The Cimone ski resort offers tourism all year round.
In summer the towns at the foot of Mount Cimone become holiday destinations, in autumn the woodlands are visited by walking enthusiasts and by mushroom and truffle foragers. However, by the end of November, the resort is taken over by snow and winter sports fans, who flock to Cimone until after spring, making way for mountain bikers once the snow has finally melted.
Cimone in winter
The Cimone ski resort offers the largest ski circuit in the Tosco-Emiliano Apennines, with over 50 km of pistes, all inter-connected. The pistes are served by fast, modern lifts and all can be accessed using the same ski pass, without ever having to take off your skis.
The three sides of the mountain have skin runs for all tastes: long and wide, with difficult slopes and over 600 metres in altitude range for expert skiers; shorter and easier pistes for those who prefer a more relaxing day of skiing. (image)
The over 100 ski instructors in the resort are there to guide tourists through basic techniques right up to competitive skiing.
Particular attention is paid to children, with personalised courses for young skiers as well as the new, fully equipped baby-parks. Young skiers can avail of a modern snowpark, which has hosted national competitions, with permanent half pipe, fun box and big air structures, complete with all of the equipment necessary to accommodate the many riders.
But Cimone is not just about skiing! You can immerse yourself in the peace and quiet of nature on a range of snow shoeing routes. Plus there’s more sport and fun to be had with the ultra-modern Palaghiaccio ice-skating rink at the foot of Mt. Cimone!
