Alpe Cimbra, a real gem in the Trentino Dolomites yet to discover.

Alpe Cimbra, is still an unknown secret and a real gem in the Trentino Dolomites.

People travelling to the Trentino Dolomites tend to go to Madonna di Campiglio or Val di Fassa, which are both great destinations – Madonna di Campiglio also share its slopes with Pinzolo, and Folgarida and Marilleva in Val di Sole.

Then Val di Fassa is connected to the Sella Ronda – a massive ski carousel of 1,200+ km of skiing around the Grupo della Sella massif. There are some little jewels such as San Martino di Castrozza, Andalo Paganella and Val di Fiemme (which we have produced a Must Read Guide). But Alpe Cimbra is not very renown in the UK and USA.

Alpe Cimbra is located in the Northern Italian Alps of Trentino. It is a different alternative to the better-known resorts of the Dolomites.

It is composed of the wide ski area Folgaria-Lavarone of 104 km of slopes and is ideal for skiers and snowboarders of all levels. Modern ski lifts, cutting-edge snowmaking system – guarantee to ski from December to April – and the quality of the slopes makes Alpe Cimbra very appealing.

The proximity to the main Northern airports such as Verona (1 hour), Venice (1 hour and 30 min away) and Orio al Serio-Bergamo (2 hours away) represents a significant additional value to the ski holiday allowing guests to ski down the Alpe Cimbra mountains in only 4.00 hours when departing from any London airports.

Alpe Cimbra offers many outdoor experiences to undertake like dog – sledding, fat – biking, snowshoeing, mountaineering, ice- climbing and horse – trekking. Not only outdoor, but also indoor activities such as discovering the local food and wine in stylish restaurants or romantic Alpine huts and chalets tucked away in the woods or on top of a mountain or visiting very detailed museums telling the history, culture and traditions of Alpe Cimbra.

Alpe Cimbra ski resort has been elected a preferred destination for families. This is due not only to the quality of the runs but also the comfortable and well-equipped baby park, ski schools, mini club and the themed ski runs. Contributing to the success of the area is the gentle and kind hospitality of tourist suppliers and the professionalism of the animation team.
