Backcountry skiing

Discover the wild side of the Ponte di Legno-Tonale ski area by trying out the local backcountry skiing. You’ll find a mix of lengths and levels, from simple slopes to multi-day tracks that require experience and technique. You can access these areas with a ski pass and dedicated rental and safety equipment.

Follow tracks from the forest road that leads to Val Presena to Passo Paradiso (2,585 m/ 8,480 ft) and climb the Presena Glacier up to 3,069 m (10,068 ft) for breathtaking views of Monte Adamello (3,539 m/ 11,610 ft) and Pian di Neve (3,116 m/ 10,223 ft). Ski back down the way you came, or follow the on-piste slopes. Alternatively, take the ski lift to Passo Paradiso and follow the Pisgana track up to Passo Pisgana (2,953 m/ 9,688 ft) for a short uphill followed by a 2 km/ 1.2 mi descent down to Ponte di Legno.

For a multi-day experience, try the two-day tour of Monte Adamello, complete with 1,400 m/ 4,593 ft elevation gain and 3,000 m/ 9,842 ft of vertical drop. To access the route, take the ski lift to Passo Paradiso, where you can reach the Città di Trento mountain hut.

From here, you can climb to the top of Monte Adamello before descending to Ponte di Legno from Passo Venezia (3,227 m/ 10,587 ft).

Check the weather and read the local avalanche warning reports when backcountry skiing or going off-piste. We always recommend going with a guide. However, if you go alone, ask local staff about risk factors and local information and know your level and limits. Always take an avalanche beacon, shovel, and probe when skiing off-piste.
