. With this extensive ski pass you also have access to the beautiful ski area of Madonno di Campiglio.
