Folgarida and Marilleva, who share their slopes with Madonna di Compiglio, is still relatively unknown to British skiers. A large area of piste is covered by artificial snow making machines which are very often used in very early season to build up a good base. The Val di Sole is renowned for its heavy snowfalls that usually guarantee good skiing until the end of April. The slopes are well maintained and offer an excellent progression from first day beginner to expert, with lots of wide gentle runs for novices. Your lift pass covers Folgarida and Marilleva, which is about half the circuit. Intermediates and advanced skiers can buy an inexpensive daily lift pass extension and enjoy the skiing over at Madonna di Compiglio.

There are three areas of linked slopes around Madonna: Pancugolo to the west, Pradalago to the north, and Passon Groste (the highest area) to the east. Pradalago is also linked by lift and piste to Monte Vigo, where the slopes of Folgarida and Marilleva also meet. New lifts have been added in recent years including a new link to the nearby resort of Pinzolo. This has added a further 40km of piste to the circuit.

Both hotels have a swimming pool which are available, when attended, free of charge. There is a floodlit ice rink a short walk from the hotel Union and floodlit skiing close to the hotel Annamaria. In addition there is a pizzeria and disco bar within close proximity to the hotels and the possibility of bowling near to Dimaro approximately 20 minutes away by coach.
