The pandemic has left its mark on the tourism industry, but it hasn’t been able to stop the Skiarea Campiglio Dolomiti di Brenta that, after remaining closed last winter, has announced that the upcoming 2021/2022 winter season will be all about innovation. Lift improvements, new gondola lifts and safety measures to protect yourself and others against Covid-19: discover just what’s waiting for you this winter in the Skiarea.
The new Fortini - Pradalago gondola lift is definitely one of the most anticipated features in the Skiarea this winter. This new lift, with heated 10-seater cabins, has replaced a 4-seater chairlift. It will improve the connection between the Fortini and Grosté ski areas, thanks to the position of the bottom terminal which is now located on the opposite side of the road, near the bottom terminal of the gondola going up to the Grosté mountain. The bridge that connects the two sides will only be used in one direction, in other words, by all those who want to once again take the new lift (or the lift that goes up in the opposite direction) at the bottom of the Pradalago slope.
In Folgarida Marilleva, the new Alpe Daolasa bar and restaurant (formally known as Ristorante Bar “Quota 2045”), located at the top terminal of the Daolasa 2 gondola lift, is ready to welcome guests back with a new contemporary design. It’s been fully renovated and the spacious outdoor terrace is the perfect spot to enjoy a fantastic view of the Brenta Dolomites. The Panoramica and Delle Rocce slopes also have a new modern look for this season. During the last year, they’ve been carefully redesigned to also reduce their environmental impact on the surroundings. In Pinzolo, the Grual water reservoir basin has now been completed and this new “lake” is ready to provide enough water supply to produce snow, if needed, for the upcoming winter season.
The winter 2021/22 season will of course be a bit different than the last pre Covid-19 season due to the protocol that has been approved in all of Italy and that must be applied in all ski areas. The “Green pass” (Digital COVID certificate) will be required to access the lifts and slopes and it will be mandatory to wear a face mask on all lifts and common areas. The maximum capacity on gondolas and chairlifts (if used with closed windbreak domes) will be reduced to 80%, while open chairlifts will have a 100% capacity. A distance of at least 1 meter must also be maintained.
