Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

Folgarida

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
Have done a few away days at Madonna di Campiglio when staying in Passo Tonale, and liked the area so have a group of 10 booked for Folgarida in January 2020. Staying in Hotel Caminetto.

Tell me everything you know about the area and village. Mountain eateries, bars etc......

Folgarida is very quiet, a dormitory village for the ski area. In addition to whatever bar is in your hotel the main apres-ski venue is the Eta Beta Bar which is right by the bottom of the gondola so convenient for a drink at the end of the ski day and as a rendezvous point for your group. There's a nice pasticceria and a pizzeria next to the Eta Beta, just a short walk from your hotel. Other than that, not much to do in the evening.

If you've stayed in Campiglio you probably know the ski area already. The Folgarida area is linked fairly seamlessly to the wider area, so I've always considered it a single area. It's an easy ski from the top of the Folgarida gondola across to the Campiglio side, perhaps 20 minutes. There used to be a lift queue bottleneck to return to the Folgarida side, but a new fast chairlift has improved that. The slopes directly above Folgarida are nice. The nursery area is at the top of the gondola and offers a good starting ground for any news skiers in your group. There's an easy black underneath the gondola back to Folgarida, and a couple of easy pistes (one red, one blue IIRC) down towards your part of Folgarida or the main part of the village.

Mountain restaurants are generally very good, one of my favourites anywhere is the Cascina Zeledria. Stupendous views from the panoramic window in the upper dining room. The Malga Vigo is also nice, with a large terrace and great views midway between Folgarida and Campiglio.

Whilst it's no where near as bad as it used to be when I was there year year, based out of Madonna there was still a huge scrum from around 3:30pm onward for this lift. Having said that it's a huge improvement to what it was like before it was replaced.

Wayne was still there this year and does a great job promoting the area

Folgarida has some nice variety of runs for beginner-to-advanced, don't think for an expert it would be massively challenging, even the (sort of famous) Nera di Folgarida is a nice black that my wife did few times and she's more an intermediate level.

The Hotel Alaska on blue 2 down to the gondola has a very nice piste side terrace grill and bar.
