Trentino - South Tirol is the number one region for skiing in Europe. Tens of world-famous different resorts, some as close as 30-40 min by car from Trento (Monte Bondone, Paganella, Folgaria). In some areas you can start skiing in the morning and come back in the evening without repeating a single slope, like in Predazzo - Pampeago - Obereggen (1 h), Alpe di Siusi, Madonna di Campiglio, SellaRonda (1.2 - 1.5 h).
Ski menu: a new style of skiing vacationSki menu (a la carte): if you can treat you to a long skiing vacation in winter, don't get stuck at a single skiing location. Enjoy Trento intimate historic center (Trento is much easier to reach and with a milder climate with respect to the mountain tops), give a look at the weather forecast, and choose two-three-four exciting skiing resorts, one for each sunny day. And when it snows, or when you want to relax a bit, visit the Christmas Market and taste the local "grappa", wine and food. Or consider the brand new MUSE (science) and MART (art) museums. Or walk with snow shoes on the magic Viote plateau (or ride snow bicycles - yes - another recent possibility). We can help with suggestions, plans and ski tickets (ski deposit directly at home), contact us for details . We suggest you reserve early, in particular if you plan to stay for more than a couple of days, some periods get very crowded.

Viote (Bondone) infinite dreamland in winter, with "mountain restaurants" (Capanna Viote, Rifugio Viote) closeby for a hot chocolate and more.
If you like nature, Viote plateau is where you want to get lost in the snow (30 min from apt.). Ideal for everybody including kids. Optimal also for Nordic skiing, ski mountaineering, snow shoes, sledges and snow biking. The top of Monte Bondone skiing resort (Palon Alto) is in the back. Monte Bondone features one of the longest ski slopes in the Alps - "Gran Pista" 3550 meters length, 809 m height difference, 30% average slope (Monte Bondone ski map).(back to Trento tourism)
