These are two comfortable, fast lift facilities that provide everyone with easy access to the summit, where you can admire unique views and set off to discover the history and geology of the Dolomites.

COL MARGHERITA CABLE CAR LIFT
from 24.06.2017 to 17.09.2017 (hours: 09.00 – 12.30 / 14.00 – 17.30)

COSTABELLA CHAIRLIFT
from 25.06.2017 to 10.09.2017 (hours: 08.30 – 12.50 / 14.00 – 17.30)

From easy walks to excursion hikes that follow traces of the Great War; from visiting mountain dairies to tasting typical local fare in our lodges; from cycling to mountain bike rides, in summer Passo San Pellegrino also offers plenty of options for spending a fun vacation between sports, entertainment, relaxing and  taste.

The main news in summer 2017 is Col Margherita Park, which is perfect for young and old. Here you can enjoy discovering all the secrets of the Dolomites, which were declared a UNESCO World Heritage in 2009 for their beauty and contours which are unique in the world. This is a learning project designed and developed in association with the MUSE Science Museum in Trento and Doctor of Geology Claudio Valle, as a playful approach for imparting scientific notions on the history and geology of the Dolomites through a route featuring 3 different installations that are easily accessible with the Col Margherita cable car lift.

A stellar line-up for the 2016 Val di Fassa Bike http://www.passosanpellegrino.it/estate/en/a-stellar-line-up-for-the-2016-val-di-fassa-bike/ http://www.passosanpellegrino.it/estate/en/a-stellar-line-up-for-the-2016-val-di-fassa-bike/#comments Mon, 05 Sep 2016 13:36:02 +0000 http://www.passosanpellegrino.it/?p=6180 If you are a true mountain bike fan then be sure not to miss the 2016 edition of the Val di Fassa Bike being held on Sunday, September 11th, in the lovely town of Moena, in the Val di Fassa, just a 10 minute drive from Passo San Pellegrino.

There are lots of champions lining up for the start. These include marathon World Champion Tiago Ferreira, the phenomenal Colombians Leonardo Paez and Jhonatan Botero Villegas, who scored a fantastic 5th place at the Rio Olympics, Russian marathon champion Alexey Medvedev, the Czech Under 23 champion Jan Vastl, Colombian Diego Alfonso Arias Cuervo, Germany’s Andreas Kleiber and the young Dane Alexander Laugesen.

Meanwhile, the women will feature Austria’s colour bearer Christina Kollman, who will try to defend the title she won last year from fierce competition by Elena Gadoni, Maria Cristina Nisi, Mara Fumagalli and Costanza Fasolis.

The race will take place on an entirely new route: 48 km of sheer thrills, with the legendary climb on Le Cune and no less than 10 km of enduro downhill. It will be a ride featuring plenty of fun stretches, where even the more technical sections, which have been added to make the challenge more compelling, can be accomplished by athletes with less training.

He knows that in the Passo San Pellegrino can find the perfect terrain to train, breathe fresh air and relax in a peaceful, familiar atmosphere. Nowadays he feels like a “local” among these mountains, where everyone welcomes him with affection and sincere friendship.

“I love it here, I couldn’t ask for anything more; it’s the perfect place to prepare for a race as demanding as the Tour de Francesaid Nibali. “And since we’re superstitious, we are always happy to come back, because we have built a great deal of our success right here on these climbs.”

#Freeridesocialmeeting: focus on photography and social media http://www.passosanpellegrino.it/estate/en/freeridesocialmeeting-an-event-centred-on-photography-and-social-media/ http://www.passosanpellegrino.it/estate/en/freeridesocialmeeting-an-event-centred-on-photography-and-social-media/#comments Wed, 09 Sep 2015 10:37:11 +0000 http://www.passosanpellegrino.it/?p=6066 The weekend of the 11th -12th -13th September will be the last one in the summer of 2015 where lift facilities will be operating to take visitors to the summit at Passo San Pellegrino, a wide alpine pass located among the Val di Fassa Dolomites.

Mira4tourism, the company that manages the Hotel Monzoni, has created a very special event for the occasion, called #freeridesocialmeeting: three days in the company of expert photographers and social influencers during which tourists and enthusiasts will be able to further their knowledge of the world of photography as well as participate in various photographic sessions as both actors and amateur photographers.

The active shots will definitely be the most fun because, even though winter is still a ways off, subjects will be photographed doing typical snow sports like skiing and snowshoeing. Special guest stars will be the Specialized brand Fatboy Trail, special bikes with wide tyres that make it possible to float on the snow.

The program has been developed with the participation of Mattia Bonavida, social collaborator for Nikon Italia. One of his pictures was selected for a photographic exhibit held at the Louvre in Paris in July 2015.

The new Falcade-Le Buse cabin lift on display at Passo San Pellegrino http://www.passosanpellegrino.it/estate/en/the-new-falcade-le-buse-cabin-lift-on-display-at-passo-san-pellegrino/ http://www.passosanpellegrino.it/estate/en/the-new-falcade-le-buse-cabin-lift-on-display-at-passo-san-pellegrino/#comments Mon, 31 Aug 2015 11:52:54 +0000 http://www.passosanpellegrino.it/?p=6052 In early December the San Pellegrino ski area will welcome the new Falcade-Le Buse cabin lift, which sets off from the district of Molino (1199 m asl) to take skiers to the summit (1883 m asl) in just 6 minutes, so they can more rapidly access the slopes in Falcade and Passo San Pellegrino. The lift will feature 8-person cabins and will cover a length of 1890 m, with an altitude difference of about 684 m and an average incline of 39.4%.

If you missed the promotional road tour which touched down in the major beach resorts of the Triveneto, from Chioggia to Lignano, just climb to the top of Passo San Pellegrino to get a live look at the prototype for one of the cabins. You can get on as if you already had skis on your feet, sit and admire the scenery and perhaps even take a souvenir photo #cabinoviaFalcade.

The cabin lift being built in the San Pellegrino ski area will be one of the best new features of the Dolomiti Superski 2015/2016 winter season.
