The Consorzio Stazione Invernale del Cimone (Cimone Winter Facilities League), was born more than 20 years ago, is one of the most important skiing centres of Apennines, thanks to 50 km of ski-slopes, among which 25 are covered with programmed snow, and to 24 ski lifts, continually renewed, with a capacity of 22.000 persons per hour, its cross-country ski tracks, one ski pass, rentals, deposits, and 3 skiing schools. The efficiency of the slopes, its perfect bed of snow, the quality of the services, provided also for non-skiers, make the Cimone one of the most frequented winter resorts. The League provides facilities for schools, clubs, cral, etc., and organizes different competitions, both on international and social level. Recently, besides the traditional downhill ski, the "Snow-board", a new sport to slide on the snow, has been spread. It makes use of a board, which allows to do movements which are unthinkable with the traditional skies and for this, it is attractive to young people. For this reason, on the top of Monte Cimone, in the locality of Pian Cavallaro, a snow park with half pipe, jumps, contest and border cross, has been equipped.
