Ponte di Legno

Ponte di Legno, together with the Tonale Pass, represents the very heart of skiing in a unique naturalistic setting located between the Alps, in the Stelvio National Park and the Adamello Regional Park. Ponte di Legno is the undisputed tourist capital of the Adamello Ski area and is certainly one of the most popular mountain resorts in the Alps. In 1912, the Italian Touring Club association defined Ponte di Legno as the “First Italian resort dedicated to tourism and winter sports”. A popular destination for skiers who can count on challenging slopes and forest trails reaching as far as the border with the Temù municipality, truly spectacular runs thanks to the surrounding panorama. Overall, 8 runs are offered, accessible by 5 ski lift facilities.

In addition to ski mountaineering, visitors can also enjoy cross-country skiing made possible by the Val Sozzine centre and even night skiing thanks to a perfectly illuminated ski run. The ski lifts to Ponte di Legno are located just behind hotel Pegrà, while we also have special agreements in place with the ski rental shop conveniently situated right in front of the hotel.

During the summer, the resort offers the full charm of a quiet yet lively mountain village, with a pedestrian area, the square and the vibrant shopping streets. Yet above all, Ponte di Legno is an extremely appealing location for visitors who wish to participate in sports such as trekking, rock climbing (in the gym or on natural rock), cycling or for those looking to indulge in exciting walks in the woods, even through high altitude terrain together with the assistance of expert alpine guides with whom we have special agreements in place.

Biking enthusiasts can take advantage of wonderful mountain biking excursions between the Upper Camonica Valley and the Upper Sole Valley, with 500 kilometres of mountain biking trails immersed in the terrain of the Stelvio National Park, the Adamello Brenta Nature Park and the Adamello Regional Park. For those who prefer road cycling, the demanding ascent on the Gavia pass or the breathless climb of the Mortirolo pass will certainly be your cup of tea, where indelible pages in the history of cycling have been written, by the likes of Coppi and Pantani. The Garnì Pegrà hotel offers you the chance to relive the emotions of great cyclists, with an unparalleled circuit of exceptional climbs.

Tonale Pass

The Tonale Pass, together with the Presena Glacier represent an extraordinary “natural gym” for skiing and for winter and summer sports. A tourist destination of excellence, it is perhaps less worldly than other winter resorts, yet certainly quite well appreciated by professional skiers as well as by beginners, who can count on a number of beautiful and less challenging trails and on a long snow season which lasts from autumn until late spring.

In terms of slopes, visitors will certainly be spoilt by the selection available. This selection includes the mythical “pista Paradiso” black run, covering a distance of 3 km and an altitude difference of approximately 710 meters, as well as the long and panoramic “pista Alpino” which covers a distance of 4.5 km. Both are connected to the Pegrà run, allowing visitors to reach the facilities of Ponte di Legno (as well as the hotel) on skies and recommended for more experienced skiers in terms of technical demand. What’s more, the runs are set in the midst of dense pine forests, in a landscape of incomparable beauty. For those in search of challenging slopes where you can ski until April, the Presena glacier, which offers an altitude of 3,000 meters, can be reached with the pista Paradiso cable car. During the summer, the cable car is also open for climbers and for visitors looking for hiking excursions at high altitude.

The Tonale Pass is also a top destination for those who wish to enjoy some cross country skiing (a 5 km trail is available, similar to the one offered in Ponte di Legno), or for anyone interested in snowmobile excursions. A site also well loved and appreciated by families, the Tonale Pass offers a selection of ski schools, snowparks and a convenient babysitting service available on the slopes. During the summer, the Tonale Pass provides an ideal starting point to get in the saddle of your mountain bike and cycle the incredible trails of the Adamello Bike Arena, yet it is also a popular destination for hiking enthusiasts, in the midst of lush forests surrounded only by the sounds of nature.
