If you like skying, in 1 hour by the car, you can find Abetone.
The Pistoia mountains are a true paradise for lovers of winter sports. Here you can find some of the most beautiful and well-equipped ski resorts in the dell’Appennino toscano, such as Abetone and Doganaccia, well-known and visited both by those who love skiing for pleasure and those who ski competitively.
The entire area is served by well-equipped refuges, located around the ski resorts and also higher up, that offer refreshment, relaxation and breathtaking views.
The ski resorts include four splendid valleys, the Val di luce, the Valle dello Scoltenna, the Valle del Sestaione and the Val della Lima. The ski-lifts start from 1200 metres and reach a height of 1930 metres above sea level, and serve a network of slopes of varying difficulty for both downhill skiing and snowboarding. There are also some trails in the area available for cross-country skiing. Enthusiasts have at their disposal modern equipment such as cableways, chair-lifts, ski-lifts, baby-lifts and a cutting edge cable car with automatic release. The snow cover is always in perfect condition thanks to the help of the programmed snow machines: the snow cannons (100 at Abetone and 22 at Doganaccia) are aimed at all of the downhill slopes and cover most of the surface, which gives the resorts skiiable slopes right through to the spring. Excellent ski schools with qualified instructors offer both the competitor and the beginner individual or group lessons of skiing and snowboarding.
You can park inside the house and the service it's included. When you arrive, the owner give you the zapper to go in and out anytime as you like.
