The only way is up  

Let Trentino’s ski lifts whisk you to a world of soaring peaks and staggering views

Fancy a walk amidst our magnificent mountains? There’s no need toil your way up from the valley floors.

Many of our ski lifts are open between June and September, and offer quick access to summits, views and mountain refuges which would normally be the preserve of the super-fit. Follow the links below for a complete guide to what’s open, where.

Val di Fassa

From beginning to end, the Val di Fassa is ringed with Dolomite peaks, and many of its lifts are open to bikers as well as climbers and hikers. Departure points include Canazei, Vigo, Pozza di Fassa, Moena and the Passo San Pellegrino. 

Val di Fiemme

Two nature parks, hiking and biking trails, zip line parks, via ferrata and an alpine coaster are among the many summer attractions in the Val di Fiemme, and they’re served by lifts right along the valley, from Alpe Cermis to Passo Rolle. MTBs are welcome. 

Altopiano della Paganella

Ride the lifts up from Andalo and Fai della Paganella, and you’ll be treated to stunning panorama of mountains peaks, and a shimmering view along Lake Garda. From Molveno you can access the eastern wall of the Brenta Dolomities. All three lifts allow free carriage of MTBs.

Madonna di Campiglio

Get closer to the Brenta Dolomites using the lifts of Madonna di Campiglio and Pinzolo in Val Rendena. They provide quick access not only to hiking and biking trails, mountain refuges and via ferrata, but also the pristine landscapes of the Adamello Brenta Nature Park.

Val di Sole

At five points along the valley you’ll find lifts waiting to whisk you skywards. Among them is Pejo 3000 cable car - the starting point for some mountain walks on the Ortles Cevedale mountains - and a brand-new gondola to the Presena glacier. 

San Martino di Castrozza

Three lifts are open in the area – the Colverde and Tognola cable cars, and the Paradiso chair lift. Each serves up magnificent views of the Pale di San Martino, one of the most dramatic of all the Dolomite massifs.   

Alpe Cimbra

Here, the broad plateaux are tailor-made for long bike rides and easy walks, and the Fancolini-Sommo Alto and Serrada-Dosso Martinella lifts will get you off to a flying start. The Bertoldi-Tablat lift in Lavarone is also open at weekends.

Brentonico - Monte Baldo

The Malcesine-Monte Baldo cable car and Prà Alpesina chair lift are both open in spring and summer, turning the Monte Baldo massif into a giant playground for walkers, paragliders and bikers. The views over Lake Garda are mind-blowing.
