Campigna

Forlì Apennines, Campigna 1488 - 1650 m

Campigna is one of the most important historical forests in Italy. Significant historical heritage, extraordinary environments, fauna, rare species of flora combined with the stories of man and the stubbornness and hospitality of its inhabitants have contributed to the fame of Campigna; it is within easy reach of the towns in the Romagna plain and from Tuscany along the winding Bidente road which offers breathtaking views of Sassofratino, Poggio Scali, the massif of Mount Falterona and the Casentino plateaus.

Campigna is a favourite site for hikers and all types of skiers. Staying in Campigna means being in one of the vibrant and most famous centres in the heart of the national park; in fact, a thick and complete network of paths unfolds from the small town centre offering a full immersion into the forest.

The resort starts at 1510 metres and stretches up to 1680 metres.

The resort currently features a ski lift system that serves two 1,100 m long runs, one red and one black, a magic carpet lift system that serves two 100 m runs, one for bob sledges and one for sledges, and a very large and easy renovated school slope for skiing and snowboarding, a 5 km cross-country skiing loop groomed by a new groomer, large ski mountaineering and snow racketing trails and a ski school with 5  A.M.S.I. cross-country skiing and snowboarding instructors.

Refreshment areas, stop-off areas for cars and campers, a tennis court and soon a children’s playground offer those discreet small comforts that help to make an outdoor holiday enjoyable. When most people think of Campigna they think of snow and skiing:  the 2 Montefalco runs and the Fangacci school slope. These certainly can’t compete with the noble winter resorts in the Dolomites or Emilian Apennines but they represent a good starting point for tourists approaching this sport and meet the needs of the many lovers of a sport which is deeply linked to nature.   Campigna is in fact the only resort in Romagna and in the Casentino with such a complete natural and snow sport offer. In addition to downhill skiing, cross-country skiing and snowboarding, Campigna offers many other activities such as cross-country skiing excursions, ski mountaineering and the modern version of snow racketing; these activities combined with the charm of snow covered trails and the magic of the frost embroidered on the twisted beech trees on the ridge entice visitors to enjoy this ‘sea of trees’ called Campigna even in the heart of winter.

News: The new 5 km cross-country skiing trail called Le Rondinaie was opened in the 2007/2008 season ; it is groomed using a new groomer with multi flex tiller that prepares the tracks. A new 100 m school slope with magic carpet is also available for skiing, snowboarding, bob sledging and sledging.

In the 2008/09 Season a new 100 square metre building was opened at the bottom of the runs where skis, cross-country skis, snowboards, bob sledges and rackets can be hired. New public toilets have been opened at the start of the school slope and cross-country skiing trail. Changing rooms with hot showers and a waxing room are also available for cross-country skiers.
