Situated in the northeast Dolomite mountains, Madonna di Campiglio sits at nearly 5,000 feet and enjoys breathtaking views and great snow conditions. Considered to be a high-end ski resort, Madonna di Campiglio is a top Italy ski resort to experience the “passeggiata,” or Italian elite who enjoy showcasing their fur coats through town. In fact this afternoon ritual generally takes precedence over actually skiing, which is good news for the ski traveler who can enjoy 37 miles of skiing without much crowds or lift lines. But in case there are, 20 high uphill-capacity chairlifts whisk skiers around the resort.
Madonna di Campiglio is divided into three base areas that are interlinked via ski runs. The resort town boasts more than a dozen four-star restaurants and nearly two dozen three-star restaurants making it a foodie’s Alpine paradise.
If you fantasize of miles upon miles of the freshest, most perfectly groomed runs, the skiing at Madonna di Campiglio will be a dream come true. Truly—you won’t find any moguls here. The manicuring of these runs is taken very seriously at Madonna di Campiglio. Flawless groomed runs leave little excitement for experts seeking off-piste-style skiing. Thus, Madonna di Campiglio ski terrain is best enjoyed by intermediates and beginners.
Nearly 50 percent of the resort’s terrain is designated blue (which denotes easy in Europe) and nearly 40 percent of the resorts terrain is red (which denotes intermediate in Europe). At the top of the Pradalago gondola skiers can enjoy incredible views on the above-treeline blue and red runs.
