Skiing Holidays in Passo Tonale, Italy
Ski Passo Tonale
Such a perfect resort, especially for beginners and newly-fledged intermediates, with grand views of Cima Presena, with its magnificent glacier. It's high on the pass linking Lombardy and Trentino - and, as we know, altitude equals reliable snow, in this case with plenty of sunshine too. Wonderful!
Wonderful too is that it is a quiet, uncrowded resort with queues almost unknown and it links to the lower village of Ponte di Legno for added variety, and many other resorts in the Skirama Dolomiti Adamello-Brenta area, on a single pass.
Beginners will love the wide and sunny slopes right by the village of Passo Tonale. For improvers, there are many gentle blue runs, and for the more adventurous there's the Alpino piste, a great 4.5 kms, plus the Presena glacier, for short and sweet descents. Experts will revel in off-piste opportunities and long runs like the Sgualdrina Cantiere in the Val Presena, and the epic 16kms of the Pisgana.
Après-ski Passo Tonale
With a quiet past, the future is looking increasingly lively! Eating out is mainly in hotel restaurants with pizzas and pasta (of course!) as well as fine dining if you choose. For après drinking , there's Baracca, El Bait, Bar Heaven, Nico's, Crazy Horse - we could go on…and a couple of discos. Off the slopes, the activities are generally snow and ice-based - snowmobiling, skating, snowshoeing, tobogganing, tubing - but there's a swimming pool in Ponte di Legno.
So - Passo Tonale, for family fun at reasonable prices. A great place to learn to ski or snowboard. GetSkiing can get you there!
Gary's Little Gems
"Due to its height, there is good snow and optimal skiing conditions across the season. There are modern lifts, a good sun and snow record but most of the resort is above the tree line. Late or early in the season you should try skiing on the Presena Glacier at over 3000m elevation where the snow is fresh and light. Passo Tonale is relatively unknown in the UK and has very good value for money prices with slopes ideal for beginners to intermediates."
