Snowy winters in Lunigiana

Sports, food, tradition and more

The Lunigiana offers its visitors something for every season. When winter comes the green mountains change clothes and are ready to accommodate the ski lovers. In the Tuscan-Emilian Apennines, on the border between Emilia-Romagna and Liguria, snow-lovers find the perfect destination for their vacation: Zum Zeri. Founded in 1971, today it's one of Tuscany's best ski resorts, well equipped with modern lifts. It owes its fame to the perfect track conditions and diverse opportunities to practice a variety of winter sports.

The locations boasts three lifts, nine trails 25 km long with a maximum height of 1600m, a snow park among the longest in Italy, a baby play area and 2 km of runs. With all these offerings, Zeri has sports activities to suit all ages and all tastes. Everyone can have fun and spend a pleasant day creating memories.

This landscape has so much to offer, from the dazzling white snow of the highest point to the deep blue of the sea. This is the Lunigiana: the beauty and charm of the mountains next to the sea, two different worlds with their own characteristics but close to eachother.

After a day of sports, take a break at the Passo Due Santi refuge and taste the typical products of the place. At Zum Zeri the food is simple and natural, made with genuine products, which grow in the area. Specialities include chestnuts, porcini mushrooms and the delicious meat of lamb, cooked according to old recipes—rediscover the traditions and the authentic flavours of the area.
