The black slope of Folgarida was built during the summer of 1967, as a result of a consultation by the well-known Technical Director of the F.I.S.I. National Teams at the time, Ermanno Nogler. The slope was already approved for international races back in 1969, and in 1996 important changes were made to enlarge and define certain features of the slope. In 1998, floodlights were installed along the final part of the slope, giving skiers the chance to also enjoy this slope in the evening.
Equipped with one of the most modern snowmaking systems, the slope can be completely prepared and groomed using programmed snow. It’s a technical slope, with a vertical drop of 600 meters and an average width of 35 meters, wedged right into the forest: it’s a challenging descent with varied features but you’ll be glad you tried it. Numerous ski competitions have taken place on this slope including the ISF Snowboarding World Championship in 1999 and numerous editions of the Snowboard Trofeo Topolino. Skiers that can ski down this slope without catching their breath definitely deserve a pat on the back.
