Night skiing

 The fun doesn’t stop when the sun goes down  

Keep the adrenaline pumping after dark when you try night-skiing on Trentino’s floodlit pistes.

The first Trentino resort to gear up for night skiing was Madonna di Campiglio, where floodlit World Cup slalom races have been held on the 3-Tre run since 1998. Now many more resorts have followed suit. And no wonder: with no mountain views to distract you, skiing in a pool of artificial light is an intense and exhilarating experience.

Madonna di Campiglio

The precipitous Canalone Miramonti piste is equipped with powerful floodlights, and has been the setting for many thrilling World Cup slalom races.It can be skied by the public after dark: Book it for at least two hours, 48 hours before you want to ski it, through the Funivie Madonna di Campiglio.

Val di Sole - Passo Tonale

Skiing under the stars is also possible in the Val di Sole, nearby Madonna di Campiglio; on the Biancaneve run in Marilleva and in Folgarida (chairlift Ottava) every Thursday from 21.00 to 23.00. On Passo Tonale, the Valena piste is open on Tuesday and Thursday evening from 20.30 to 23.00.

Val di Fassa

Another popular night-skiing run is the floodlit Aloch black at the impressive Pozza di Fassa Ski Stadium, which drops through a punishing 500 vertical metres. The stadium is usually open on Wednesdays and Fridays from 19.30 to 22.00.

35 "Sunglobe" balloons light up the Colverde run (2 km length and 500 m drop) and the Snowpark, on Thursday and Saturday nights from 19.30 to 23.15. The track winds through a pretty forest and finishes in the centre of San Martino.
