About Passo Tonale…

Passo Tonale is one of Italy’s highest resorts which is a great place for beginners to learn but also has a wider range of intermediate slopes for those with more experience. Situated on the mountain pass at the head of the Val Vermiglio, straddling the provinces of Trento and Lomboardy. Good snow is guaranteed with a resort altitude of 1884m above the treeline.

Due to its specialism for beginners with 100km of piste ideally suited, Passo Tonale is extremely popular for school groups. These beginner nursery slopes are linked to an abundance of blue runs, which allows students to easily progress and push themselves onto more challenging slopes. The bulk of slopes in this resort are dedicated to intermediate skiers and those who take the fast 4-seater chairlift to Cima Bleis will be rewarded with a long 4.5km run surrounded by spectacular scenery. Climbing further on another bubble chair to reach the more challenging Contrabandieri you’re greeted with views across the whole valley. 

The village itself is purpose built and this means that all of the hotels are within walking distance of one of the many lifts and the amenities.

This high level, snow sure resort, is a good choice for Easter ski tours as the majority of runs are situated above 300m and there is also a glacier there too.

If you wish your child to participate in the trip they need to collect an expression of interest form from Mrs Hawkridge and return it by Friday 20th May 2022

If your child is successful in securing a place, our finance team will send you a letter regarding an initial £300 non-refundable deposit which will need to be paid by Friday 3rd June 2022.
