Madonna di Campiglio ski & snowboard holidays take you to a very pleasant, rather upmarket resort lying in a sheltered valley in the Brenta Dolomites. At an altitude of fifteen hundred and fifty metres and with the highest skiing at two thousand six hundred metres, it has a good snow record. The village has a pedestrianised centre with shops, cafes, bars and restaurants. It is a good choice of resort for those who have non-skiers in their party as there are several off the slope activities and it is easy to while away the hours in this delightful town. The pistes cater for all levels of ability and boarders have a choice of four excellent snow parks.
Madonna di Campiglio has a good reputation and attracts skiers and boarders from every age group and all abilities from the first-timer to the skier with years of experience. The ski pass covers, among others, neighbouring Folgarida, Marillevaand Passo Tonale. This gives a combined total of one hundred and fifty kilometres of piste. Among them are several long, cruising runs. A free ski bus takes novices to the nursery slopes at Campo Carlo Magno. The wide, gentle runs are the perfect place to acquire basic skills, and just as importantly, to gain in confidence. They can then move up the mountain to find greater challenges. Intermediates have the greatest choice with many red runs of varying degrees of difficulty. The more proficient intermediate has also a choice of the easier black runs. Advanced skiers have some testing black runs including the Spinale Diretissima that runs from Monte Spinale all the way back down to the village. There are of course many opportunities for skiing off piste. Just remember to take a mountain guide. Boarders have the choice of four snowparks with the Madonna di Campiglio park ranking highly.
Madonna di Campiplio hotels, apartments and chalets all provide high quality accommodation. The warm and friendly welcome and the good service come as no surprise in this traditional Italian village. There is a plentiful supply of eateries both on and off the mountain that offer a wide range of wholesome food. Pasta and pizza are obviously a prominent and a very affordable feature of the menu. Nightlife is fairly lively with bars and discos. Recreational facilities include ice skating, snow-shoeing, tobogganing, snow tubing and dog sledding. Night skiing is also available and there is a cinema.
