Longer and warmer days on the slopes makes Easter a great time of year to go skiing. The milder temperatures mean you won’t have to pack so many thermals, making more room for sunglasses and sun cream - there should be lots of opportunity for basking in the lovely Italian sunshine at Madonna in the spring.
You can usually ski until April in Madonna di Campiglio: skiing is possible up to an altitude of 2600 meters, so snow tends to stay well preserved into the end of the season. Get the lift up to Passo Groste, which has the highest runs in the area – you can choose between 2 blues and 2 reds from the top, which all go in to the lovely blue 17, which means there’s a good amount of variety for different abilities.
If you’re travelling with a group of friends, head over to the Rifugio Boch up in the Grostè sector, where there’s a DJ and dancing on the terrace from 2pm every day.
Madonna is perfect for families looking to ski during the school holidays. Bambini are taken good care of by highly skilled instructors and there are plenty of things to keep children occupied from snow playgrounds to inflatable fun lands.
This is our favourite time of year to enjoy the scenery, with clear spring skies you can really appreciate the Dolomites for how majestic they really are and thanks to warmer weather, you’ll want to spend much more time outside than in. Some hotels have deckchairs on their sun terrace, the perfect way to relax if you’ve worn yourself out skiing (or just fancy being lazy – you’re on holiday after all...). Many restaurants have the option to eat outdoors too: Chalet Fogajard is a great place to enjoy simple Italian favourites with a fabulous view of the surroundings.
