Facilities and slopes

Discover the Valchiavenna Ski Area, the Madesimo ski resort

The Valchiavenna Ski Area is the perfect place to ski in the Alps between Switzerland and Milan, less than 140 km away, in a natural setting of rare beauty on the slopes of the mountains that also host important international alpine skiing events and races.

Access to the Ski Area is ski bus-free from Madesimo, thanks to the ski lifts (cable car and chairlifts) that start from the village, or from Campodolcino with the Sky Express, the underground funicular that in just 3 minutes takes skiers up to 638 meters at Motta, where the lifts start.

Within the Madesimo area, it is possible to ski on black, red, and blue slopes, suitable for different skill levels, perfectly snow-covered throughout the winter season with natural and artificial snow and connected to each other thanks to modern automatic coupling lifts. However, you will have to wait until December 2025 to tackle one of the best Alpine off-piste tracks that attracts many enthusiasts every year: the Canalone (the facilities are being modernized).
