Excellent for beginners & intermediates
Discover for yourself why so many of our groups take one school ski trip to Passo Tonale and choose to return year-on-year! A high-altitude resort with excellent slopes for both beginners and intermediates, there’s also a huge range of après-ski activities to keep your students entertained. Passo Tonale is a purpose-built resort, and so not as picturesque as some - but don’t worry, that doesn’t mean that it lacks character at all. Rather, the cosy mountain village atmosphere and friendly, hospitable locals make this resort a great choice for your next school ski trip to Italy.
A glacier resort, Passo Tonale caters for skiers and snowboarders of all levels. Beginners in particular are able to progress quickly thanks to the gentle slopes, which are wide and sunny, and reach a top altitude of 3069m. Skiing starts high, at 1800m, which means that the pistes are snow-covered all year round. In general, the resort is fairly quiet due to the absence of big tour operators, so you won’t have to worry about busy slopes or long lift queues either, which really can make the difference when it comes to your school ski holiday.
Wonderful resort for skiers at all levels of experience. The hotel was comfortable and welcoming - making it a great place stay - they really cared. Reps made sure we were well looked after.
