Alba and Penia are the natural extension of the main village of Canazei towards the Marmolada. Both little villages are nice and quiet for people who like to live in the stillness of a little centre but at the same time not far from amusements and facilities. In Alba there is the start of Ciampac lifts. The top skiers must go there, less once in their life, to try the big slope in the wood: it is really a thrilling experience! After Penia, over the Fedaia lake, the vast extent of the big glacier of the Marmolada offers a spectacular skiarea.
But Alba & Penia are not only for skiers. Still speaking about winter sports, at the ice stadium “Gianmario Scola” it is possible to skate on the ice rink or to see exciting hockey matches during the summer holidays. Never miss a walk in the Contrin valley to discover the “malgas”, huts in the mountains where cheese is still made with the same traditional recipe handed on from father to son. It is nice to enjoy fresh and tasteful dairy produce high in the mountains, surrounded by green pastures and uncontaminated nature.
Alba and Penia still remind us ancient people, small farmers who lived with the poor harvest of sloping fields, working hard to cultivate potatoes and few cereals. They gained some money in the saw-mill of Penia, cutting and selling wood. The antique “segheria veneziana” is nowadays considered a jewel of the Fassa Ladin Museum, even if it is in good condition and perfectly working.
