Madonna di Campiglio resort guide - a general overview
Madonna di Campiglio is a long-established and traditional town that is set in a wooded valley beneath the beautiful Brenta Dolomites with slopes in three linked sectors. The centre of the resort is compact and there is a frozen lake to add to its attraction. The lifts are within walking distance of the accommodation. However, there is also a bus service for those who dread walking in ski boots. Most of the smarter hotels have their own shuttle bus service.
Ski holidays in Madonna di Campiglio attract an affluent Italian clientele which is reflected in the standard of the hotels, shops, bars and restaurants. The village is busy all day and promenading is an early evening ritual. Ski holidays in Madonna are not just about skiing.
Madonna has 65km of ski pistes and interlinked Folgarida has 60km. Since 2012 there is a new link between Madonna and neighbouring Pinzolo which has added a further 25km of trails. So the total area of 150km of pistes creates a reasonably large ski area with something for all standards on piste. There is also enough off-piste to keep stronger skiers happy. Snowboarders are well looked after in Madonna.

Madonna di Campiglio Resort Restaurants
There is plenty of variety but the following are recommended; Da Alfiero, La Tana dell Orso, Stube Rosengarten, Belvedere, Antico Focolare, Roi, Stube Diana and Locanda degli Aritisti.
Madonna di Campiglio Mountain Restaurants
We recommend the restaurant Cascina Zeledria which can be found in the trees off blue run number 7 below Pradalago (off piste 54 just above Fortini lift). At the top of Pradalago there is also a nice little resaurant called Viviani. Other restaurants we recommend are the Cinque Laghi and Malga Montagnoli which is in the lower part of Groste and finally Stopani at top of Groste lift.
Madonna di Campiglio Apres Ski
There is some apres with Stube di Franz-Joseph, Bar Suisse, Bacchus Enoteca and The Alpes - all well worth a visit.
Madonna di Campiglio Nightlife
The nightlife is fairly tame although there are enough bars to keep the 'night owls' content.

The star rating for the ski hire shops is an indication of the level of service; quality and variety of stock, and the space and decor of the shop. It is also a reflection on the price. A five star rated shop will offer great service and equipment but also will charge the highest price. Ski hire shops with a two star rating have less variety and older, poorer quality of stock but are cheapest.
