Why take your school trip to Madonna / Folgarida?
Nestled in a beautiful valley between the Brenta Dolomites and the glaciers of Adamello and Presanella, Madonna di Campiglio is a well established resort with great skiing, particularly for beginners, intermediates and snowboarders. There are a variety of picturesque runs, mainly above the treeline, and the ski area extends to include Folgarida, Marilleva, Passo Tonale, and Andalo with an area lift pass.
The centre is well equipped with everything from cafe's to Michelin starred restaurants and lots of Apres ski activity options.
The resort will celebrate it's 70th birthday in 2018, and if you were to plan a trip for January 2018, you may even bump into the Ferrari F1 or Ducati motorbike teams on their annual jolly!
Madonna is also the main point of access to the Brenta Dolomites, with its famous via ferrata, with the ski lift to the Passo Groste taking you directly to the northern end of the via ferrata network.
