12 December — 8 April
The Paganella – Andalo resort is located in the Italian mountainous area Altopiano della Paganella/Dolomiti di Brenta/Lago di Molveno (Trentino-Alto Adige region, Trentino). There are 42 km of ski slopes for skiing and snowboarding with 14 ski lifts. The winter sports complex is located between 1040 and 2125 meters above sea level.
The town of Andalo is located in the Italian region of Trentino – Alto Adige on the Paganella plateau in the province of Trento. Andalo is located at an altitude of thousands of meters above sea level in the Val di Non and is famous for its ancient origins – for the first time this place was mentioned in the XII century.
Today it is a very popular ski resort in Italy, especially among Italians themselves. Most of the locals are engaged in tourism: they rent hotels and apartments, maintain small restaurants and trattorias, work as instructors and tourist guides.
This small ski resort, which may not be called exquisite or overly popular with tourists, has its own characteristics and advantages.
Due to its geographic location, Andalo enjoys good sunny weather almost all winter.
Snow cannons are installed on almost all slopes, guaranteeing good skiing from December to April, regardless of weather forecasts. The resort is known for its perfectly groomed trails. After all, the US team regularly trains here. The total length of the tracks is about 50 km, most of which are “red” – difficult.
The fact that Andalo is not a very popular ski resort among tourists is not at all a disadvantage. On the contrary, the absence of a huge number of people makes skiing more comfortable. There are much fewer lift queues here than at other resorts, even in high season.
Andalo is part of the Skirama Dolomiti shared ski pass, which also includes other popular resorts such as Madonna di Campiglio, Val di Sole, Monte Bondone, Pinzolo and others. You can get to any of them on the free ski-bus, which runs between the ski resorts of the Dolomites all winter.
The resort of Andalo will appeal to both skiers and snowboard fans. Just do not forget that almost all slopes in the Andalo ski resort are designed for experienced skiers and snowboarders. Most of the runs are challenging reds as well as impressive blacks. Somewhere in the middle of these giants you can find “blue” pieces. On the other hand, beginners can sunbathe for a great mountain tan.
