Our view on Madesimo ski holidays

Madesimo is a superb ski resort where people return year after year to enjoy the family skiing and soak up the local atmosphere. There is not much in the way of linked skiing, nor is the night life going to keep you awake until the early hours apart from Friday and Saturdays when the weekenders from Milan arrive. But, what you do get is a very welcoming authentic alpine village, lots of fun and excellent value for money.

Overall, a fantastic ski resort with lots to offer both on and off the slopes. For more information on skiing in Madesimo, please see our Madesimo resort guide.
