Italy best family ski resorts: Folgaria

italy best ski resortsItaly is not only famous for its artistic and cultural heritage or for its stunning sea. It has a lot to offer to mountain lovers too. Dolomites are part of the UNESCO heritage and are a must see in every season. Of course, during winter time till end of March, there is nothing better than playing in the snow! So, if you are looking for Italy best ski resorts, we have a few suggestions for you. Last month, for example, we went to Folgaria, just a couple of hours away from Milan. It is located in the Trentino region and is a perfect location for families looking for great slopes. However, you do not need to be an expert skier to have fun. In Folgaria, there is always something to do for everyone! And here’s there is out not-to-be-missed list!

1) Sledding at Folgaria

Sledding is a fun alternative to skiing, and can be enjoyed by the whole family! Folgaria has two sledding slopes, one in Costa and another one in Fondo Piccolo. They are served with an automatic ski-lift so you don’t have to carry the sled all the way up!

2) Baby Parks in the snow

In Costa, there is a small play area with inflatable games right next to the restaurant La Tana dell’Orsetto. In Fondo Grande, you will find a bigger Baby Park, called Monte Maggio, again with inflatables games and qualified baby-sitting supervising the kids. In Fondo Piccolo, they have just opened a third Baby Park, called Fun & Snow, also with inflatables and qualified supervisors; in case of bad weather, children will be welcomed in a beautiful indoor space.

3) Skiing at Folgaria

Have a go, even if you or your children have never tried! If you cannot ski, do book a few lessons at Folgaria Ski School. This is what we have personally done this year and it has been a wonderful experience. But I will tell you about the lessons later on. Right now, I want to tell you about the great slopes for kids that Folgaria offers.

Good beginners ski resort

by wanttoski

I took lesson at Sierra at Tahoe five yrs ago and yesterday at Donner Ski ranch. While Sierra at tahoe was ok, donner ski is very slope. While the instructor teaching, I fell down couple times at the learning area near the lodge. I did'nt have the courage to go up in a lift, as the mountain looked very steep. Can anybody advice the best ski resorts for beginners who are afraid of steep slopes. I am in Fremont, CA. Also some good website on skii lessons. Even video or book reference is also fine with me. I really need to learn skiing to teach my daughter.
thanks

Going to Tahoe....Try shasta first 4 beginners

by theMoveNStore

Good morning...[iceman] I am exp in this particular category because I myself went w/the kids and it was the first time for both my daughter and I.
We stayed at the best western [outstanding] and the staffs everywhere catered to us. We even went out to a french restaurant that night and the waitress promised to help the kids one on one the next day [no charge]
She was a Godsend. She showed the kids everything they needed to know to get on the slopes. She was an employee of the lodge also. The quaint alpine village ski resort is family oriented and caters to beginners. The view of shasta from the hotel,the country club and the lodge are awesomely inspiring
