Skiing on Mount Terminillo

On the snow of the "Rome's mountain"

The massif of Terminillo, also called the Mountain of Rome for its proximity to the capital, is the most important mountain group in the Reatini Mountains, hosting one of the most important ski resorts in central and southern Italy since the 1930s.

Indeed, on the slopes of the massif there are two ski resorts: the most famous is located on the southern side, between 1,500 and 2,108 metres of altitude, while on the opposite ridge there is the Leonessa-Campo Stella ski area.

The entire ski resort boasts downhill slopes for about 40 km, and three of the slopes have been approved for international competitions, making the area suitable even for more demanding skiers.

The cross-country ski slopes are also worth a visit, with their 26 km of slopes of varying difficulty and length, located at altitudes between 1,500 and 1,600 metres. Last but not least, there is also a slope with lighting system for night-time excursions.

Technical description:
The Terminillo ski area has 5 ski lifts including a historic cable car dating back to the 1930s which connects the village of Pian de’ Valli to Terminilluccio. From here a chairlift continues to the top of Terminilletto, starting point of the most technical slopes of the area.
