Whether you're all taking to the piste as beginners or this is an annual ski holiday you've been doing for donkey's years, Passo Tonale's a gem for families.
Beginners can join one of the ski schools, where areas equipped with magic carpets help make first skiing experiences memorable for all the right reasons. Experienced teens will have a ball on the glacier, doing tricks and turns in the Presena snow park. If the whole family is learning or improving together, book a private instructor for quality time together.
Many of Passo's hotels are family friendly, with childcare packages crammed with activities, so tots who aren't yet big enough for ski lessons will be well cared for. More often than not they're very near the piste, making getting from A to B a breeze.
Sledding opposite the Hotel Dolomiti provides hours of fun, while restaurants like Nico's offer a variety of cheap but scrumptious pizzas (Nico's has the added bonus of an arcade room for kids can while parents enjoy a quiet bottle of vino). In previous seasons Ski School Ponte Tonale have dedicated Wednesday evenings to kids with music, face painting, and torch lit walks - some mid-week fun that's well worth looking out for.
