A purpose built ski area perfect for beginners. Offering great value is the charming resort of Foppolo that we think is a real gem for school groups. The compact and safe ski area offers true doorstep skiing which is particularly suited to beginners but still offers plenty of intermediate and advanced runs for the more experienced.
Accommodation in the heart of resort
The village is situated at an altitude of 1600m with skiing above 2000m making this a good choice for reliable snow cover throughout the season. With Superbly located accommodation next to the new chair lift, and doorstep skiing, life is made easier. For groups with their own coach there is also the opportunity to visit San Simone, 8km away, which is covered on same lift pass, bringing the total skiable terrain to 65km. Off the slopes there are some great après ski activities, it’s possible to visit shops, restaurants, bars, a swimming pool, natural ice skating rink and of course a traditional pizzeria!
“Foppolo is good for school groups, small, but plenty of slopes for every ability”
