Small Trentino ski village linked to Madonna di Campiglio, Italy
Folgarida resort guide - a general overview
Folgarida is part of the Trentino region which is made up of a number of ski resorts. We recommend ski holidays in Folgarida as we think it is a hidden jem. With its traditional style and easy access to the lifts from most of the hotels it makes for a convenient place to stay, whether for a weekend or a whole week. With only a small capcity for rooms (5,000 beds in total) Folgarida would suit those looking to get away from the crowds. This is a typically Italian resort where you won't find British skiers on a package holiday!
Folgarida has 60km of ski pistes and interlinked Madonna di Campiglio has 65km. Implemented in the 2012 season is a new link between Madonna and neighbouring Pinzolo which has added a further 25km of trails. So the total area of 150km of pistes creates a reasonably large ski area with something for all standards.
Pros and Cons
- Beautiful scenery
- Small and friendly village
- Beginners and Intermediates
- Mountain restaurants
- Those looking for nightlife
Folgarida Resort Restaurants
Most of the hotels in Folgarida offer excellent local dishes. However, if you want something a little simpler there are two good pizza/pasta restaurants; Al Soldino Dell' Imperatore and La Buca. Other restaurants to try are the Orso Bruno and the Malghet Aut.
Folgarida Mountain Restaurants
We recommend the restaurant Cascina Zeledria which can be found in the trees off blue run number 7 below Pradalago. At the top of Pradalago there is also a nice little resaurant called Viviani. Other restaurants we recommend are the Cinque Laghi and Malga Montagnoli which is in the lower part of Groste.
Folgarida Apres Ski
Not much to report here, except there are a few good bars which the locals and weekenders tend to use. In addition most of the hotels have their own in-house bars which are very comfortabe.
Folgarida is not for those looking for nightlife beyond an apres dinner drink or two.
