The town is located at 1450 metres above sea level and has been a well-known ski destination since the 1800's. The town has retained its charm over the years as an elegant and lively alpine capital.
During the 1800's the Northern European upper class came down here to enjoy the unique landscape guided by the local "very brave" skiers, but today all are welcome. The city is surrounded by the forest "Pale di San Martino". In 1936, the place got its first lift - the predecessor of the current highly efficient lifts, as there are currently 23 in the local area. The trails are many, and here is a "Burton Progression Park-snow park" for snowboarders, which is unique to this region of Northern Italy. In addition, at the bottom of the valley there are several cross-country routes.
The town is cosy and charming. And not only that ,San Martino has a fantastic mountain range with a spectacular moon-like landscape at 2700 metres altitude. There are a wealth of shopping opportunities in the town as well as all the pleasures one can imagine might be found in a lively mountain town such as a cinema, discos, and sports facilities. The gastronomy certainly is something here since it sits between Venice and Trento and is influenced by both cities.
The possibilities for activity here are almost endless, and there are good opportunities for breathtaking trekking, excursions to mountain lakes and ski slopes.
From the airports of Venice and Treviso, there is a bus that services this town during the ski season.
