One of the most charming places in the Prealps, Mount Maniva stands between the three valleys in the province of Brescia: Camonica, Trompia, and Sabbia. It’s only 50 km from the city of Brescia. This is a highly-sought after resort, suitable for sports and outdoors enthusiasts. It still hasn’t been reached by mass tourism and is offers several food&wine, educational, natural, and panoramic experiences.
Pristine spaces, breathtaking landscapes, clear Alpine lakes, well-maintained pistes, and high-quality accommodation facilities make Mount Maniva the ideal destination for a holiday centered on sports and wellness, irrespective of the season. In this splendid place lies one of the most rapidly growing ski areas in our province: Maniva Ski
With 40 km of snow-covered pistes, 9 ski lifts, and an altitude ranging from 1,450 to 2,100 m, Maniva Ski is a young, constantly developing ski resort able to accommodate everyone’s tastes, from ski mountaineering to cross-country and even the thrill of the snowboard. There is one black piste, 6 red, and 8 blue for fun-filled days at all levels of preparation.
The pistes of the ski area are easily accessible through 3 chairlifts, 4 conveyor belts, and 2 ski lifts. You will rapidly get to the top while admiring the surrounding breathtaking views. The recent construction of the new Persole-Dasdana ski lift at 2,088 m of altitude projects Maniva into Prealps ski area stardom.
You can also explore the surrounding area on snowshoes, an excellent way to experience the mountains in the light of the moon surrounded by the candid embrace of the snow. There is more: Sleddog arrives to Maniva this year.
A breath of fresh air is arriving to Maniva. We are not only talking about temperatures. In close partnership with Maniva Ski, here comes Maniva Sleddog, a unique experience where you will challenge yourself riding a sledge pulled by friendly Alaskan Huskies surrounded by nature and unforgettable landscapes.
The brand new trail features turns, gentle slopes, and mixed terrain for an exciting experience which will bring to mind images of the Great White North or the incredible Iditarod race.
The experience is open to everybody, from aspiring professional mushers to those who simply want to try the inebriating experience of being pulled by our four-legged friends. For children between 3 and 8 years of age, the sledge will be controlled by the Maniva Sleddog team. All the others will be given a short introduction to the main commands and then off they go, always followed by the instructors to guarantee a safe experience.
