Snowboarding

The White Highlands of Folgaria, Lavarone and Luserna in Italy's Trentiono region are becoming a favourite haunt with snowboarders. Not least because a new snow-park has been added to the existing Fondo Grande park in Folgaria. The new area dedicated to snowboarding acrobatics is situated in Lavarone, or more precisely at Malga Rivetta, on the other side of the Forti ski carousel.

The Turismo Lavarone Lifts Association, in collaboration with the White Crows Snowboarding Club which provided technical know-how, has set up the park aimed at all ability levels.

Its many special features make this park both unique and innovative. Beginning with the challenging rails of several different types, from straight double pipes (two parallel rails) to single pipes, and the rainbow, the pyramid and the king, which present varying non linear shapes.

Particularly interesting are the three fun boxes: square raised platforms that allow riders to jump up and down from all four sides. Naturally there are also small and medium sized springboards used for air acrobatics.

As in the rest of the Altipiani di Folgaria, Lavarone e Luserna ski area, at Malga Rivetta too those who wish to try their hand at acrobatic snowboarding can hire all the necessary equipment , also for a less challenging practise of this discipline on the traditional slopes. For beginners lessons are available with the skilled instructors of the Lavarone Ski School.
