School ski holidays in FoppoloMagdalen Court School Ski trip Foppolo Italy

 

A traditional Dolomite ski village, great for beginners and early-intermediates. Very good value and extremely convenient.

Foppolo is purpose-built, snowsure and convenient, but because it was developed decades ago it’s nicely worn in and has a good atmosphere. The runs end in resort, right at the terrace of our hotel in fact, and there’s a 4 person chair right opposite!

Most of the skiing is above the trees on wide and uncrowded runs which are great for beginners but two considerable snow bowls provide exciting high level skiing for mileage hungry intermediates. Recent modernisations have added powerful snow cannons and converted drags to chairs. The lift pass includes Carona. San Simone, connected by ski bus in 15/20 mins, is a little purpose-built ski station with good runs for beginners.

Foppolo is friendly and unpretentious with a good mix of après-ski and shops. The original old village is about 10/15 mins walk down the hill and at the weekends a new chair lift links both parts. Foppolo offers enough to do in the evenings and it’s easy to supervise school parties. Magdalen Court School Ski trip Foppolo Italy
