Ski Complex in Cimone
The largest ski center in the Tuscan-Emilian Apennines offers 50 km of slopes and a unique electronic ski-pass, 26 slopes which are all connected to one another, ski walking, and 21 very modern lifts including a six-person automatic lift. And of course there are the snowboarding parks, kids' parks, and artificial snow.
New this year. The Snowboarding Park "Ninfa4all" has an even better set up this year. This park is an integral part of the 50 km of interconnected slopes that can be accessed with a single pass so you can alternate between downhills and jumps or acrobatics on the ramps. There are many structures set up along the slope such as jumps, rails, and step-ups for all levels. It is an ideal area for all freestylers, freeriders, freecarvers and racers, for beginners and experts alike. The slopes and the pipe can be reached using lifts and magic carpets, and every run can be done without too much effort and always accompanied by music.
Among the other surprises, besides the rechargeable electronic card, the Cimone Skicard, the snow blowing system has been improved again and will allow these slopes to be the first ones with snow.
Skipass prices. A skipass on weekdays costs €27 while on holidays and weekends it costs €34. The seasonal skipass costs the same as last year: €656 for adults and €435 for kids. New this season is the Cimone Skicard, the personal electronic card which allows you to access all the slopes of this ski center without going to get a ticket, and you can put money on it online from a tablet, smartphone or pc. The card costs €3 and never expires. You can put money on it on the website www.cimonesci.it. So you can get out of your car and hit the slopes without waiting at all.
Deals in 2015-2016. Those who wish to dive into the pre-Christmas winter atmosphere will love the event "Welcoming Winter" in Sestola, from December 6 to 8.
