COL MARGHERITA PARK
The Col Margherita Park is the most exciting part of the Ski Area San Pellegrino. It’s a true paradise for experienced skiers who want to have a good time and put their technical skills to the test on very challenging slopes and a freeride trail that is unique in all of Dolomiti Superski. All the tracks are served by the fast Col Margherita cableway, which sets off from an altitude of 2514 metres and arrives at Passo San Pellegrino, in the heart of the ski area.
For those of you who feel the need for speed, we suggest you don’t miss the new run called pista La VolatA. This is a steep, fast run, featuring a continuous series of spine-tingling walls with gradients of up to 50%, for a total length of 2400 m and 630 m of altitude drop. This slope will host the downhill and Giant Slalom races for the FIS #ValdiFassa 2019 Junior Alpine Skiing World Championships.
The Col Margherita and Le Caviette slopes are just as beautiful and scenic, but definitely more accessible for everyone. Both are about 3km long and perfect for warming up those muscles before taking on the La VolatA. The Col Margherita is all wide yet constant curves, several incline changes and two very steep segments; Le Caviette is a gentler descent with room for stops on the way down.
From Col Margherita you can ski towards Falcade along the Col Margherita-Lago Cavia red slope; then you can choose to return up the mountain with the namesake quad chair with windshield, or you can ski all the way down to Le Buse and take the new 8-person cabin lift back up to the summit.
The Col Margherita Park has also an ARTVA slope equipped to simulate rescue operations involving one or more victims of an avalanche, who can be located searching with the ARTVA device: in a fenced off area covering about 100 x 100 m, which represents a hypothetical accumulation zone of an avalanche, 6 containers holding special ARTVA transmitters are placed at various depths and inclinations; they can then be activated by a central command located at the entrance to the testing area.
