Madesimo Reviews

prickly

Homey Home Hill

Posted

Pros: Challenging offpiste at top of mountain, Good snow record and aspect, Fast lifts on lower mountain, Appealing village, Italian charm

Cons: Weekend crowds, Limited onpiste offerings, Slow lifts at top of mountain, Top can close for wind/weather, Tram runs only every half hour on weekdays

Madesimo offers great skiing for accomplished riders when conditions are right, but if the top of the mountain is not accessible or visibility is poor the skiing can be limited. The mountain is empty on weekdays but fills up most weekends as it's an easy drive from Milan area. Season is long and the area often gives the best of itself in spring. Plenty of challenge -- from steep bumps to narrow chutes --  if you know where to look for it, not the best mountain for lower intermediates. Relatively atmospheric pedestrian village with a handful of decent restaurants. Prices are pretty reasonable compared to major Alps resorts.
