Madesimo Ski Resort Italy

Madesimo ski resort is a popular haunt for snow lovers from Milan. Located near Switzerland, Madesimo (a.k.a. Valchiavenna) strikes a perfect balance between alpine villages, rifugios, ample piste terrain & interesting backcountry powder ski routes.

The Madesimo ski resort has a skiable vertical of over 1500m served by a modern ski lift system that is all gondola or chairlift. The resort’s central Alps location means snowfalls can be phenomenal as storms from all directions reach out to it, dropping their white goodness. The vast swathes of freeride powder for advanced riders perfectly complements the mainly beginner & intermediate piste trails.
