The pass Passo Tonale separates two valleys- Val di Sole and Vallecammonica. It is an area characterized by sunny weather. The massifs Ortles-Cevendale and Adamello-Presanella offer charming panoramas. The resort at the foothill of the glacier Presena (3000 m above sea level) offers perfect conditions for skiing throughout most of the year. The total length of the ski slopes is almost 100 km. They are all equipped by fast modern lifts. There are all types of ski slopes in Passo Tonale (1883 m above sea level) , from gentle slopes for beginners to the most demanding slopes for experienced skiers. It is possible to get to the saddle Paradiso (2585 m above sea level) by a cableway on the northern side of the valley. You will find the renowned black ski slope there- nearly 3 km long, or you may continue further to the glacier Presena, where you can ski practically all year long. 19% of the ski slopes is black, 50% is red. The less difficult slopes are located in the southern part of the resort. The ski-slopes in Passo Tonale are connected with the ski slopes of Ponte di Legno in the upper part of Vallecamonica, as well as with the ski slopes in Temú, which are convenient for experienced skiers.
