Amazing Scenery

Nestling in the dramatic Trentino Alps, the pretty Italian resort of Folgaria is a jewel to discover!

Take A Break From The Slopes

Folgaria Winter

Whoosh with delight as we master the snow-plough, perfect parallel turns or face moguls without fear - whatever your skiing ability, a week away with us is bound to put a smile on your face!

Experience the laughter of learning with expert tuition at ski school, ski at leisure or explore the uncrowded slopes. In the evenings, dine together with an included evening meal and share stories of the day’s events. We even include dinner out at an alpine lodge, complete with snow-cat transportation.

Ice & intrigue

Varied architecture, winter landscapes and charming traditions envelop Folgaria. Here in the province of Trento, along with Lavarone and Luserna, we are at the heart of the ‘Skitour dei Forti’ - a ski circuit with a pole firmly planted in the past. Fortresses dating back to WWI dot the horizon and hint at times gone by in this quaint pocket of Italy.

Something for everyone

Although evenings here are low key and relaxing, there’s plenty to do during the daytime! Perhaps try your hand (and thighs) at Nordic walking, snow-shoe walking, or go for a spin at the local ice skating rink. As well as downhill slopes for skiing, snowboarding or even snow-blading, there are crosscountry trails to explore if we so choose. Fancy something more leisurely? Relax on a sleigh ride or kick back and watch the world go by over a steaming plate of fresh pasta and perhaps even a glorious bombardino drink...

Ski transfers are free with a valid lift pass and ski equipment can be left in the rental ski shop, near the lifts.

 

Club Hotel Alpino

Our small and friendly family-run hotel is located within the village centre and is a short bus transfer to the ski lifts (transfer is free of charge with a valid lift pass and ski equipment can conveniently be left each evening in the rental ski shop, near the ski lifts).

Useful Information

Transfer Time
The transfer from Verona Airport to the hotel is approximately 1 hour 15 minutes, depending on weather and traffic.

Skiing Programme
You may either take group ski lessons, private ski lessons or form groups to enjoy exploring the slopes together. Whatever you preference your Tour Leader will be available to help organise your skiing.

Ski Hire
Poor piste conditions can be hazardous to ski equipment as uncovered rocks and stones can easily scratch and damage skis and snowboards. We strongly recommend you inspect your ski hire equipment at the start of your holiday and agree the state of their condition with the ski hire suppliers, as clients are responsible for the care of their hired equipment and should this equipment be damaged the ski hire suppliers are within their rights to ask for a compensation payment.

Ski Equipment
This can be hired in the resort where you will be advised about the most suitable equipment for your standard of skiing. It is very important to have ski boots that are comfortable and fit well, so do not be afraid to keep going back and changing your boots until you get a good fit. For your safety, we advise that you wear a ski helmet wherever possible.

Ski Passes
6 day adult €165 + €5 refundable deposit approx

Ski School
5 days €170approx (subject to sufficient English speaking ski school numbers)

Ski Hire
Skis/boots/poles: €85 approx per week

Dress Code
On a skiing holiday, dress is generally very informal, the emphasis being on comfort and warmth. We recommend that you pack a pair of skiing trousers and warm ski jacket or a waterproof shell and separate fleece lining or an all-in-one ski suit. Thermal or silk underwear is recommended. Cotton/cotton mix roll necks, T-shirts or sweat shirts; several thin layers are better than one thick layer. Ski socks, ski gloves or mitts and a hat or headband are suggested. Where temperatures are expected to be well below zero, take a facemask or balaclava. Moon boots or waterproof walking shoes are a “must”. Suntan cream (high protective factor), lip salve, sunglasses and/or goggles are all very useful items to pack. Casual clothes are ideal for the evenings; it is unusual on skiing holidays to dress formally in the evenings.

Gratuities
We suggest a Group Collection to cover transfer drivers, and hotel staff of €20 per person. Your Tour Leader will collect this on your behalf and distribute it accordingly, thus relieving you of the burden of who, when and how much to tip. The tipping of housekeeping will be left to your individual discretion (a small amount left in your room on departure should cover this and would be much appreciated). As is customary, ‘the hat’ will be passed around for the driver and guide on all optional excursions. For any meals that are not included in your itinerary, or taxi fares, your Tour Leader can advise of an appropriate % add on. If you choose to have ski lessons, you may also like to thank your ski instructor at the end of the week with a token of appreciation.
