Piancavallo in winter means skiing in all its forms: downhill, cross-country, mountaineering, snowboarding and freestyle. This area is equipped for skiers of all ages and levels, with 25 km of pistes for Alpine skiing and 30 km for cross-country skiing (with a floodlit circuit at night), including modern ski lift facilities, scheduled artificial snow cover, and even hosting national and international ski races. It is the main ski resort in Pordenone and is among the most well-known and popular in Friuli Venezia Giulia. Sports fans can also practice many other activities, from ice skating to snowboarding (at the Snowboard Fun Park with 800 m of pistes), from dog sledding to bobsleigh and tobogganing. The facilities for sports lovers are completed by the exciting Alpine coaster (bobsleigh track), the Ice Rink (PalaPredieri) and the Sports Centre opened during the 2003 Universiade. While families choose Piancavallo to enjoy a fun, safe holiday, which is guaranteed by its private roads without any crossings and the presence of Nevelandia, a snow park for children.
If you love nature, peace and quiet, Alpine panoramas, cross-country skiing, ski mountaineering or snowshoe walks, you can also follow long trails of extraordinary beauty that wind through the pristine quiet scenery of the Friulian Dolomites Park, which organises a packed calendar of excursions. And what’s more in the Friulian Dolomites, you can take technical climbing and ice climbing courses in Alta Valcellina, or go on dog sledding races, snowmobile excursions and even go paragliding or hang gliding to admire the extraordinary landscape of the snow-capped mountains from up high. So you can get the full mountain experience, day and night snowshoe walks, including dinner, are organised with the FVG Tourism Board. The Claut Ice Rink is a meeting point for all fans of ice skating and curling (in fact, it is the only location used by the Italian Federal Curling Centre).
