Passo Tonale

Tonale is a small resort set above the tree line on the pass between the regions of Trentino and Lombardy, where the Sole Valley joins the Camonica Valley. The Val di Sole rises from 900m at the bottom of the Marilleva lifts to 3069m at the top of the Presena Glacier.

There are 80km of piste locally covering Tonale and Ponti di Legno, with 45km of artificial snowmaking facilities. An area pass also covers the nearby resorts of Pejo, Folgarida, Marilleva, and Madonna di Compiglio. This is the Brenta Dolomites at their best with a modern lift system that serves all abilities, with special moving mat style chairs making it easier for beginners. From the top of the Presena Glacier, you can ski approximately 12 KM through the wooded lower slopes to Ponte di Legno. A newly constructed chairlift opened in 2007 and gives skiers a rapid return to Tonale.

After a hard day skiing, the lively village offers some excellent apres ski activities, including ice skating, sledding, bars, cafes, a pizzeria, an excellent disco bar, and swimming in nearby Ponte di Legno.
