Febbio

Reggio Emilia Apennines, Febbio 1200-2063 m

In contact with nature. Febbio 2000, nestled in the nature of the Parco Regionale del Gigante, offers fun and entertainment and everything you may wish for on your winter or summer holiday.

In winter, Febbio becomes a well equipped ski resort, the highest in the northern Apennines   (1200-2063 m.); it is the favourite destination for ski lovers from the province of Reggio Emilia, and not only. The chairlifts go up to 2063 metres, almost reaching the top of Mount Cusna.

The high number of modern lift systems and the kilometres of runs (about 20 km) offer ski lovers a wide range of opportunities thanks also to the great amount of snow which lasts until late spring.  The great ridge of Mount Cusna and the varied landscape make this resort ideal for ski mountaineering, cross-country skiing and off-piste skiing.

Febbio2000 also offers large areas for snowboarding as well as fabulous off-pistes with natural badlands for half-pipe lovers.

Equipment can be hired at the bottom of the lift system and a local ski school is available to fine tune your technique. Near the "Baby" ski area there is a space where children can enjoy themselves on bob sledges and sledges.   Have fun on the snow!!
