Abetone: All you need to know
The ski slopes are situated between four marvellous linked valleys: Val di Luce, Valle dello Scoltenna, Valle del Sestalone and Valle di Lima. These valleys form one of the most beautiful, famous and natural scenery of the Appennino. Abetone pooled with the nearby ski resorts of Corno ale Scale and of Cimone for the Big Snow ski-pass. It has moreover strengthened the snowfall using one hundred cannons. Abetone owes its name to a huge fir which was cut down towards the half of the 19Th century in order to build the road which should link the Tuscany Grand Ducky to the Estensi’s lands.
Two pyramids recall the work of the sovereigns of Modena and Tuscany to build the road .But come back to the ski runs and start talking of Selletta from where you can ski on the black slope of Sestaione and reach Foce di Campolino Or you can , always from Selletta, enjoy yourself skiing on Monte Gomito’s slopes and on Faitello’s ones and then go towards Val di Luce. From there you can go back up to Alpe Tre Potenze , a landscape recalling the Alps, nearly two Thousand metres high. In short Abetone ski resort can be defined as the queen of the Appennini thanks to its more than 40 ski facilities, to its seventy kilometres of ski runs, including the Cutigliano, Doganaccia and Pian di Novello’s ones, and about fifty cross country ski runs.
