The ski season is kicking off again in Trentino!

With favourable weather conditions, first openings as soon as the end of November

WINTER 2022/2023 – This is it, the new winter tourism season is about to get started! Steep energy prices have done nothing to pause investments by ski lift companies, which have continued to invest in improvements to ski lift infrastructure and the efficiency of artificial snow distribution. State-of-the-art infrastructure and snow machines have been introduced with the aim of saving water, reducing energy consumption and cutting CO2 emissions.

Weather conditions permitting, this means the snow season will begin as normal in the main ski areas of Trentino as early as the last weekends of November, gradually leading to an overall, full opening in conjunction with the long Immaculate Conception holiday, from 8 to 11 December.

Ski aficionados can choose from 800 km of slopes, most of which are distributed between two large ski areas: Dolomiti Superski with 350 kilometres and Skirama Dolomiti-Adamello Brenta with almost 400 kilometres, served by 227 fast and comfortable ski lifts which allow for great time savings getting to the slopes. These are the numbers for the Trentino winter season!

Let’s take a look at what's in store for the 2022-2023 ski season in Trentino.

Skirama Dolomiti: the skiing area in 3D in the palm of your hand 

MOWI SNOW is the new app for winter 2022-23, which lets you explore the skiing areas of the Skirama Dolomiti group in a whole new way: Ski Area Campiglio (Madonna di Campiglio, Pinzolo, Folgarida - Marilleva) Pejo,  Ski Area Ponte di Legno - Tonale,  Paganella Ski, Monte Bondone and Alpe Cimbra - Folgaria, Lavarone

The MOWI SNOW app is free to download and provides the best local outdoor guide for all things snow. Realistic 3D maps of the terrain (including offline), all the ski slopes, snowshoeing and winter hiking, cross-country skiing, mountaineering, sledging and much more. 

Simply select an activity, and immediately find out what the area has to offer! In addition, with its individual and group live geolocation feature, you can always know where you are and how to get around the ski area. 

The app can also keep you up to date, providing timely alerts about the status of the slopes, lift opening and closing times, information and safety on site.





Madonna di Campiglio: “pay per use” rates

Madonna di Campiglio has further expanded online sales with ski pass prices that are dynamic rather than fixed. This means you only pay as much as you ski, based on “pay per use” rates.

The season pass has also become “Starpass”: with this pass, the more you ski the less you pay! Finally, if you purchase the day pass online before the day of use, it is always cheaper than buying it from the ticket desks on the day.

San Martino di Castrozza – Passo Rolle Ski Area: new ski lift opened

New for winter 2022-2023, a new ski lift is being inaugurated on Alpe Tognola: the four-seater Cima Tognola replaces the two-seater lift of the same name, and will start from arrival point of the six-seater Cigolera lift.

It will serve the Tognola-Ces connection and the “Cima” slope, with a comfortable, speedy ascent time to reach the Ces area starting from Tognola.

The six-seater Cigolera and the new Cima Tognola will get you to the peaks of Tognola (2348 m) in just 6 minutes, allowing you to enjoy 5 km of non-stop excitement on the “Fantasia 2000” slope before reaching the bottom, at the start of the Tognola cable car at 1411 m.

Ski Center Latemar: two new slopes and a restaurant

At Ski Center Latemar, the largest skiing area in the Val di Fiemme – Obereggen resort, a high quality skiing season is on the cards with the addition of “Campanil 2”, the new blue slope complementing the renovated Campanil chairlift, a state-of-the-art automatic coupling chairlift with six padded seats that allow for greater comfort, as well as higher hourly capacity, all while consuming less energy.

A second new feature on the Obereggen side of Ski Center Latemar is the Zanggen II slope, a 700-metre long “wall” with 160 metres of altitude difference, featuring an average gradient of over 30% and peaks of 44%. Served by the ReiterJoch chairlift, it is an ideal course for young competitors to put themselves to the test.

Then, at the arrival point of the Tresca chairlift, in the Predazzo municipal area, a new panoramic restaurant, In.Treska, is ready to open its doors. At an altitude of 2200 metres, it’s the most significant new arrival on the gastronomy scene!

A new snowshoeing trail on Alpe Cermis

Meanwhile, the comprehensive offering of Alpe Cermis now features an additional new hiking trail connecting Cermis village, adjacent to the cable car arrival point, to the Paion peak: The spectacular 1.3-kilometre route, named Orizzonti Dolomitici, can be taken on foot, with snowshoes or on touring skis (but only uphill in this case).

The route flanks the Lagorai slope and climbs 210 metres in altitude to the Rifugio Paion refuge, before continuing to the Lo Chalet refuge.

It’s an additional opportunity to fully experience the snow on Alpe Cermis, taking about one hour uphill to reach Paion.

Widened slopes and a larger snowpark at Paganella

Paganella also has something in store for skiers, with two major developments in the ski area. The return slope to Andalo has been widened at the intersection with Cacciatori I (also open for night skiing), Gaggia and Olimpionica I slopes, which will make for a safer and more comfortable return downhill to the departure points and parking areas at Laghet and Rindole.

The Gaggia slope, from the village of the same name to the intersection with the slope mentioned above, has also widened to an average width of 40 metres.

The second new development is the expansion of Snowpark Dosson, which can be accessed from the intermediate stop of the Andalo - Dos Pelà gondola. Specifically, work has been carried out to expand the jump area and to create a dedicated jump for more experienced skiers; a new “fun slope” course has also been created with curves and bumps for children and less experienced teenagers; additionally, the shape of the area’s terrain has been improved in order to optimise the quantity of snow used to create the snowpark.

Moreover, Paganella has made it possible to purchase ski passes online with collection from the Pick Up Boxes and automatic ticket machines, or from hotels providing the service.

Val di Fassa

At Pozza di Fassa in the Buffaure area, the fleet of snow machines has been renewed, and the machines have also all been replaced at the slope of Ski Stadium Aloch, the federal centre where the Italian teams are trained. Aloch is an equipment testing centre and a laboratory for the facilities required for technical snow preparation, and is now also involved in rehabilitating athletes.

As well as the European Cup in December, from 20 to 26 January it will host the Baltic Cup of the Lithuanian Ski Federation.




Alpe Cimbra

The Alpe Cimbra ski area has introduced a new control system for accessing the ski lifts that allows skiers to purchase their ski passes online and load them directly onto their smartphones, effectively eliminating the production, use and disposal of keycard paper and plastic.

Skiers will also have access to 9 automatic ticket machines.
