Skiing in Cavalese
In total Val di Fiemme is made up of five resorts - Alpe Cermis, Ski Center Latemar (Alpe di Pampeago, Predazzo, Obereggen), Bellamonte/Alpe di Lusia, high altitude snowsure Passo Rolle and the small area Lavazè/Oclini which together offer more than 100 km (63 miles) of slopes for alpine skiers served by 45 lifts. An integrated network of ski buses free of charge allows everyone to get around without difficulty from one corner of the valley to the other.
Skiing on the local Alpe Cermis area is accessed by a a two stage 8-person-per-cabin gondola lift that was installed to replace the cable car that was destroyed by a low flying US fighter plane in a notorious incident in 1998.
Much of the terrain is on a sunny (but north facing) plateau above the treeline and suited to beginners and intermediate skiers. Howqever there are challenges to be had, including the 2km long Olimpia II black with its 33% gradient. All of the 24km of slopes locally have snowmaking coverage, the longest run back down to the resort is 7.2km (4.5 miles).
There are several marked ski tours to enjoy in the area. The Forest of the Violin skiing tour from the Paion 'rifugio' on Alpe Cermis where you not only have a wonderful view on to Latemar and the Sella Group, but also on to Marmolada and the Pale di San Martino. The thick forest of the mountain slopes of the Fiemme Valley is also a wonder to see. Some 300 years ago in the Paneveggio Forest the Stradivari family from Cremona searched for mature samples of hazel spruce for that right quality of resonance. From this wood the Stradivari violins were fashioned, each one a masterpiece in its own right, which are played to this day by the finest of musicians.
Cross country skiers also have plenty to entertain with 150km (nearly 100 miles) of marked routes in the Valley. There are two dedicated cross-country centres at Passo Lavazè (an altitude centre at 1800m) and in Lago di Tesero next to the resort.
Val oli Fiemme hosts in 2013 for the third time the Nordic skiing world championships.
