The Ski Area

Carnia offers the highest slopes in the region on the Varmost (Forni di Sopra) and the Zoncolan (Ravascletto).

Sheltered by the Carnian Alps and the Western Dolomites, here the skiing facilities are blessed with an unforgettable view not only over Carnia but also over the Austrian mountains and the distant but clearly visible Julian Alps.

Also the cross-country skiing tracks of Carnia are pleasant; they range from the rings for all tastes and abilities located at Sauris, Prato Carnico, Ampezzo, Lauco, Forni di Sopra, Forni di Sotto, Sutrio, Sella Chianzutan (Verzegnis) to the one laid out at the Paluzza lakes, used also by the former world and Olympic champion Manuela Di Centa, who comes from these parts.

For those who love downhill skiing, the main winter resorts in Carnia are Forni di Sopra, Ravascletto, Sauris e Pradibosco ( Prato Carnico). From Forni di Sopra a chairlift goes up to Cima Crusicalas, from where one has a magnificent view and can begin the descent of Varmost, which winds down for 12 km among the woods.


The resort is located in the Friuli-Venezia Giulia region of Italy which lies near the boarder between Austria and Slovenia.

The nearest international airport is located at Trieste (118km), transfer time is 1 hour 20 minutes.
