Skiing in Abetone

The ski slopes spread out between four linked valleys: Val di Luce, Valle dello Scoltenna, Valle del Sestalone and Valle di Lima. These valleys form one of the most beautiful, famous and natural settings of the Apennines. At 1,800 metres, on a good day, the pistes at Abetone really are great.

Starting from Selletta you can ski on the black slope of Sestaione and reach Foce di Campolino; or again from Selletta, ski on Monte Gomito's slopes and on those of Faitello before continuing on towards Val di Luce. From there you can go back up to Alpe Tre Potenze , a landscape recalling the Alps, nearly 2000m high.

It is also possible to practice long-distance skiing on two ring-shaped tracks that stretch for a total of 15km.

Other trails graded black are 'Rossa' number 5 and 'Nera' number 26 which is usually left un pisted so that mogul fields develop to make it still more challenging. Several blue and red runs including number 4 (Sassi Scritti) and 34 (Tre Valli) are treated the same way.

The famous slalom champion Zeno Colo is a great hero of the resort and there are three runs, Zeno 1, Zeno 2, and Zeno 3, honoured in his name.

It has moreover strengthened the snowfall using one hundred cannons.

You'll also find great runs for snowboarders in the Val di Luce where a series of ski lifts take you to the different sides of this enormous valley. The new Abetone terrain park, a state-of-the-art facility boasts half-pipe and three metre jumps for the pleasure and thrill of daring snowboarders.
