Since 2012 the independent ski resorts Madonna di Campiglio, Pinzolo, Folgàrida and Marilléva have been connected to form the largest ski area in the whole Trentino region: Campiglio Dolomiti di Brenta. The new gondola between Pinzolo and Madonna di Campiglio offers outstanding views of the Brenta Dolomites and opens a whole new world of skiing possibilities on over 150 km of perfect slopes. With only one ski pass you can discover the beauty of one of Italy´s largest ski areas.
The whole area is connected with 61 modern, fast ski lift systems that can transport 31.000 people per hour. The three lift companies can issue three kinds of lift passes: their own pass, the pass for the ski area (Folgarida-Marilleva, Madonna di Campiglio and Pinzolo) or the Superskirama pass, created a few years ago.
Marilleva itself has 30 km of slopes, 21 lifts and offers great skiing possibilities, particularly for intermediates and beginners. Two large tourist areas, offering an wide range of services, give direct access to the ski runs, the "Val Panciana-Marilleva" Snowpark and the "Biancaneve". On the predominantly blue ski slopes cheerful music will accompany you and increase the holiday feeling, but professionals will also find black slopes, such as the "Nera Folgarida", at 1.8 km in length. Special highlights are the illuminated slopes and the "Orso Bruno", one of the most beautiful runs in the region.
Over 55 km of cross-country trails are waiting for you in the whole ski area. In the town of "Vermiglio" (approx. 20 km away) is the longest trail (approx. 10 km) and is of intermediate level. If you want to go higher, don't miss the high-altitude trail at "Passo Tonale" (5 km) at nearly 1,900 m!
Marilleva is separated in the lower town Marilleva 900 and the higher part Marilleva 1400. As the name already suggests, the towns are located 900 and 1400 meters over sea level. The higher, Marilleva 1400, is located in the middle of a beautiful pine tree forest. The town mainly consists of hotels and entertainment facilities that are carefully positioned in between this natural paradise. Nevertheless the main reason to visit Marilleva are the outstanding skiing and snowboarding possibilities. The hotels are mainly positioned right next to the lifts and offer comfortable transportation.
Marilleva 900 is the more typical alpine village, positioned next to the beautiful river "Noce". Here you will find traditional restaurants and a lot of sport options, such as taking long walks through the breathtaking valley or Hinking.
Non-skiing activities can be enjoyed at the ice skating rink, a tennis hall or the ice stadium in "Folgarida" and in "Mezzana". Or, you can explore the snowy mountain landscape on snow shoes. Recommended are day trips to the somewhat larger resort Malè (approx. 20 km away) and the world-famous ski metropolis Madonna di Campiglio (approx. 35 km away). You can also enjoy traditional culinary food in one of the numerous restaurants.
Marilleva has a recreation and sports resort that is located on the banks of the Walnut River down the valley, which is also the venue of the world canoeing championships. You can find further restaurants, bars, spa-facilities and entertainment possibilities in close by villages such as "Madonna di Campiglo" and "Folgoria".

In the ski area "Folgarida-Marilleva" there are 2 snow parks. In the resort Marilleva lies the "Alternative Snowpark", which is located right next to the mountain hut "Malba Panciana". Just as in nearly all the other Italian snow parks, this one is also tended to with lots of dedication and therefore it is a popular refuge for all adrenaline junkies. With the 6-person gondola "Malga Copai-Panciana" you can easily cross the entire area, which is fenced off with security nets.
300 m² of area, dotted with various obstacles, such as different boxes and rails, as well as various kickers and a quarter pipe, offer a special experience especially for pros. Although the park was opened not too long ago, it is already included in the list of hosts for competitions and festivals. You will surely not be bored here!
