Why Ski Macugnaga?

Macugnaga is a quiet, picturesque village nestled in a wooded valley at the foot of the east wall of Monte Rosa, which is the second largest mountain in Europe. The resort is split into two parts which are within 15 minutes walk of each other. Pecetto is the quieter end of the village and Staffa, the resort centre, is home to an attractive market square . The resort offers a tennis centre, a football field and a swimming pool, shops and ice skating facilities. It is also perfect for hiking and mountaineering in the summer months.  For evening entertainment there is a good choice of bars and restaurants, all friendly and fairly priced, spread over both sites. There is also a late night disco which stays open until 4am during busy periods.

Sat at an altitude of 1330m, the resort is home to 15 pistes providing 38km of downhill skiing, the longest run being 7km. The 12 ski lifts provide direct access and can transport up to 7,800 people per hour with the highest lift reaching 2970m. The easier runs can be found in Pecetto and there are nursery slopes at both ski sites. Macugnaga has some quality ski schools making it a good choice for learning to ski.  Intermediate skiers can venture higher up for a more testing run. Although the advanced runs are limited there is however some decent off piste skiing available and also heli skiing nearby. The resort has over 30 snow machines assuring both skiing and snowboarding throughout the season at all altitudes.
