The Alpe Lusia – San Pellegrino ski resort lies between Val di Fassa and Val di Fiemme, right in the heart of the Dolomite mountain ranges – a UNESCO World Heritage Site – in Northern Italy.
The ski resort is one of the 12 ski areas of the Dolomiti Superski, one of the largest mountain resorts in the world.
The Dolomiti SuperSki covers more than 1200 km of slopes, among Val di Fiemme with about 100 km of slopes covering 5 of these stations, and each of these stations includes 2 or 3 cities.
Val di Fiemme covers 5 of those resorts with around 100 kilometres of pistes:
– Ski Center Latemar – with access from Pampeago, Predazzo and Obereggen.
– Alpe Cermis, with access from Cavalese.
– Alpe Lusia, with entrance from Bellamonte – Castelir or Moena.
– Passo Rolle – connects San Martino di Castrozza, Carosello Delle Malghe, Colverde and Prà Delle Nasse
– Jochgrimm Passo Oclini
In Alpe Lusia – San Pellegrino, there is more than 30 km of slopes suitable for any level of skiing, all connected by eight modern ski lifts located between 1,367 and 2,340m above sea level.
From Moena, in the Fassa Valley, the ski resort extends along the Alpe Lusia towards Bellamonte, part of the Val di Fiemme.
The slopes on the north side of Moena are more challenging and more thrilling. First, there is the famous Piavac slope. Its initial part is considered one of the steepest in the Dolomites and is a magnet for experienced skiers.
Also, the view over the mountain group of Catinaccio is simply astonishing.
On the Bellamonte side, the slopes are easier, broader and sunnier, being very popular for families and beginners to winter sports.
Alpe Lusia is well equipped with a ski and snowboard school, equipment rental, a baby club, a snow park with halfpipe and ski jumping, and cross-country trails around Bellamonte.
When I went to the area, my friends and I chose to stay four days in Predazzo (read more here) as the town has easy access to the slopes of the Latemar Ski Center (read more here) and other ski resorts in the region.
Each day we went to a different ski resort: on the first day, we went to the ski slopes with access via Predazzo and the next day via Obereggen (read more here) and on the third day, we chose Alpe Lusia.
As I don’t practice winter sports, I went to the top to take some pictures, but unfortunately, the weather got dreadful as soon as I arrived.
I no longer had any visibility, so I went down to Chalet Valbona while my friends were snowboarding. Which was a shame, as I would have liked to go down to Bellamonte’s side, but anyway…
When they arrived at the restaurant, we had a cup of coffee to warm up, and then they continued to ski, and my other friend and I went to the charming town of Moena (read more here), which is about 10 minutes from Alpe Lusia.
