Set on a plateau between the Brenta and Paganella mountains in the Dolomites, the Paganella ski resort is one of breathtaking beauty. Its spectacular views include the dramatic peaks of the Dolomites, the Adamello Brenta natural park, and the tranquil waters of Lake Molveno. All of which can be taken in as you ski down the resort’s slopes through its pretty tree-skiing runs.
Skiing in Paganella:
The volume and variety of activities that take place at Paganella make it such an attractive resort. There is a large network of blue and red runs as well as mogul runs for the more advanced skiers. Cross-country skiing, snowboarding, hiking, and tobogganing are also available, meaning boredom or repetition are not options at Paganella. At the Andalo sports centre, there is a 3km cross-country ski ring that is illuminated at night, as well as a 5km ski ring through the woods. Access to the Dosson Snowpark also offers snowboarders the chance to use the range of jumps and obstacles. Another brilliant feature of the resort is its extensive snowmaking infrastructure making skiing during less favourable conditions possible.
For Schools Because:
The resort is also highly accessible directly via the small towns of Andalo and Fai Della Paganella. Alongside its efficient lift system, with lifts from the village and middle stations that reach up to 2,125m, the resort has the convenience factor needed for a school ski trip. With beginner areas distributed throughout the resort, including 4 ski school slopes (2 at altitude and 2 further down near the villages) it makes for a perfect location for large groups of all abilities, as everyone can progress and have fun on the slopes at the same time.
Traditional night skiing is available 2 days a week to top off a thrilling day on the slopes. The local village of Andalo has multiple restaurants to allow for a charming evening after a tiring day on the slopes. Sun terraces and stunning mountain huts also make for relaxing locations for breaks throughout your adventures.
