Start of the ski season in Trentino

Thanks to the first snowfalls, Trentino is ready to welcome Alpine skiing enthusiasts in the weekends to come. After the Passo Tonale - Presena Glacier opened last weekend, ski facilities in the Madonna di Campiglio ski area this weekend. And more snow is expected in the Dolomites.

A snow-enveloped and evocative landscape will greet the early opening of ski slopes in Madonna di Campiglio, where ski enthusiasts will be able to ski across the broad Grostè area. This area will reopen on the weekend of 24-25 November. These pistes will be added to the ones already open on the Presena Glacier area above Passo Tonale, where there has been up to 2 meters snow.

Given the expected heavy snowfalls in the next few days, other ski areas will follow suit – Paganella Dolomiti and Alpe Cimbra ski areas. In all the other ski resorts, opening will be continuous from 6 December.

Easy access to our winter resorts with the Fly Ski Shuttle and Flixbus

In the winter, a holiday in Trentino starts at the airport, thanks to the Fly Ski Shuttle service. Every Saturday and Sunday, from December 8 to 31 March, there are shuttle-bus services from Verona, Bergamo, Milan Linate, Milan Malpensa and Venice airports to all of the most famous winter sports resorts in Trentino.

From Verona, Bergamo, Milan Malpensa and Milan Linate the shuttle takes tourists directly to Madonna di Campiglio and Pinzolo, Val di Sole, Val di Fassa and Val di Fiemme and San Martino di Castrozza. From Venice, the shuttle includes a stop at Treviso airport and serves Val di Fiemme, Val di Fassa, and San Martino di Castrozza.

All lines stop in Trento and tickets can be sold from the city to the different ski resorts at reduced prices.

There are shuttle buses running directly to Trentino’s resorts from several city centres, too – courtesy of low-cost carrier Flixbus. From December 7 there are bus connections leaving from Milan and Bergamo Orio al Serio airport to Pinzolo and Madonna di Campiglio in the Brenta Dolomites, to Folgarida and Malè in Val di Sole and to Cles in Val di Non. Service runs on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays.

Safely on the slopes

To ski down a slope requires responsibility and the knowledge of a set of rules that can significantly reduce the risk of injury to yourself and to other skiers, but that do not reduce the fun you can get out of this sport. You are not alone on the mountain slopes. This is why you must watch out and concentrate on choosing the best path and foresee the movements of those in front of you, especially when you are overtaking them. In order to have fun but safely, you must keep a speed that is suited to your skill level, to the conditions of the run and visibility. Moreover, you must always slow down when approaching a crossing. Take time for a break, possibly without drinking alcoholic beverages, but always stop on the sides of the run if you want to admire the view or take a selfie. In Italy, wearing protective helmets is mandatory for children aged up to 14, but it is recommended for adults too. Any dangerous or imprudent behaviour may be fined by the security and law enforcement officers (police, Carabinieri, forest rangers) on ski slope patrol service.
