Overall Guide : There are no useful tips. I have been spending my skiing holidays there for many years, (although my holidays are shorter now). In Folgaria the atmosphere is "warm", the pistes are great and the hotel where we stay is very... more welcoming.

Overall Guide : Great ski resort, wide choice of ski slopes of varying difficulty. Very quaint historic centre. Various alternatives for non-skiers: the great indoor stadium and the Ice Palace. Casual and friendly
