Snow in Appennino Bolognese

Mappa Piste

Skiing, snowboarding, sports and pure adrenaline. That's what the Corno alle Scale ski area offers, where you can enjoy skiing on the longest slope in the Apennines (2,600 m). The resort looks like a large natural amphitheater that fans out from the 1945 meters of Corno alle Scale to Scaffaiolo Lake.

Because of these characteristics, Corno alle Scale is the ideal place for families and children as well as for athletes and ski clubs, which up here can find the ideal environment for training. Finally, the racing sector is particularly significant, thanks to the presence of the Slalom Stadium, perfect for races. At Corno alle Scale you will be able to find 11 slopes of which 5 are blue (suitable for beginners or those who are advancing), 4 are red (of medium difficulty, suitable for skiers who are already experienced) and 2 are black (suitable for experienced skiers with high technical skills).

More than 80 percent of the slopes are served by snowmaking systems. Starting this year, Corno alle Scale is the first Carbon Neutral resort, thanks to a project offered by Piquadro Group aimed at offsetting all emissions from the operation of ski lifts and artificial snowmaking. The tons of CO2 have been offset through certified carbon credits generated by a high-quality reforestation project, fully controlled by Carbon Credits Consulting , which affects the tropical forest with the most biodiversity in the world (the Cerrado in Brazil) generate multiple co-benefits such as the recovery of degraded land, restoration of biodiversity and native forest, and improvement of the quality of life of local communities.

Skiers attending Corno alle Scale can take advantage of two very simple and convenient online services to purchase ski passes. The first is available on the Corno alle Scale website (Ski passes, rentals, ski school and mountain hotels | Corno alle Scale). The purchase of the ski pass can be done directly from the smartphone. In case the customer already has a Snowit card, simply enter the card number at the time of purchase...... and he/she will be ready to ski. No lines, not even to pick up a new card. The second is by using the TelepassPay app.

Again, purchasing the Skipass is fast and intuitive: by opening the Telepass Pay app, you can define the number of people (maximum 4) for whom to request the service, and the Skipass will arrive directly at home, or it can be picked up at the Punti Blu or affiliated establishments at the station. It will then be enough to associate the Skipasses with the names through the app and bring them closer to the turnstile reader at the lifts to start skiing.
