This page will tell you all you need to know about transfers to Passo Tonale a ski resort in Skirama Dolomiti Adamello-Brenta, Italian Dolomites with 87km of Piste and altitudes ranging from 1890m to 3030m. This resort is part of the Skirama Dolomiti Adamello-Brenta area with access to 380km of downhill skiing, served by 150 ski lifts. In addition to the skiing in Passo Tonale itself (87km of pisted ski runs), the appropriate ski Lift Pass will allow you to ski or snowboard in the other Skirama Dolomiti Adamello-Brenta ski resorts of Andalo, Fai della Paganella, Folgaria - Lavarone - Fiorentini, Folgarida / Marilleva, Madonna di Campiglio, Monte Bondone, Pejo, Pinzolo and Ponte di Legno. The ski resort itself is above 1500m, so skiing or boarding back to the resort is usually possible. With pistes above 2500 metres, skiing and snowboarding is assured throughout the season.
Passo Tonale's 100km of runs serve skiers of all standards. Trails are generally wide, sunny (sometimes windy too!) and above the treeline. There are six beginner lifts at village level - which unlike in many ski resorts is snowsure all season round.
Intermediates perhaps have thre most to enjoy. A local favourite is the 4.5km run down from the Cima Bleis covered quad chair, or the Valbiolo trail to the east, accessed by another fast quad. For experts, the Paradiso run is one of the best, dropping a stomach-lifting 700m over its 2km length. The world famous off piste Pisgana slope is also here, one of the most challenging in Europe, at 14km long with a 2000 metre vertical drop - one of the world's greatest. Travel by ski lifts from Passo Tonale to Bocchetta degli Sciatori (2980m), descend to Rifiugio Mandrone (2449m) then climb up the Passo Valletta to the peaks of Monte Venezia (3290m). After admiring the stunning view you begin your descent along the western Pisgana hanging glacier.

Tonale Pass (In Italian, Passo del Tonale), situated at an altitude of 1883 meters (6178 ft.) above sea leavel is a high mountain pass in northern Italy across the Rhaetian Alps, between Lombardy and Trentino. It connects Valcamonica and Val di Sole. It is delimited by the Ortler Alps to the north and the Adamello range to the south. This pass plays host to many hotels and shops for tourists in the winter, as the land around the pass is used for winter sports - mainly skiing (see Adamello Ski Raid) and snowboarding. Located on the administrative border between the province of Brescia and the province of Trento, urban planning has developed in recent decades outside of the rules, with excessive speculation which led to the strong contrast between the architecture, definitely outsized, and surrounding environment, destroying permanently the serene mountain landscape that characterized him even in the sixties of the twentieth century.
