From this afternoon, the 13th of November, the lifts of the Carosello 3000 gondola (I and II part) will be open, giving access to the “Polvere” slope.
The snow of last week followed by the reduction of the temperatures of these days has given the opportunity to produce artificial snow, anticipating the start of the winter season.
The lifts will be open to the public starting from 29th of November, official opening with the start also of the promotion Skipass Free, valid from 28th November to 25th December and from 17th April to 2nd May 2010.
