Passo Tonale

passo-tonale

Passo Tonale is a high-altitude ski resort with a great snow record, extensive snowmaking facilities and a glacier, making it an excellent choice for an early or late ski tour. Suitable for all grades of skier, with long and varied pistes, Passo Tonale has been a popular choice for schools for many years.

One of Italy’s highest and sunniest resorts, our groups love the speedy lift network and lack of queues, as well as having the opportunity to ski on the Presena glacier. The resort offers superb progression from sunny, wide open nursery slopes to the longer more challenging runs higher up.

Offering great value for money, this purpose-built town has a lively feel with everything you need on hand. Skating across the natural ice-rink is a popular après activity, if your group isn’t already cutting shapes on the dance floor or competing in our quiz. And if your students fancy an après-ski swim, your lift pass gives discounted entrance to the nearby Ponte di Legno swimming pool.

Skiing

The village-level beginner lifts ferry learners to snowsure blues, where they can get to grips with the basics beneath a beautiful mountain backdrop.

Improvers have a good range of lower altitude runs near the resort to build their confidence on, while intermediates love the long cruises, such as the 6km tree-lined run down to Ponte di Legno. Any experts in your group can have fun higher up the mountain, learning to carve on the long reds as well as brave the fast black that sweeps down from the glacier.
