New Additions for Folgarida-Marilleva
Folgarida-Marilleva is set to open on 29th November, weather permitting. Here we take a look at a couple of improvements that have been made to the ski area prior to the start of the season.
Snowpark – A new snowpark has been created in Marilleva. The snowpark covers a total area of 14,000m² and offers a range of facilities for freestylers and boarders, including a kicker area and terrain park. The snowpark is served directly by the Sghirlat lift and is suitable for both beginners and pros.
Lift – A new lift has been constructed to replace the previous lift which had been in operation for over 30 years. The Bassetta – Monte-Vigo lift will have a capacity of 2190 people per hour, which is 30% more than its predecessor. It will also seriously improve connections to Marilleva and Madonna di Campiglio, as the travel time has been almost halved, now taking just 2 minutes and 48 seconds to reach the top. This new lift should also relieve the pressure of increased demand created
This is already one of our favourite resorts and always popular amongst our school ski groups. It is fantastic to see that the resort management are committed to investing in and continually improving the ski area, as this can only be good news for the many school groups who love this area and return year after year.
