During February half term, Freshtracks has added a fun-filled retreat to one of the most stunning destinations in the Alps. Need a resort suitable for all the family? Look no further than Passo Tonale. 

Passo Tonale is between the Italian regions of Trentino and Lombardy, with extensive access to plenty of ski terrain. The resort is known for its beautiful blue sky weather due to its south-facing location where the sun isn’t overshadowed by surrounding mountains. Its high altitude of 3015m on the upper slopes combined with its snowmaking capabilities makes it very snow sure throughout the season.

Escaping the half term hoards is easy with the 100km of pistes which are perfect for beginners and intermediates, ranging from cruisy blues to wide open red runs. There is a 3km black run for the more advanced skier and some excellent off-piste to explore too. More adventurous families will also appreciate accessible off piste options and a great snowpark to try, whatever your level. For a family with mixed abilities, Passo Tonale will have plenty to offer on the mountain.

On this Freshtracks holiday, you will be based at the three-star Hotel Gardenia. The hotel has a swish alpine interior with traditional mountain vibes. After a day on the slopes, the wellness area is a great place to unwind in the sauna, Turkish baths, and a hot tub. The hotel provides a tasty breakfast buffet in the morning along with an authentic Italian cuisine buffet served with local wine in the evening.

Once a week the resort has an activity day especially for kids with small organised ski races, illuminated runs, face painting, and hot chocolate. There’s shopping at the charming town of Ponte di Legno for those who want to take a break from skiing. The gondola ride up to the top of the Plescena Glacier at 3000m is a real treat. Enjoy a bottle of bollicine wine, considered a real local delicacy, whilst admiring the spectacular views from the new mountaintop restaurant, or treat the kids to an authentic Italian pasta dish.

The town stretches across one road so it’s easy to get around and there’s no danger of getting lost in the resort, which is ideal for families who want to keep an eye on their kids without too much hassle. There’s a great selection of restaurants too if you fancy a night out or a drink.
