Val di Fiemme, what playful snow
Oct 11, 2017
Five sledding slopes, 4 ski kindergartens, 6 fairy-tale parks on the snow, 2 walks in the footsteps of dragons and gnomes, one Zecchino d’Oro week. And kids free from 8 to 12 years (based on the period).
Val di Fiemme is truly playful. Stretching across the Dolomites of Trentino, its gentle and winding ski slopes evoke wonder and laughter. It loves children and knows how to amaze them with games, nature, snow, and ski.
The fun begins upon arrival in the hotel. Among enchanting panoramas in the Val di Fiemme, there are 3 ski kindergartens, 5 sledding slopes, 3 snowboard parks and 6 amusement parks for sledding, bobsledding, and tubing. There’s even a toboggan run, the Gardoné Alpine Coaster, that slides through snowy woods among curves, loops, and jumps. Family Hotels guarantee a week full of relax, with spaces, activities, and comfort thought out for the tiniest guests and appreciated by Mom and Dad. The most magical weeks (offer Magic Ski Weeks), offer ski pass, hotel, ski school and ski rental FREE, for kids up to 12 years old.
The Alpe Cermis, Ski Center Latemar, Bellamonte-Alpe Lusia, Passo Rolle, and Passo Lavazé-Oclini ski areas offer 110 km of ample slopes with perfect snow conditions. Along 150 km of downhill slopes, kids ski in the tracks of some of the best nordic ski champions.
Among fir forests and along the Paneveggio Natural Park in the Pale di S. Martino winding snowy trails let you follow the tracks of deer, roes, and foxes.
Every day the Valley organizes free activities to help kids get close to snow-covered natured thanks to wooded outings with snowshoes, Nordic walking poles, Nordic skiing and mountaineering. All of this included in the Trentino & FiemmE-Motion Winter Card.
5 SLEDDING slopes
1 – Children spend an entire day sledding on the Fraina slopes in the Bellamonte-Alpe Lusia ski area. The long slope, extended by 300 meters, lets you sled for 2 km and conveniently reach the top by loading your sled onto the brand new Bellamonte 3.0 cable car.
2 – At the Latemar Ski Center there’s the notorious Obereggen sledding slope, 2.5 km long and illuminated in the evenings on Tuesday, Thursday and Friday from 19.00 to 22.00.
3 – Also at the Latemar Ski Center at the Epircher di Obereggen there’s Absam, the new sledding slope 750 meters long, serviced by a new mountain lift, the modern Laner telemix. In fact, the old Laner chairlift was substituted with a lift with chairs (heated) as well as gondolas. While experienced skiers can quickly reach the slopes from the chairlifts, sledding lovers and kids can be transported conveniently and securely with the gondolas. The new Obereggen lift is equipped with chair lifts with six seats and gondolas with 8 seats.
4 – At the Gardoné ski area in Predazzo, there’s a 500-meter long sledding slope and also the Gardoné Alpine Coaster toboggan run that offers kilometers of exhilarating loops and curves in total security.
5 – At Alpe Cermis there are two 200 meter slopes, one for sleds and the other for tubes, that can be found in the paradise of fun Cermislandia. Next to Cermislandia, there’s the new Campo Ski School.

WALK along the footsteps of dragons and gnomes
On the slopes of Ski Center Latemar in Predazzo, some gondolas wear scales and claws to reach Gardoné. They have been painted thanks to the children’s project "Friends of Dragons" on the Latemar Mountain. Upon arrival at the Predazzo-Gardoné cable car, you can walk along the "Dragon Forest" ring road. Among the fir trees and the larches, you can find dragon wings emerging from the snow, mysterious "arcofalene" suspended between the branches, a magic well, hollowed out trees, a giant dragon's nest, but also rock engravings announcing the return to the earth of the dominators of the sky. All works of land art were made of materials from the woods. Kids can complete the "Find a Dragon" mission by following the clues from a fun game (even in English and German). The beaten path on the 1.5 km ring trail lets you immerse yourself in the fairy-tale forest.
SEARCHING FOR GNOMES
At the middle station on the Bellamonte cable car, in addition to the Fraine sledding slopes, you can book a winter excursion searching for the footsteps of the legendary gnomes of Ballamonte (cell. 346 3639538).
