Open spaces, warm welcome and safe holidays this winter in Trentino
For a peaceful and stress-free stay
Wide-open spaces and the rhythms of nature have always made Trentino the ideal destination for those seeking balance and well-being in any season. Even during a snowy winter. As a matter of fact, 800 km of ski slopes, 229 ski lifts, 6,000 km of trails and over 1,000 trees per resident are waiting for you In Trentino!
These numbers show that there are many choices for less sporty skiers and tourists and that the chances of ending up in a crowd of people can be limited. That being said, even here in Trentino, where there is a lot of open space, crowds and queues can form.
That is why we are continuing to work hard to ensure everyone’s safety, even during the winter, to make your holiday in Trentino a time dedicated to nature, to having fun and to carefree relaxation. On the ski slopes and in the hotels, snow lodges, ski buses and the restaurants of the coolest ski resorts, you will feel safe because we have set detailed protocols in place that will reduce any risk and will ensure everyone’s safety.
We look forward to seeing you in the same way that we look forward to the first snowfall, confident in our ability to guarantee you not only the welcome we have always taken pride in extending, but also the chance to enjoy your holiday so you can recharge in nature and with the people you love.

Trentino boasts a wide network of local services — buses, ski buses, shuttles and commuter trains — which guarantee transport within the largest towns on the valley floor as well as links between these settlements and the mountain valleys surrounded by countryside. At the moment, the local transport system has resumed operating as normal, though with a number of procedures and measures in place and at reduced capacity to guarantee that its services can be provided while protecting all users. This guide will help you get to know how it works.
In this other guide, we have tried to collect all the information and provisions useful for using the ski lifts that take everyone up to the top of the mountain, the downhill skiing enthusiasts and everyone else!
An extensive network of medical facilities and rapid intervention in emergency situations: these are the two defining features of Trentino’s healthcare system and the service it provides to guests as well as locals. This essential service, together with many others, will ensure that you have peace of mind during your holiday in Trentino. You’ll probably be wondering if the healthcare crisis is under control here in Trentino, if and how the situation is being monitored, and whether there are specific procedures in place in the event of contagion.
We’d like to put your mind at ease. We want to share with you how Trentino has managed the epidemic and what precautionary measures have been put in place to protect the health of guests and locals. In the wake of the COVID-19 healthcare crisis, a task force was set up to monitor the trend of coronavirus infection in Trentino. Hospitals have been reorganised to increase the number of beds in intensive care and a pre-triage system has been implemented with a dedicated area and immediate assistance for people displaying flu symptoms.
To deal with the emergency, a national toll-free COVID number has been set up, active 24 hours a day for each citizen and can be reached by dialling 1500. The single emergency number, 112, should be used for all other emergencies.
Another useful tool created to counter the spread of the epidemic is IMMUNI, the national contact tracing APP, which lets you know if you have been in contact with others who are infected. For more information and to download the app, go here.
What should you do if you think you have COVID-19 symptoms?
If you have a fever, cough or difficulty in breathing or you suspect you have had close contact with a person affected by COVID-19, do not go to A&E or the medical clinics located throughout the territory! Inform management or the owner of the property where you are staying in order to contact the tourist medical service in the area as soon as possible, which will take action with the provincial body for Healthcare Services to carry out the medical examination in safety.
