Skiing within Emilia Romagna
There are several world class ski slopes within easy reach by car, however the nearest slope to our main offices is to be found in Febbio. The town of Febbio is the last inhabited centre in the Val d’Asta. Lying at the foot of Mount Cusna, it is an ideal summer and winter resort. About 3 Km from Febbio in Rescadore are the ski slopes of L’Alpe di Cusna which are suitable both for beginners and experts. In the summer, Febbio is the ideal starting point for joining the dense network of trails in the Parco del Gigante that end up at the Italian Alpine Club refuge “Cesare Battisti” at Lama Lite (1760m).
However, Abetone is undoubtedly the foremost and best organized winter ski resort in the area. It lies 1400 metres above sea level and is near the border between Tuscany and Emilia Romagna.
