Ponte di Legno and Passo De Tonale
Spend your holidays in the heart of nature, leaving the chaos of the big cities far behind you. Ponte Di Legno , Passo Tonale, Northern Valle Camonica and Northern Val di Sole… in a word: Adamello Ski. Adamello Ski can offer unforgettable experiences no matter what the season. Sport, nature, history and tradition have been matched with a modern approach to tourism. We see Adamello Ski as a treasure trove with subtle charm and a simple appeal.
In the winter , state-of-the-art chair lifts and cable cars take skiers to heights ranging from 1155 metres at Temù to 3000 metres on the Presena glacier, with routes that offer hugely varying characteristics and a constantly changing landscape: from woods dating back hundreds of years to vast snow-covered expanses. In certain areas the snow remains all year round. It will seem like you are skiing in different parts of the country on the same day, down slopes with perfect snow cover thanks to the programmed artificial snow systems throughout the area.
Ponte di Legno
This is one of the oldest ski stations in Italy but also a famous summer resort throughout the Alps. Its position is splendid on a sunny plateau at 1260 m above sea level overlooked by the Adamello range. The historic centre is very picturesque and there is also a lively little square.
Ponte di Legno is a well-equipped resort with pistes for all levels of skier and has artificial snow, cross-country skiing, connection to the Pass at Tonale to make up a single ski area, ice-skating, swimming pools, discotheques and games rooms.
Passo del Tonale
is a natural, open-air amphitheatre spreading from an altitude of 1,884 m up to 3,100 m. A top class winter resort, Passo Tonale, together with the Presena Glacier, has always ensured an extremely long season of sport on the snow. It is the ideal training ground for skiing novices, with its sunny south-facing slopes suitable for beginners and much more besides. You’ll be spoilt for choice! Try the legendary “black” Paradiso run, 3 km long with a total altitude difference of 710 m, or the long, scenic Alpino piste stretching out over 4,500 m, with a 725 m altitude range.
Presena is one of the very few glaciers where summer skiing is also possible. A modern cable car takes skiers up to 2,585 m at Passo Paradiso: the gateway to the glacier which stretches upwards before your very eyes to reach 3,069 m at Cima Presena.
Majestic mountains form a circle to crown the glacier, enveloping the skier.
For free riders this is the access point to the most beautiful off-piste skiing spots in the Alps: Mandrone, Maroccaro, Cima Venezia and Pisgana.
The glacier also offers great hiking possibilities, with a fantastic climbing trail amidst remnants of the Great War.
Absolutely not to be missed is the super straight Presena-Tonale-Ponte di Legno run:
11 km of pistes with a 1,740 m altitude difference to be done all in one go!
