Summary

Madesimo gets five stars in our fast lifts ratings; pity extent only gets one. If you are planning a week it is not ideal, but the mountain has something for everyone and the system copes well with weekend visitors. The village spreads along both sides of a river, a couple of hours from Bergamo or Milan.  The slopes have an almost equal share of blue and red runs that make great intermediate territory, although there are a few notable challenges too – including the classic Canalone ski-route. There’s a good beginner area and easy uncrowded blue slope served by its own chairlift. For a resort with a respectable altitude and a generally quiet and queue-free mountain, it is worth considering. Snowmaking covers two-thirds of the runs, all on the lower slopes.
