Madonna di Campiglio

Madonna di Campiglio Ski Resort Italy

Madonna di Campiglio ski resort sits snugly in a valley below the spectacular Brenta Dolomites in Trentino, Italy. A refined town, there are a few of the fur clad set promenading on the local streets putting the town on a par with Cortina & Courmayeur.

The resort stretches for over 18km north to south from the Val di Sole to Val Redena & has multiple gondola lifts accessing 150km of piste trails in combination with Folgarida Marilleva and Pinzolo ski resorts.

Summary of Pros & Cons for Madonna di Campiglio Ski Resort

Pros

  • Fabulous family friendly snow holiday destination;
  • Snow sure, higher snowfalls than the true Dolomites;
  • Pedestrian friendly village with excellent access to multiple lifts;
  • Very good piste trails for all abilities on varied terrain aspects;
  • Generally modern comfortable ski lifts;
  • Tree skiing available;
  • Beautiful views over the Brenta Dolomites;
  • Fabulous range & extent of non-ski activities;
  • Interesting mountain huts;
  • Village in splendid surrounds.

Cons

  • Day parking in the village difficult to navigate;
  • Limited alpine off piste freeride terrain;
  • Accommodation in the village books out quickly;
  • Several long flat traverses & old slow lifts in critical locations;
  • Some pistes are extremely busy & get skied off quickly – particularly trails from Marilleva to Madonna.

Pro or Con Depending On Your Perspective

  • Linked with Folgarida Marilleva & Pinzolo;
  • Ritzy high end reputation (but in fact is no more so than many other ski resorts).

Madonna di Campiglio Skiing & Snowboarding Terrain

Whilst the surrounding peaks may look intimidating, the reality of Madonna di Campiglio is that nearly half the ski trails are at beginner level, with the longest a healthy 8km. That's not to say there is little for advanced skiers & snowboarders. Some gloriously fast and steep trails plunge into the valley to perfectly complement the easier terrain. There are also some off piste trees & high alpine bowls to explore for the adventurous (i.e. the Powderhounds!).

See the Madonna di Campiglio Skiing & Snowboarding page for more information.

Interlinked with Folgarida Marilleva & Pinzolo

Madonna is the meat and Folgarida Marilleva & Pinzolo the sandwich in the Ski Area Campiglio Dolomiti di Brenta which interlinks the three resorts by ski lift, piste & pass. See the trail map here.

Where is Madonna di Campiglio, Italy?

The Brenta Dolomites are a jagged prominence to the east of the lovely village of Madonna di Campiglio and stand as a barrier to the nearest city, Trento. Trento is 30km south west of Madonna as the crow flies, but over 72km by road.

Gateway international airports are at Venice Marco Polo (272km & 3.5hr by road) & Milan Malpensa (258km  & over 4hr drive). Verona & Innsbruck airports are an option for UK & European based skiers.


Travel to Madonna by train is possible, but time consuming. Two train stations have integrated gondola ski lifts to the adjacent Folgarida Marilleva ski resort.

Madonna di Campiglio Accommodation

Soaking in the sun and views on a lounger at the Cinque Laghi or on Monte Spinale (spritz in hand!), then ripping back down into the beautiful town at warp factor 10 is a fun way to experience Madonna di Campiglio. And so is staying in the town itself. Once you park the car (potential saga), wandering the town is pure pleasure & a gondola up to the ski hill wont be far away - there are 5 extending from the town (and a sixth one not too distant!).

However if you cant afford Madonna (the town, not the entertainer) or it is fully booked out, the best alternatives are Campo Carlo Magno (above Madonna) and Pinzolo (down the Val Rendena). Next best is Folgarida and then the Val di Sole towns of Mezzana & the like. Price goes down proportionate to the distance from Madonna di Campiglio. Even though it is totally 'ski in', avoid the temptation to stay at Marilleva (enough said!).
