Madesimo is a ski resort located near the border with Switzerland in the extreme northern part of Italy. The district with its 50 km of slopes also reaches Campodolcino, Motta and Val di Lei. In recent years there has been a real revolution with several new lifts that testify to the desire to relaunch the ski resort with great commitment. 4 covered four-seater chairlifts with automatic coupling, two hex-seater chairlifts, an eight-seater gondola and the first underground funicular in Italy. A cable car and several other chairlifts complete the park, which is still undergoing major modernization projects.
The slopes for alpine skiing in Val di Lei and those that descend from Colmenetta are very spectacular, while for the more expert we recommend the Canalone slope, well known for its beauty and difficulty. For those for whom the day is not enough, Skiarea Valchiavenna also offers the possibility of night skiing on Saturday evening and Wednesday evening thanks to the evening opening of the Larici cableway with the possibility of dining at the arrival of the cableway itself at the Larici Refuge. The cableway will work from 19:00 to 22:30.
Snowshoeing is organized by the alpine guides on nights when the moon is full, towards panoramic destinations surrounding the town of Madesimo, such as the Andossi ridge, the enchanted plain of Montespluga and Motta. The choice of itinerary is usually made in consideration of the snow and weather conditions.
