Ski Complex in Cimone
The largest ski center in the Tuscan-Emilian Apennines offers 50 km of slopes and a unique electronic ski-pass, slopes which are all connected to one another, ski walking, very modern lifts including a 6-seater ski-lift. And of course there are also three snowboarding parks, two kids' parks, and artificial snow. The complex gets its name from the highest mountain in the northern Apennines: Cimone, 2165 m high. At its foot there are the towns of Montecreto, Fanano, Riolunato and Sestola, which are located at the foot of the highest mountain in the northern Apennines: Cimone, 2165 m high, from which this resort gets its name.
This resort is the capital of adventure sports in the snow. At the snowboarding parks of Cimone – the Ninpha4All Snowpark, near Lago Ninfa, the Funpark Ossarotte, near Le Polle and the WC Area in the area of Pian del Falco – snowboarders can get a taste of pure adrenaline. Here both experts and beginners can get a taste of what flying through the air feels like. In Cimoncino di Fanano, there is now the Big Air Bag, an inflatable mattress where people can try out aerial evolutions without any risks, under the watchful eye of local ski instructors.
For those who enjoy more relaxing activities, you can experience the pleasure of immersing oneself in the woods along the two cross-country skiing trails that run through the natural setting of Lago della Ninfa (2.5km) and in Polle (3km) or along the dog-sledding courses. Or there are always walks in the woods with snowshoes or excursions on a quad. For those who love to eat, there are also food and wine events organized in the ancient towns and dedicated to local products.
New this year. At the resort in Cimone, there are many new things and activities, starting with the expansion of the artificial snow system. Slope number 19 near Le Polle will be dedicated to the Olympic champion Giuliano Razzoli. The inauguration will take place on December 22 when, in collaboration with the Emilia Commission, all the ski clubs of Emilia Romagna will be invited and ski passes for children on competitive teams will be free.
Next to the four seater lift of Cimone, there will be a new magic carpet lift for easy access to Baggiolara, the steepest slope of this area with a 650 meter incline. At Passo del Lupo, a snow-tubing slope will be opened. Also the area dedicated to snowboarders, Snowpark Cimone, has been expanded. There will also be two Kids' Parks open to all families at Lago della Ninfa and Cimoncino.
