Passo Tonale is a great all-round resort, with its centre offering everything you could ever want from a fantastic ski break.

Skiing: the best spots Passo del Tonale ski holidays:  the best spots

Passo Tonale is regarded as a particularly great resort for beginners. Not only does the resort boast an excellent ski school with a number of qualified instructors, but most of the resort’s blue runs are lined up side-by-side: you can easily switch to more difficult runs as your skills improve over the holiday. One of the best runs for improving your skill is the blue trail which runs into the neighbouring town of Pontediligno: it offers a great mixture of both steep and gentle slopes. Of course, experts will also find themselves well catered for: skiing on the glacier is an unmissable opportunity.

Of course, there’s also a heated indoor pool in the centre of town, as well as a health spa, gym and beauty centre: there’s no better way to relax after a hard day on the slopes than with a luxurious treatment or two!

Apres ski Passo del Tonale ski holidays: a pres ski

Passo Tonale is a great choice for those looking to enjoy budget ski breaks: the cost of drinks and meals is reasonable compared to neighbouring resorts, and there’s always happy hour to consider! It’s also a little less lively than other Italian resorts, but this makes it an ideal destination for families, couples and groups of friends seeking relaxation. Why not sample a spot of nighttime skiing as the sun goes down? Not only can you enjoy a torch-lit descent down the mountain, but an evening followed with warm, mulled wine, traditional Italian dishes, and a fantastic fireworks display.
