Madonna di Campiglio

Madonna di Campiglio - 150 kilometers of runs to go. Madonna is definitely on of the big alp resorts that spreads over Pinzolo and Ragoli (including Madonna).  Dominating silhouettes of the Brenta Dolomite mountains are the recognizable face of the resort. Beauty of the Dolomite mountains is also recognized globally and mountains are declared into a World Heritage Site On 26 June 2009 by UNESCO.,+TN,+Italia&hl=fi&ll=46.234715,10.844193&spn=0.164335,0.396538&sll=62.593341,27.575684&sspn=7.010738,25.378418&oq=madonna+di+&hnear=Madonna+di+Campiglio,+Trento,+Trentino-Alto+Adige,+Italia&t=m&z=12Madonna is located 1500 above the sea level and offers a good snow even during March. We don't know if this is a typical spring weather here but there is still plenty of snow on and off-pistes. Off-piste skiing is not necessary on its best anymore but still it looks like that there are plenty of runs to go at late spring.

Access to the lift and slopes is easy and convenient even for snowboarders, which is not always the case at the alp resorts. Snowboarders and freestyle skiers are also well taken care of by offering well designed and maintained parks.

Slopes are relatively easy at least on the Madonna's side of the resort and most of them can be recommended even for the beginners. Still offering several black runs and good off-pistes Madonna di Campiglio has definitely enough runs from a beginner to experienced skiers.

During March the high season is already over but during the weekends the whole resort turns into a snow party and restaurants and popular runs are quite crowded. That changes immediately when the weekend is over so there will be plenty of space for skiing after the busy weekends.
