Located in the Val Brembana, Foppolo is a purpose-built snow-sure resort with a reputation as an ideal choice for school groups.
The lift system in resort is well designed, meaning more time skiing and less time queuing. All drag lifts have now been replaced with chairlifts making moving around resort even easier. The slopes are normally fairly uncrowded here during the week, so supervision of your group is easy. Snow conditions are also very reliable.
Foppolo is one of the unsung resorts in our programme but we rate it as one of our best value packages. With great variety of skiing, a reliable snow record, uncrowded slopes and slopeside accommodation it’s easy to see why.
Foppolo has a good offering of evening entertainments including swimming and iceskating.
Ample nursery slopes help beginners build confidence and there are plenty of wide runs ideal for practicing. A variety of medium runs will satisfy the more experienced skier and a considerable snow bowl provide high level skiing for enthusiastic intermediates.
