Music on the slopes and in the valley for the first three week ends of the month, lots of VIP and Christmas markets are the ingredients of the kick-off of the upcoming winter season.
Music vibes will make the official opening of the winter season in Val di Fassa a moment to remember for a long time. Already in November the valley was totally covered by white crystals, but December represents the beginning of the coldest season with the opening of the lifts – November 25 at the Ski Area San Pellegrino, December 2 at Ski Area Carezza and from December 6, all lifts and ski areas of the valley, together with the Sellaronda, will be ready to welcome skiers and snowboarders – enriched also by the music entertainment offered by RDS, one of the most famous Italian radios.

Here, on December 2 at 5.00 pm a light show will be projected on the forest close to the wellness center: the lights, animated by sound designer, create a colorful pattern, with music and melodies of nature, which will complete a unique Christmas melody. The light show will take place daily until January 7 (from 5.00 pm to 11.00 pm), but it is not the only event pumping up this winter. The music of RDS will also be entertaining people on December 9 and 10 at San Pellegrino, followed by the event on December 16 and 17 at Ciampac in Alba di Canazei, reachable with the new D-Line lift, on December 16 and 17.
