Formazza Valley

Centro Fondo Formazza

Skiing in the silence of the woods

12km of slopes giving onto a beautiful view of the hamlets of the valley

The track runs along a path that allows skiers to admire the view of the valley with its typical Walser houses, while still enjoying the silence of the woods around them.
Starting in San Michele and going towards Fondovalle, and then returning to the Centro Fondo, the track is ideal for people who are learning to ski; the track to the north, that goes through the towns of Ponte and Valdo, is more technical and can be fun even for more expert skiers.
