Alpe Lusia - San Pellegrino
Between tradition and modernity in the heart of the Dolomites
Moena (1184 m) is one of the most beautiful tourist resorts in the Val di Fassa, and it marks the perfect border with the nearby Val di Fiemme. It’s a lovely, very evocative village which stands out for the timeless elegance of the carefully preserved historical architecture in its centre. It’s no coincidence that Moena is referred to as the “Fairy of the Dolomites”. World class hotel accommodations feature a wide range of services. Furthermore, numerous events offer visitors options for an even more active holiday, including cultural initiatives, musical evenings and culinary events.
The ski facilities and fantastic scenic views in the Alpe Lusia/San Pellegrino resort are just a few minutes away by car or ski bus. Info: http://www.visitmoena.it/
PASSO SAN PELLEGRINO
Passo San Pellegrino (1918 m) is a wide Alpine pass located halfway between Moena and Falcade, a true winter sports and snow paradise. At this ski resort everything is within reach thanks to modern hotel facilities and convenient car parks with direct access to the lifts. The slopes are suited to everyone, from beginners to great skiing champions, and there is a well-equipped play park for kids.
The cross-country ski loop at the Centro Fondo Alochet is very popular, with tracks immersed in the splendour of the forests, and the SanPe Snowpark for freeski lovers and snowboarders.
Falcade (1100 m) is a charming village in the stunning Valle del Biois. It represents the Venetian side of the Alpe Lusia/San Pellegrino Ski Area, the arrival point for the famous lovers’ slope that boasts a long tradition as a tourist destination suited to families and children. A major attraction here is the cross country facility called Centro Fondo Pietro Scola, which winds around the well-known Piana di Falcade and is also set up for night skiing.
There is a lot to do besides skiing, like ice skating, snow mobile rides and snow-tubing. Art lovers should definitely visit the museum of the late local sculptor, Augusto Murer.
SORAGA DI FASSA
Soraga (1210 m) is considered one of the oldest settlements in the Val di Fassa and throughout the years it has renewed itself and grown into a beautiful location that maintains its peculiarly typical Ladino quality. The village is located on the slopes of the Monzoni. This is a kingdom of tranquillity and relaxation, where a growing number of enthusiasts can take fantastic snowshoe walks.
Nordic skiers will find plenty of tracks behind the hotels, while Alpine skiers can take a short bus ride for easy access to the nearby slopes at Alpe Lusia and Passo San Pellegrino.
