The US SKI TEAM is arriving to the skiarea Alpe Cimbra in Trentino. The words “Mountain of the Champions” used to refer to Alpe Cimbra couldn’t be more appropriate.
It is official; Alpe Cimbra ski area – Folgaria, Lavarone – is the new training centre of the male US SKI TEAM for the next 4 years. Theslopes Salizzona and Agonistica, the most technical of the ski area, will turn into their training centre.
The decision of the US Ski team is no coincidence. In the last couple of years, many World Cup teams trained here. The technical features of these slopes coupled with the optimal conditions of the terrain resulting from the professional grooming techniques of the ski lift company led to spread the popularity of the ski area as one the best destination for training purposes. Michael Rech, the President of the tourist office Alpe Cimbra, underlines that “hosting significant skiing international events – like the European Cup races and the Alpe Cimbra Fis Children Cup (former Mickey Mouse Trophy) – and hosting the training of important World Cup ski teams like – Italy, Austria and Sweden – has improved our awareness about what the destination needs to offer to the top athletes. In this sense our efficiency has increased.
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.
