The most fashionable winter resort of Pistoia is the Abetone. The territory of Abetone includes winter resorts, historical villages, nature spots, trekking and sport activities in the mountains and hills surrounding the historical town of Pistoia.The name derives from the fact that during the construction of the road that connected the Grand Duchy of Tuscany with the Duchy of Modena was shot down a fir tree so large that it couldn´t be embraced by six people, hence the name Abetone (big tree) precisely.The Abetone ski resort has about 50 km of tracks. The whole area is divided into three main areas:the first area consists of two blue paths suitable for beginners and a red trail, suitable for everyone.the second area includes the three most famous and frequented tracks of the Abetone: the three Zeno, designed by the famous Zeno ski champion Colò.
