This is where you will find really good skiing and fabulous food. Take one of the worlds biggest gondolas from Chiesa and on the other side of the mountain is a beautiful valley with long slopes and dusins of small restaurants where they serve fantastic food. You will find a slope for every preference, running from approx 2400 m down... More

Great skiing facilities, beautiful views in summer or winter. Have now been there for the last three years. A really relaxing place in the summer and the rifugio is worth a visit for the view and the food!

The lake is small but super charming and the Rifugio Palu is worthy a visit. You can get to the Rifugio Barchi with the car...I parked instead on the main road, at a much lover level and the climb up is nothing funny, just a not great path up

i had an absolutely brilliant time skiing here, good variety of runs, well maintained lifts, no queuing, hardly anyone on the snow - at points i was by myself skiing on some runs, it was magical. Ski school was excellent. The food was such good value, a bowl of pasta on the mountain was about E6. Ski pass and ski... More

This is a great area of piste that you reach from the cable car from Chiesa in Valmalenco. During the week (particularly Tues-Thurs) it is quiet, but at weekends is swelled with Milanese. There is a good variety of pistes, a good ski school, places for cross country skiing, and is used for competition for free style snowboarding, and when... More

Great quiet ski slopes ideal for beginners and intermediates or even more competent skiers who have a hankering for lots of stops at little rifugios and bars on the slopes. Chiesa often feels like a private ski resort during the week... but it gets very very busy at weekends with the Milanese arriving in large noisy numbers. Still great fun... More
