Three hubs making up one large resort, this 

is 


mondolé Ski

, with 4 access points, over 

120 km of downhill slopes for skiers of eve-

ry level, and a panoramic cross-country ski 

circuit. Artesina (1300 m), frabosa Soprana 

(884 m) and Prato Nevoso (1500 m) the three 

skiing villages that form the resort. It has 30 

lifts, using a “hands-free skipass” system.



Artesina

 is rightly proud of its 60 km of 

piste and is renowned for the Turra plains, 

a  fantastic  balcony  looking  out  over  the 

Maritime Alps, here you can take in some 

breathtaking  views  with  slopes  of  all  

levels as you weave your way down from 2100 

m. There are quieter areas and gullies for  

off-piste  skiing  and  wonderful  walks  with 

snow shoes.

At 

frabosa Soprana

, which was a holi-

day destination as early as the end of the 

nineteenth century, you can still see the 

Parish  Church  of  St.John  the  Baptist  built 

by F.Gallo in the eighteenth century and a 

lively town centre all through the winter.  

The skiable area has FISI approved slopes. 

The 7 lifts supply 30 km of pistes for all  

levels of skill.



Prato Nevoso

 is dedicated to families, its 

particular amphitheatre shaped lay-out of 

the Conca and its southern exposure, with 

plenty to offer for young people by day and 

through the winter evenings. This part of 

the resort has 37 km of slopes and 11 lifts. 

A particular feature is the night-time illu-

mination to ski under a star-filled sky on 

7 km of piste. The snowpark is lit at night 

too and is the showcase of the freestyle 

area, equipped for every level of riding, with  

boxes, rails, jumps, half pipes, boarder cross 

runs and a new bagjump. Not forgetting the 

snow tubing for grown-ups and kids alike, 

open at night when the slopes are lit. 

For the little ones, Mondolé has three fun 

parks and a snowpark: the Pinky Park at  

Artesina with a magic carpet, bob and sledge 

runs, and a play area with the entertainer 

Pinky.  Frabolandia  at  Frabosa  Soprana,  by 

the Malanotte chairlift, offers a number of 

activities throughout the year and Prato 

Nevoso Village at Prato Nevoso has a large 

play area with snow tubing, magic carpets 

and games in the Conca and La Collina dei 

Daini, a snowpark where kids can twist and 

jump like real freestylers.

The province of Cuneo offers an immense range of high quality typical produce. Some-

thing for all tastes. The quality produce grown here and the numerous excellent typical 

dishes deliver the strong, lively and tasty gastronomic character of the place. The land 

around Cuneo is still healthy and its products distinguish themselves for their unique, 

individual character. From wines to cheeses, from salame to Piedmontese beef, from 

the vegetables to the fruit. It all tastes good and wholesome.

Among the top scorers on traditional menus are 

Polenta, (made with maize or buck-

wheat flour), 

Bagna Caôda (a sauce made of oil, garlic, anchovies, and sometimes with 

added cream, used as a dip for seasonal vegetables), 

Vitello Tonnato (slices of meat 

with sauce), 

Fritto Misto (vegetables, meat and sweet morcels fried in batter), soup with  

pulses  or  vegetables, 

Ravioli,  Gnocchi (potato dumplings with Castelmagno D.O.P. 

cheese), 

Tagliatelle with mushrooms, meat done in a number of ways, from tartare to 

roasts and boiled beef, desserts like chestnut pudding and peaches stuffed with ama-

retti biscuits and chocolate.

Unique gastronomic specialities

For a warm winter evening in 

the mountains around Cuneo

What a better way to finish the day than a pleasant evening in good company? What 

could be better than a moonlit ride on a snowmobile or snowcat to have supper in a 

chalet with a menu of traditional dishes? In a unique snowbound setting, by the warmth 

of real fire, with tempting dishes laid out to spoil you and treat you.
