Skiing in Pinzolo, one of the best winter holiday destinations

The ski season is here and it’s time to plan our holiday week. One of the most popular tourist destinations is Pinzolo, located in the Val Rendena and specifically in the province of Trento in Italy. The village is reached by taking State Road 239 that leads to Passo di Campiglio Campo Carlo Magno. Pinzolo is the main town of the valley, for its great location, a grassy plain between the Adamello Group in the west and east of the Brenta Group.

For skiers and skateboard lovers there are over 150 miles of trails, all equipped with efficient lifts. In addition to that, for the winter of 2011/12 a ropeway connection between Madonna di Campiglio and Pinzolo has been completed, which allows you to reach the ski district up to Folgarida Marilleva? The gradient of the slopes reaches a maximum of 700 meters, but those who love speed can try the black run Grual, which reaches 500 meters with a slope of 150 meters. At the foot of the track is Brentapark, the meeting point for snowboarders with obstacles and jumps for beginners and freestylers.

Cross-country skiing becomes more enjoyable and fun if you can do it in the beautiful woods of the Adamello Brenta, to alternate paths for snowshoeing, an ancient and exciting means of transportation. Adults and children can have fun with skating in the modern ice rink Pinzolo, where you can also play hockey, broomball and curling, or experience the thrill of traveling by dog sled (dog sledding in summer becomes the Dog Walking ). Reserved only for the more experienced and daring, climbing on frozen waterfalls of the Brenta Valley, Vallesinella, Nardis and Lares gives very strong and intense emotions. The snow is gone? Fear not, Pinzolo during summer offers countless possibilities for entertainment and fun, from hiking through the valleys and mountain pastures, to trekking up the mountain bike (there are many good cycling tracks and dirt roads).If you want to know more about Italian cities and Sicilia then visit
