Skiing in Val di Sole


Val di Sole offers excellent skiing in the beautiful Brenta Dolomites in the Trentino region, with 270 km of slopes and 97 ski lifts.

The Brenta Dolomites are not technically part of the main Dolomites per se, but lie to the west and are beautiful in their own right. There are other ski areas that also accessible via a ski pass - the SuperSkirama Dolomiti Adamello Brenta ski pass offers access to 380 km of slopes in total.

The joy of the Campiglio Dolomiti di Brenta ski region is that it’s possible to enjoy its 150 km of slopes thanks to the excellent lifts between Folgarida Marilleva, Madonna di Campiglio and Pinzolo - there are 62 in total. The area is accessible from Val di Sole via four gondola lifts.

Folgarida Marilleva is a modern resort town and has 53 km of runs of varying degrees of difficulty and 27 lifts, as well as instructors from 3 ski schools. Madonna di Campiglio attracts wealthier skiers and is known as a party town, but also has a good number of intermediate and advanced slopes. Pinzolo is a smaller resort with around 30 km of piste, and is particularly ideal for beginners.

The Passo Tonale ski area has 100 km of slopes and 30 lifts, and offers skiing beyond the normal winter season as a result of the ski lifts on the Presena Glacier, which go as high as 3,000 m - meaning you can go skiing in both the late autumn and early spring! Together with Pontedilegno’s 8 pistes, it forms the Adamello ski region, which enables skiers to go from the Presena glacier through to Tonale and onwards to Pontedilegno and Temù - essentially a single ski run.

The Andalo-Fai della Paganella resort is made up of three towns: Andalo, Fai della Paganella and Molveno. It has 10 blue runs, 12 red runs and 1 black run making up 116 km of piste in total, served by 12 chairlifts and 2 cable cars.

Folgaria-Lavarone in the Alpe Cimbra mountains has 100 km of pistes made up of 19 blue runs, 20 red runs and 1 black run, connected by 22 lifts. The slopes vary in terms of descent, offering lots of options for skiers looking for a challenge.

Monte Bondone offers 20 km of slopes divided into 7 blue runs, 12 red runs and 1 black run. The pistes are nice and wide, and the resort’s Rocce Rosse ski lift is the highest rising chairlift in Europe thanks to its ability to ascend 809 m in just over 7 minutes.

Elsewhere, the Peio ski area in Stelvio National Park is both the highest and oldest resort in Trentino and is suitable for all skiers, especially families who would like a quieter place to ski in. Expert skiers can test their skills thanks to the PEJO 3000 gondola lift - which goes up to an altitude of 3,000 m - and the Pista Val della Mite slope.

Cross-country skiing fans will be interested in the 55 km of Nordic ski trails available in Val di Sole. The main locations to head for are Passo Tonale, Vermiglio, Cogolo, Ossana, Mezzana, Commezzadura and Rabbi.
