Passo Tonale (Ponte di legno-Tonale)

Ski resorts in Italy
75 miles of varied ski slopes, first class afterski and skiing all year long - doesn't that sound appealing? Passo Tonale in Italy is part of the large Adamello ski area, which also includes the Presena Glacier, Temú and Ponte di Legno. What skiers love most about Passo Tonale is the versatile skiing.

The benefit of Passo Tonale is that there is something for everyone who loves alpine skiing. Families appreciate the resort thanks to the wide range of sunny green and blue slopes. Freeriders can take the lift up towards the top of the Presena Glacier. At an altitude of more than 9,800 feet, you can expect a fall height of 5,900 feet. This is a very intense slope and it is marked as a black piste, although most of it will seem more like a red piste, so there is no need to worry too much! If you are in the mood for a steep slope, there are many other off-piste variations to get you back down.

Be in the Passo Tonale Sports Act 2017 (V8). Be a very positive surprise. Went a bus with Slopetrotter and was almost shocked at how much better comfort in the buses it has been since the 90's. The town of Passo Tonale is basically a single main street, but it is close to everything and it is absolutely wonderful to only have 50-100 meters from hotel to lift in the morning. Skiing is clear in the nicer spectrum and suits families and middle skiers. There are really tougher slopes on the glacier side where Pisto Paradiso is sitting in the legs for a good while. Lovely hill where it may be treacherous ice cream during the snow so watch out ... Feels very important to live just in Passo Tonale and not the neighboring Ponte di Legno when Passo Tonale is considerably higher. In week 8 2016 there was quite a snowmobile in the village of Ponte while Tonale had plenty of snow. Other skiing in the area can be classified as cruise-friendly. Fairly varied but no real challenges except a few shorter sections. Do not go off-piste yourself, but apparently there are very good opportunities in the area of ​​those who have that bend. Can really recommend Passo Tonale for families and medium couples. The ski lifts were incredibly short for being a sporting holiday and ski rental really worthwhile. Sun and blue sky 7 days out of 8. Will be happy to return.

Me and my brother stayed 4 nights in Ponti di Legno in mid February last year (2015)
As a result, it would be 4 m snow up at the top of Passo Tonale at 3000 m altitude.
The first two days snowed it during the days (but unfortunately not at night) why the sight was pretty bad.
We went to the bottom of Ponte di Legno's nice slopes. The slopes were well groomed and with fresh snow there was a lot of nice carving in the slopes so I got a lot of bones and had a lot of workouts already the other day.

On the 3rd and 4th day there was a radiant sun (no, a little soldier on the 3rd day) and a new puddernö.
At the bottom of the valley (Passo Tonale) it was about 20-30 cm new snow and we pulled some scratches there before
we went to the top of the other side where there would be 4 m of snow as reported. Very true there was a total
Overcast landscape and after a couple of runs in the marked piste at the top we went to the left (down from the bottom) into one
off-piste area with unlimited snowmobiles. I put up some movies on videos so you can see themselves. It was, at least, my and my brother's best off-piste ride in life. Too bad my skis were a little bit narrow but even more that I dropped my i-phone in deep snow, why my brother's cushion could never be forfeited.

As a ski resort, Ponte di Legno and Passo Tonale are really good. Last year, with our weather and pudding on the 3rd and 4th day, it was absolutely superb. For what's out for festivities, the village of Ponte di Legno was quite crowded and very quiet. I do not know in Passo di Tonale because we were never there any evening.

I visited Passo Tonale week 12 in 2012 to train offpist for two days. Many like me come from Madonna di Campiglio for skiing over the day, when the Skirama ski pass is also valid here. The journey takes 45 minutes. The ski system is no bigger than going through it during a day. As the system is higher up than Madonna di Campiglio, and that's ours, the snow is much better here. The north side has two further stretches up to approximately 2,500 meters. The first morning of tomorrow I went here when the sun later in the day makes the snow worse. There are certainly easy opportunities to go offpiste here earlier this season. The southern part is divided into two areas. Cima Presena, based on Passo Tonale, and Cima Adamello from Pontedilegno. A flat area connects them and there is a connection with the gondola here. The southern part offers a longer season as it is on the shadow side. Cima Presena offers black and red slopes down from 3,000 meters. There are good opportunities for offpiste, especially west of the slopes. Cima Adamello is divided into two gondola stretches and the skiing is down from about 2,000 m. Here there are opportunities for offpiste from the peaks, but by the way, it is pleasant skiing through the woods. Passo Tonale as a place looks like "A one horse town" in a cowboyfilm, or a modern American city in the western United States. A single street that is also the way over the pass. There are all the houses and are quite modern and boring. Can not be a lot of fun here. Seems to be the most Italian here as guests.
In summary, good snow quality even at the end of the season when the system is high up. The system and the resort are small. Best to take it as a day trip from Madonna di Campiglio. If you would stay here for a week, the score would be 2 out of 5. By Börje Hammarling.

Hello! Be in Tonale on a day trip, we were in Madonna the rest of the time. I thought it was okay. A little snowy in some places, but they are because we went late. The favorite back was the black 27th (think it's called so) that was both long and moderately steep. Of course there were also some other fine psics, but the 27th is obviously the best.

There appeared to be very nice offpiste opportunities for all types of skiers, but as said, there was a little bit of snow in the offpiste when we stayed there so it became the most pissed yard.

+ It is located near Madonna di Campiglio


Summary: If you have snow and access to the whole system, I think this is a cruel place for all types of skiers.

Were there in March 2006 and there were two nasty great grandparents in Tonale. Never tried that legno but it's low, so there's still a slush puppy. The village ugly as said but 1900 is a good height to lie on. Frivolous from the hotel window down the snow is always funer than lawn.

Was there Easter 2006. The weather like this late in the season was very variable-one day rain. the second day 30cm snowy and possibly a little sun. But it was enough to get up maybe 500 m so it was constantly 50 cm snowy.

The plant consists of two semi-system Ponte di legno and Tonale. This year, you had to take the bus to Tonale (about 30 min), but for the season 2006/2007 a 5 km long gondola connection will be completed. Even this year, however, you could go skiing from Tonale and back to Pontedilegno (mostly a transport back)

In Ponte di legno, two of the lifts were worn out two-way lifts, but the rest were nice chair chairs. The system is almost completely below the tree line and there are many advanced slopes. Late in the season, it's a bit sloppy but being able to get to the elevator an hour after it opened without a person going there is fine.

In Tonale (1800 meters) there are lifts on both sides. The northern side is dominated by long red and blue slopes. Nice backs if there are some people, otherwise there are many ski schools so you have to look up a bit. This year it fell as a total of 8 m snow here and the snow depth in March was 2.2 m so the snow is no problem at this height.

On the other side of Tonale begins the new Paradiso gondola that faces the Presena glacier. They are not that big, but it leans well and the highest ridge here is 3000 meters. When we were there it was 4 m of snow, of which 50 cm was snowy. From here it is over a mile of skiing with 1700m fall height down to Pontedilegno.

Ponte di Legno is a comparatively cheap place and the food costs just like in Sweden.
4 pizzas = 20 €
Check out the pistemap
http://www.adamelloski.com/totale.html

Even the accommodation about 10 meters from the elevator cost around 150-200 € for a quadruple room.
The village is completely dead, at least when we were there and most people met on every Italian.

This is a good destination considering the good aviation connections with Ryanair in Bergamo. From here it is only about 2 hours to Ponte di legno.

Have been here only twice but the area seems to offer a great potential, good selection of slopes, lifts as well as offpist scratches.
Check out the website and find out the pistemap where marked offpiste rides with a fall height of nearly 1700 meters. (Late in the season one gets to knot at the end.

Unfortunately, I can not write more extensive but I think the area is an explorated gem with summer skiing, close to a large glacier. No Swedish ski tour operator found here even though it is located near Madonna di Campiglio. Well, Sembo has places here.

The resort is ugly and quite sad in the evening. Warning for snow shortage however, winter 2003/2004 was completely imaginative.
