Tonale Will Grab Your Attention.

07/11/2018
Spanning three towns and rising from valley to high pass to glacier, Tonale certainly gets one’s attention. For a resort so expansive, it is hard to believe there are only 100km of piste trails. Any place with nearly 1900m of skiable vertical is certainly not to be sneezed at.

A great value lift pass & some of the best 'learn to ski' & beginner ski facilities we have ever seen, make it a sure winner with families. Shame though that the nest of excellent lifts & facilities at Passo Tonale are up over 1800m & exposed to some nasty wind & cold temperatures on anything but the nicest day. Luckily descent & download on the gondola to the shelter of Ponte di Legno is easy.

Piste trails are majority easy intermediate. In the alpine they are highway like. The pitch increases on the piste amongst the tree lined trails above Temù & Ponte di Legno.

The alpine off piste terrain & routes off the Presena glacier are a mix of the serious & the just plain fun. On the opposite side of the pass, the freeride terrain is mellow. Tree skiing can be done if adventurous lower down the hill.

The village of Tonale is a tad ratty & windswept but has a few nice bars for a 'spritz n chips'. We stayed in the Val di Sole at Mezzana about 30min drive away (were going to ski Madonna di Campiglio et al). Had I known better, we would have stayed at least one night in lovely Ponte di Legno, if fpr no other reason than to admire the town centre with its cutesy covered bridge. Maybe next time.......
