Modena Apennines, Fiumalbo, Capanna dei Celti
The Capanna dei Celti mountain lodge lies at the heart of the Parco del Frignano, at 1400 m, in an area of particular interest for Celtic history; it is located in an uncontaminated landscape easily accessible by all transport means and just 10 km from the Abetone ski resort.
A number of trails start here; some go to the top of Mount Cimone (2165 m) and then continue along the ridges of the Apennines or go down to the valley bottom with its many rivers.
Thanks to the geographic position of this mountain lodge, a number of sports are available such as ski-mountaineering, trekking with snow rackets, mountain bike riding etc...all in total freedom surrounded by a peaceful environment.
Fiumalbo ski district offers a number of opportunities in a welcoming and unusual atmosphere compared to other tourist sites.
Snow boarders can hire all the equipment, including ski poles, go to the top of Mount Cimone and free-ride down an 800 m drop.
There is also a ski school slope with magic carpet and a tubing run (rubber rings) for breath-taking descents, open in winter and summer.
The snow-park is open also at night thanks to a powerful lighting system
The resort also features a groomed cross-country skiing loop. All the equipment for cross-country skiing, snowboarding and skiing as well as rubber rings and bob sledges can be hired here.
