Macugnaga Ski Resort
Two quiet, pretty villages set at the head of a remote valley, over the mountains from Zermatt and Saas-Fee.
Macugnaga’s skiing is divided into two sections – the Belvedere area and the Monte Moro area. Beginners should start off in the Belvedere ski area which is largely made up of easy runs. Alternatively there are a couple of beginners slopes in the Monte Moro area. Intermediates and advanced skiers should head to the larger Monte Moro area. A two stage cable car takes skiers and boarders up to a collection of long red runs which are perfect for intermediates. Experts have three black runs to choose from or an excellent array of off piste. Guides can also take skiers over to Saas Fee.
There are many hotels and apartments to choose from in Macugnaga – these are located in Staffa and Pecetto. There are seven airports within three hours drive of Macugnaga, with Milan the closest at an hour and a half drive away.
