The snow is still slow to come, but the Ski Area San Pellegrino is ready to open the last two slopes that have yet to make roll call: Le Caviette and the Nuova Cima Uomo.
These two runs are highly appreciated and popular with skiers who regularly come to ski between Passo San Pellegrino and Falcade. Both slopes will be skiable starting this last weekend in January, with the weather forecast predicting great conditions featuring sunny days and temperatures that won’t be too rigid.
The Le Caviette slope is the easiest way to get down from the summit of Col Margherita (2514 m) to Passo San Pellegrino. It’s a run that is really suited to everyone, which meanders easily for about 2.5 km, keeping to the right of the steeper and more challenging Col Margherita and La VolatA slopes. This means that even less experienced skiers can enjoy a scenic descent along the slopes of the Col Margherita without having to use the cable car lift.
The Nuova Cima Uomo, on the other hand, completes the offers at the Gigante/Cima Uomo ski area, offering skiers the chance to test their mettle on a slope that is a favourite among the Italian National Ski Team champions who come here to train. It’s a very dynamic black run that starts at the base of Cima dell’Uomo, at an altitude of 2458 m, and descends towards the area of Chiesetta del Passo San Pellegrino with panoramic views of Col Margherita. This slope has hosted several Absolute Italian Championships and the Winter Universal Competitions in 2013.
The opening of these last two slopes confirms the fantastic commitment shared by all the ski lift operators in the Ski Area San Pellegrino to offer all the best to avid ski enthusiasts in spite of a lack of natural snow.
