Alpe Lusia San Pellegrino: the pure pleasure of unforgettable panoramic views across a 100-km landscape
Cross-country skiing in the woods, modern and super-equipped ski lifts and accommodation facilities suitable for all budgets.
The Alpe Lusia San Pellegrino ski area is a paradise highly suitable for family outings.
Two different ski resorts, both of which are small jewels within the area of the Dolomites extending from the San Pellegrino Pass to Moena and Val di Fassa, will be perfect destinations for those who love authentic mountain settings.
Alpe Lusia San Pellegrino is a highly popular resort chosen by younger people, who will find everything they are looking for in this area offering 100 kilometres of ski-runs.
In numerical terms, the ski zone has 23 ski lifts, 3 snow parks, various toboggan runs and 30 kilometres of cross-country ski tracks. During the winter season, at venues close to welcoming mountain lodges and in wonderful alpine settings various themed events are held which attract tourists from all over the world.
For those who want to spend a lot of time skiing the first point of reference is Moena, a small picturesque town in the Trentino district where the cultural heritage and traditions of the Ladin people remain evident.
Local hospitality and a strong interest in food and wine are almost proverbial characteristics.
The heart of the ski area
With its modern lifts and perfectly groomed slopes Alpe Lusia is just a few kilometres away.
There are two ways to reach this ski area: you can follow the road that connects Moena and Passo San Pellegrino or start off from Bellamonte in the Val di Fiemme area.
The pistes are suitable for all requirements and levels of preparation. There are also some “black” slopes that descend towards Località I Ronc: the “Piavac”, considered fairly difficult, and the “Fiamme Oro 1” route.
For the little ones there is a Baby Club service provided by the “Moena Dolomiti” Ski School.
For those who want to enjoy the mountain air and panoramic views the most spectacular points are along the Catinaccio, Sassolungo, Pale di San Martino and Latemar mountain ranges.
The wide San Pellegrino Pass offers high-altitude ski tracks extending into the territory of the Veneto region and more technically challenging trails crossing the Col Margherita area.
The Col Margherita peak is situated halfway between Moena and Falcade at an altitude of 1,918 metres. Several ski schools are available in this area and one can engage in a variety of alternative activities, such as sledding or simply walking along the trails.
There are also some freeride routes, including a track called La Volata. This piste, very definitely falling within the “super black” category and one of the most recently established in the district, is ready to host increasingly important competitions.
If you’re not really into skiing, you might consider other activities
There is always a good reason to explore these areas, most of which are practically unspoiled.
Apart from off-piste excursions, you might try the snowshoeing experience, getting a lot exercise and travelling across marvellous snowbound landscapes.
And then, of course, during the summer months a walk through these alpine settings would be a splendid idea.
