Ski holidays in Passo Tonale

Passo Tonale has long been a favourite with British skiers due to its excellent snow record and wide sunny slopes. Here snow is guaranteed thanks to the efficient snow-making system and also the Presena Glacier providing skiing over 3000m.

The runs, which are mainly above the tree line, fan out on both sides of the valley and are well linked by the modern lift system ensuring there is little queueing. Tonale's gentle runs are particularly suited to beginners and intermediates who will see their skiing improve in no time at all!

The village is spread out along the valley and has several lively bars and some excellent restaurants and pizzerias. Keen skiers wanting a quieter nightlife will love the laid-back atmosphere of Tonale.
