Skiing & ski touring in the Dolomites

The Dolomites in Northern Italy are fantastic for skiing and ski touring.

One of the most beautiful skiing areas in Northern Italy is the Andalo-Paganella area in the Dolomites. It offers a total of 58 kilometers of tracks and thus is suitable for every level and age. The fact that the area is compact and clear makes it the ideal destination for families with children.

The tracks of Andalo-Paganella are well prepared and there are many mountain cabins where you can have a bite and a drink at an affordable price. Because of the favourable location on a large rock tableland it is often sunny. Also you will find that there is normally enough snowfall although in lack thereof many snowcanons will solve that problem. Rates for a ski pass are below the European average. All of this makes skiing in Northern Italy very attractive!

Tracks of Andalo-Paganella

The highest point in this skiing area is 2.125 metres and the total amount of height drop is 1.125 metres. Therefore you’ll find that there are many red tracks. Due to the relatively small size of the area and the amount of red tracks this area is very suitable for the average winter sportsman or for families with somewhat older children.

Tourskiers have a choice of various routes in the Brenta Dolomites. Ski touring (sci-alpinism in Italian) means that you walk up to go down (off-track) beautifully. Molveno proves to be the perfect starting point for this. There are 15 different tracks set up for you. These are tours in Molveno and in the close surroundings like Passo Campo Carlo Magno and Pinzolo. Go ahead and view the many different tracks on the website of Passione Montagna or enquire more personal information and tips at our reception.

Transport to the tracks

The ski area Andalo-Paganella is situated only a 5 minute drive away from Hotel Lory. You will get there by our own shuttle bus, a free service we offer especially for our guests. Another option is to take the ski bus, which departs 30 metres from our hotel.

Skilifts in Andalo-Paganella

In the area you find no less than 14 lifts. There are 11 chair lifts and 3 gondola lifts. There are hardly any or no waiting times at the lifts. View this page for the current departure times.

Ofcourse you are also very welcome in the cosy bar of Hotel Lory! Andalo offers apres ski since the winter of 2020 by opening Bar ‘Laghet’, exactly there where we pick you up with our shuttle bus.
