Macugnaga Ski Resort Guide

Macugnaga is a very small resort that gives the impression that you have traveled back in time. The village itself is full of interesting Thirteenth Century buildings and there is a distinct Swiss feel to the place. This is not surprising given its proximity to the Swiss boarder. The cable car at Macugnaga may be old but it is pretty quick and transports you to almost 3000m. From here there are wide open basins, which given the right conditions offer superb free riding. Get a guide and ski over to nearby Saas Fee. In fact Macugnaga is the Italian equivalent to Le Grave in France; long cable cars serving up big descents and proper off-piste terrain. However, there are enough easy slopes to learn on at Macugnaga too and it is a bit quieter than some of the larger resorts.

Just come back after another great skiing holiday. Conditions are great at Macugnaga. Slopes are empty. It's really a little gem of a place. This is really a fab place to learn to ski or go for a weekend. We stayed in hotel Signal where the hoteliers really are great. They can't do enough for you & the price includes private collection from the airport & the food was great: spinach ricotta was gorgeous.
Don't go expecting amazing apres-ski though.
It's early April and they have just had 70cms of fresh snow which the snow reports website aren't reporting. It's a shame as the local area could have got more business over Easter.
The ski passes are much cheaper than other large resorts: we paid 11 euros during the week & 16 euros on a weekend.
Easyjet fly into the local airport so this reduces the overall price.
