Carona Skiing

Carona is a very quiet resort, everything is family run; the hotel, ski lift, ski hire shop & the café. It is friendly, relaxed and,
of course, very Italian. Albergo Ristorante Carona is a gem, warm and welcoming, and the food wonderful!

Carona is in the Lombardia region of Italy and is a small ski resort connected to Foppolo via the Valle Carisole. The ski area
is small by Alpine standards, best suited to intermediate skiers, topping out at 2200m. However, it is particularly quiet which
is actually a big plus when learning to ski. There are numerous little restaurants and hot chocolate stops!

Carona itself consists of a single black run, accessed via a chairlift, a number of red runs served by drag-lifts (replaced by
a quad chairlift in late 2011) and a little baby run (its drag-lift was replaced with a covered travelator in early 2011).

Foppolo is a larger, busier resort, but the runs are limited to an exciting upper red and a gentle lower blue (which has
jumps etc for the kids), both served by chairlifts. However, there are plans to further develop the resort.
