San Pellegrino Pass, located right on the border between Trentino and Veneto, can be reach from Moena by following the trunk road that, after "Ronchi" (departure point of Alpe di Lusia cabin lift), winds upwards for 7 km up to the alpine pass at an altitude of 1,919 metres.
A ski area where everything is within easy reach: 3 and 4 star hotels right on the slopes equipped with wellness areas, sport and souvenir shops, rentals, ski schools, ski pass offices, mountain huts, refuges, traditional restaurants with panoramic terraces, baby club services, après ski, a well-equipped cross country centre and a superb area reserved for snowboard and freestyle enthusiasts, the Sanpe Snowpark. From the pass, the large 96 passenger cableway, designed by Pininfarina, ascends in a single span to Col Margherita peak. After feasting your eyes on the panorama, you can tackle the almost 3 km long descent to the lift’s departure or gently ski down to Falcade, pointing to the artificial lake of Cavia and to the Pale di San Martino.
The pass is a popular destination among non-skiers as well. In the Fuciade hollow, days pass by with snowshoes excursions and horse sledging, but also kindergartens, where kids can play between one ski course and another.
The Falcade (Valle del Biois) ski area is the natural extension of San Pellegrino towards the Veneto/Bellunese part of the Alpe Lusia-San Pellegrino ski resort. It is located at an altitude of 1,200 metres and surrounded by some of the most suggestive and fascinating scenery in the Dolomites. Peaks belonging to Marmolada, Cime d’Auta, Civetta, Pelmo, Cime del Focobon and Pale di San Martino group creates the stunning background of this small resort. Thanks to the cableway, inaugurated in 2015, and to four modern automatic coupling chair lifts you will be able to directly ski from Falcade to San Pellegrino Pass. The long slope called the "Innamorati" (Sweethearts) running gently downhill from the top of Col Margherita to the village, alongside the woods of the Paneveggio Natural Park, is the last relaxing run of the day. On the whole, Falcade ski area has 6 lifts and, as the Alpe Lusia-San Pellegrino ski district, offers pistes of different levels of difficulties. The resorts can boasts a total amount of 70 km of skiable slopes, always kept in perfect condition thanks to an efficient artificial snow-making system.
Col Margherita Freeride Park: the park offers the opportunity to enjoy fresh snow in full safety conditions. The off-piste track is delimited by means of appropriate signs, and frequent snow and visibility checks are carried out by a qualified staff. The freeride slope can be easily reached with the Col Margherita cable car (2,513 m), it is more than 800 m long and waves along couloirs, rocks jumps and snow dunes.
ARTVA centre: the ski area can boast a ARTVA training centre, along the slope "Col Margherita - Lago Cavia" (reachable by cable car from San Pellegrino Pass), the only one among the ski districts Val di Fassa-Carezza and Alpe Lusia-San Pellegrino, owned by the "CAI" (Italian Alpine Club). It is an area of 100 m x 100 m, fenced and equipped to simulate the involvement of one or more skiers under an avalanche, who can be identified by means of a transceiver, a shovel and a probe. 6 ARTVA devices are placed in the area at different depths and inclinations, which can be activated from a control unit placed at the entrance of the court. The access is free, online reservation required.
Top ski slope: La Volata. The new fast and technical ski run starts from the uphill station of the cable car Col Margherita (2,510 m) running till to the San Pellegrino Pass (1,879 m) the piste is 2,350 m long with 630 m of drop. Actually, the track is not completely new, part of it was already there along the piste leading to Lago di Cavia, and, at the end, when joining with the slope "Col Margherita". This is the new track "La Volata", just before the final part, the piste presents a max grade point of 57% (30% on average). The track is varied and wonderful just like the Dolomites panorama and the fairy woods surrounding it. As the slope requires your full concentration, we suggest you to stop at the cable car’s arrival to look around and enjoy the wonderful view on the Pale di San Martino and on the majestic peaks surrounding the pass. The track is approved for international ski races (Junior World Ski Championships in 2019 and Women Ski World Cup in 2021).
