Visitor reviews for Madonna di Campiglio Ski Resort
March 21, 2016
Mr Emilio nella from United Kingdom
This is simply the best quality resort in Italy! Fab restaurants; La Zeledria on Pradalago side a must but book a seat upstairs for world class views to die for. Also Chalet Fiat is outstanding; almost Michelin star service and food in the a la carte part to the left of the self service run by Dante. Runs are great and serve intermediate best but challenge us experts skiers as well. Snowboarders rejoice for the best Snow Park in Italy on Groste side.

Just returned from another superb ski trip to Madonna. Despite the poor snow across Europe so far this season, Madonna remains as the premier resort for snow making and keeping the pistes in great condition. Top class hotels and lovely town. Highly recommended!

At Madonna di Campiglio we stayed at the Miramonti Hotel at February half term. We loved the hotel, food and the staff are very friendly.
The skiing was great and good snow which had been topped up the previous week and we had a few cm during the first few days.
The runs are generally easy even the blacks aren't that challenging. We found the piste map a little confusing and some of the areas where the main ski runs join get a little crowded. However for half term we found it very quiet with few queues generally. Late afternoon most runs were desolate.
It has a lovely town with great shops.
I could not recommend the resort enough for families (there's very little apres ski) wanting good easy quiet skiing in a lovely town with fantastic scenery.
I would definitely go back if there weren't so many other resorts to try.

My family are from Carisolo, 7km from Campiglio. This town is a gem and that is proven by Ferrari and Ducati who use the resort for their annual holiday in mid-January. The scuola Nazionale has great English speaking instructors for skiing and snowboarding.The Boch Refugio is very lively for lunchtime during peak season with dancing on outside tables a must whilst a glass of Bombardino or Grappa musn't go a miss. The Belverdere restaurant opposite the Belvedere ski run in Campiglio itself is second to none or Le Roi pizzeria, near the centre, is also very good. The bar Suisse is great but can be pricey depending what you drink. Tucked away next to Belvedere Rest is the creperie great for nutella and banana pancakes or any you desire. Greatest shop after Harrods is Lorenzetti nearby and the best hotel is Lorenzetti located on the approach road with its own coach to drop you off and pick you up. I've introduced over 20 friends over the years and they ALL go every year. Excellent all round resort especially for intermediate skiers and less.

We have just come back from a brilliant week skiing in Madonna di Campiglio. We stayed at the Hotel Lorenzetti and cannot recommend it enough. The hotel is luxurious, the staff more than helpful and the food exquisite. Although there was no fresh snow, we still had a great week skiing and majority of the runs were open.

Last week I spent a magnificent week there, beautiful sunny weather and powdery slopes. Thanks to the modern lift facilities their are almost no lift queue's. The views are wonderful, with all those snowy pine trees. The restaurants can be a bit expensive so head up to Marilleva (slope connection) for cheaper restaurants.

Just back from Madonna. Unbelievable amount of powder during 26/27 Jan. At least 100cm of new snow. Excellent runs; good mountain & town based restaurants.

We have just spent a magnificent week in Madonna-di-Campiglio. The snow was great,the slopes were quiet over christmas and we never saw a lift queue all week. We stayed at the Garni Dello Sportivo hotel run by Georgio Stefani and his family.
The Pradalago lift station is almost in his car park! and you can ski to within 75 yards of the door.
All the runs were prepared well and since our return they have had lots of new snow January should be fantastic.
