Ski area Paganella

With the "Paganella" lift pass, you have access to approx. 35 kilometres of piste (incl. ski routes) and 18 lifts between 1,030 - 2,125 m. From Andalo and the neighbouring resort Fai della Paganella, you can quickly reach the diverse ski area. The primarily intermediate and easy pistes are ideal for families. In the deeper set sections, the ski routes wind through idyllic pine forests and offer beautiful ski pleasure.

On the legendary world cup piste "3-Tre", cracks can burn off steam and match up to heroes like Zeno Colò, who wrote sports history here 40 years ago. Or, test yourself on the 5 km long olympic slope, which transcends an altitude difference of 1,075 m. The European training centre of the United States Ski Team is located here, and the centre offers training opportunities for the team's super-G, giant slalom and combined world and Europe cup participants. At the Paganella peak, wonderful deep snow areas open up. Snowboarders can have a great time in the "Dosson" snowpark.

The ski area also has a lot to offer for families with childres. For practise slopes on different altitudes are prepared for the little skiers. At the Pian Dosson hut on 1,450 m, kids can have fun on a large bouncy castle and try out their first moves on the separated practise area with further inflatable obstacles. On an altitude of 1,333 m, the Kids Park Gagglia offers a mini, child-oriented snowtubing track with colourful tyres.

The lift pass "Combi (5+1)" is valid for all pistes in the ski area Paganella for 5 days, as well as in one of the other Skirama ski areas, such as e.g. Folgarida-Marilleva, Madonna di Campiglio, Pinzolo, Passo del Tonale, Pejo, Monte Bondone or Folgaria for 1 day.
