Skipiste Vitelli: SLOW-SKI in Faloria.
The Vitelli slope is dedicated to SLOW-SKI, a new way to experience skiing which is all about taking your time and savouring the moment. The slow mood of skiing encourages frequent stops along the piste to admire the splendid scenery of the Dolomite peaks.
It is not coincidental that Faloria chose to dedicate its most scenic slope, the historic track which hosted the Giant Slalom races during the 1956 Winter Olympics in Cortina, to the Slow Ski movement.
The slope, which is fun and varied, is immersed in breathtaking nature, far away from refuges and lift facilities. A relax area has been developed at 2150 m altitude, with benches where skiers can enjoy the magnificent views of the majestic Mount Cristallo and the beautiful Lake Misurina with the legendary Three Peaks, in the background.
The slope is divided into two parts; Vitelli Alta (upper), a black level run (difficult), and the Vitelli Bassa (lower), a red run of medium difficulty. The start is at an altitude of 2356 m and the slope has a total length of 2920 m, with arrival at Pian de ra Bigontina at 1744 m, and a vertical drop of 612 m, average slope gradient 23% and max gradient 51%. From Pian de ra Bigontina one can descend to Rio Gere either on skis or by chairlift. Starting this season, all those who seek a more relaxed way to ski are cordially invited to experience the Slow Ski spirit on Faloria’s breathtaking Vitelli slope.
