Mezzana Ski Resort Guide & Reviews Ski Area, Apres-Ski, Things to See & Do
Mezzana is a small traditional alpine village sitting in the beautiful Val di Sole within the Brenta Dolomites. With The Stelvio National Park to the north and the Adamello Brenta nature Park to the south, Mezzana is one of those pretty old villages that time forgot.
Whilst quaint, charming and steeped in history, Mezzana delivers a rich ski holiday experience without the fuss and high prices of some of the household name resorts plus the ski area is vast.
The après-ski is fairly relaxed and relatively quiet when compared to some of the larger and more well known resorts such as Ischgl and Chamonix. However, there are plenty of bars and restaurants where you can be guaranteed excellent local cuisine and wine.

Not one of the best ski areas for technically demanding terrain but enough to keep most advanced skiers busy for a week.
