The Polsa-San Valentino-San Giacomo Ski Area
The snow of Trentino is not far away!
Polsa - San Valentino - San Giacomo, the Ski Area of the Brentonico highland, just a short trip from Lake Garda. The perfect destination for families thanks to the numerous Ski Camps and Snow Parks that guarantee plenty of fun for all.
Trentino boasts a truly amazing range of landscapes. The mountains crown and define numerous valleys, each with its own unique characteristics.
The Brentonico Highland is a favourite with families. Its ski area stretches across the northern slopes on Monte Baldo and is just 20km from the Rovereto Sud exit of the Brenner Highway. The Polsa - San Valentino - San Giacomo ski area has a total of 8 ski lift facilities (of which 3 four-seater chairlifts, rope tows and magic carpets) that allow skiers to descend particularly wide and safe slopes, all of which are regularly serviced by snowmaking cannons and with splendid views over Lake Garda and the Brenta Dolomites.
For some winter fun for children, there are three well-equipped baby parks and ski camps with magic carpets. In San Valentino it’s also possible to go ice-skating.
The Italian Ski School of Monte Baldo offers instructors specialised in teaching beginners.
For those who don’t ski but love snow all the same, there are plenty of alternatives, such as snowshoe treks through the Monte Baldo natural park. This vast protected area contains an extraordinary biodiversity thanks mainly to the various terrains and altitudes that vary from a couple of hundred metres to elevations that exceed 2,000 metres above sea level.
For fans of Nordic skiing, the Cross-Country skiing Centre at San Giacomo di Brentonico offers about 20km of groomed trails of varying difficulty. On Tuesday and Thursday evenings the trails are illuminated, allowing skiers to enjoy a bit of skiing after sundown.
New practice slopes in Polsa, with snow games and a bob and sled piste equipped with a treadmill. The Montagnola and Polsa runs have become longer, wider and more scenic. On the Montagnola piste, you can ski at night on Tuesday and Saturday, thanks to the Polsa Ski Nights that continue until late at night, with music in the mountain hut. In the ski area, on the Momo piste, you can also try Fat Bikes, Telemark skiing, whose vintage features are much appreciated by the lovers of this technique. Another novelty is the Dual Ski Adaptive Skiing Equipment, made available by the ski school for people with disabilities.
As for cross-country skiing, the San Giacomo-San Valentino ski area offers floodlit slopes from Monday to Friday and also the chance of doing biathlon.
