Madesimo

Ski resorts in Italy
Are you looking for a genuine Italian mountain village with amazing food, great ski runs and that unique charming Italian atmosphere? You will love Madesimo. This little village is situated far up in north Italy, close to the Swiss border. Getting there from Milano is easy. The ski system is relatively small but still modern and well-managed and great for three to four days skiing. With some luck, the famous Canelone off-piste run will be open during your visit. Anyone with even the slightest interest in off-piste skiing must try this.

Madesimo is so much more than just top-quality skiing. Italy is famous for its cuisine, but still, the food and the variety of restaurants here are something quite unique. In addition, the natural setting is gorgeous here, with a wonderful forest for off-piste skiing.
