Modena Apennines, Mount Cimone

Many years ago there were only horse-pulled sleighs. Then, after World War Two, lift systems were installed: the Sestola-Pian del Falco chairlift (the first one in Emilia and one of the first in Italy), then the cableway Passo del Lupo-Pian Cavallaro and the Polle and Cimoncino ski lifts.

The next steps in the history of the Cimone ski resort saw the extension of the ski lifts and runs and the development of the entire resort to the point that it has hosted important international events such as the “Tombiadi” in 1988, two editions of the Italian Open Championships and many F.I.S competitions. Today the Cimone resort is at the forefront of winter sport resorts and boasts a top quality tourist offer.

Short and long runs, “Black” and “Blue”, always perfectly groomed and nearly all equipped with artificial snow systems; fast and safe lift systems with access by key card; off-piste runs and slopes for extreme skiing; ski instructors for every technique: athletes and beginners can find the answer to all their requirements just one hour from Modena or the Autosole motorway.

Fun in the mountains for everyone, Cimone is the ideal resort for children and families: playground, ski school slope, easy runs with easy to use systems, routes especially studied for families with small children; here children can approach skiing, even at competitive level, from a very young age.
