The ski area is formed by the link of the ski resorts of Madonna di Campiglio, Folgarida, Marilleva and Pinzolo. It is one of the best ski areas in Italy for intermediate skiers. The center of the area are the slopes around Madonna di Campiglio with 3 different domains all linked at their bottom ends. Pradalago offers the easiest tracks, very long, enabling connection via the Monte Vigo with the neighboring resorts of Folgarida and Marilleva (in the Val di Sole). On the right hand side there is Pancugolo mountain, where are the slopes hosting World Cup races every year (in the famous 3-Tre piste). Here are the most demanding slopes of all the area. Crossing Madonna there is Spinale - Passo Grosté area, the highest of the resort and, therefore, the place which offers the best views and has better snow conditions.
Madonna's ski area is connected with three neighboring stations: on one side Marilleva and Folgarida and on the other side the town of Pinzolo. Marilleva and Folgaria offer each one its own ski resort, with all the services and slopes of all difficulties. They are linked and connected with Madonna via the Monte Vigo area. On the opposite side of Madonna Pinzolo offers quite a small but magnificent ski area, with long slopes and fabulous views. It well deserves at least a ski day. There different skipass covering Madonna. The most complete ski pass (called Skirama Dolomiti) allows skiing in other neighboring stations such as Pejo, Tonale or Paganella, all great for a nice day trip if you want some extra skiing chance. The ski lifts have been modernized in recent years and queues are virtually nonexistent. The ski area has an excellent reputation for quality of slope grooming. Although some slopes are exposed to the sun the combination of a reasonable altitude and a very good network of snow guns can guarantee good snow conditions most of the season.
Surrounded by the breathtaking scenery of the Brenta Dolomites, Madonna di Campiglio is a very nice resort. Despite being purpose-built, Madonna was done with care and is really very nice. The resort center is pedestrianized, with nice shops, bars, restaurants and plenty of atmosphere. Great for an après-ski stroll. The lifts depart from different parts of the resort, covering a big area, but connected by the base. As the resort is quite large it is convenient to stay near one of the main lifts. A few miles away Pinzolo is a very beautiful village with authentic charm offering a much cheaper alternative to Madonna (however, there are few acommodations near the main lift). The two most popular villages of the Val di Sole are Folgarida and Marilleva, both the slopes and with direct connection to the ski area of Madonna di Campiglio. Of the two, Marilleva is greater (several levels) and Folgarida perhaps has a little more charm.
Après-ski is very quiet and exclusive, beginning with dinner in one of the excellent restaurants in the area and then follows in cafes, bars and clubs. All these spots are very quiet, Madonna is not the place for crazy fun chaos. One of the most typical après-ski activity is to go to dinner at one of the excellent mountain restaurants that are accessed only by special heated snowcats. It's a great experience! In the rest of the villages it's very, very quiet with the exception of Marilleva that welcomes more international tourism and may have a little more nightlife. Each of the villages has some place to have a proper drink or dance, the problem is that they have little atmosphere.
Like all Chic Ski resorts Madonna is a fantastic destination for non-skiers, with many shops and services of all kinds. Actually it is a resort that attracts many non-skiers and therefore during the day there is a great atmosphere of people walking around the pedestrian zone. There is a lake where you can go ice skating, beautiful 30 km cross country ski tracks in the woods and many marked trails in the snow for winter hiking. Folgarida and Marilleva are intended as ski resorts, so we do not recommend it for non-skiers. The village down the valley are good for tourism, hiking or cross-country skiing (if enough snow) but generally have a limited supply.
