Paganella Ski Resort

Sitting on the high plains of Paganella facing the peaks of the Trentino Dolomites and overlooking the beautiful lake of Molveno, Paganella has maintained its rich flavour of Trentino’s mountain heritage. With access to 50km of groomed piste, scenic tree skiing and a snow park, there is plenty for skiers and boarders to explore.

Paganella has some fantastic nursery slopes for beginners, as well as some more challenging red cruisers for intermediates. For those looking for a physical challenge, there are some great mogul runs lying above the town.

From Paganella, skiers can access further ski towns on the mountain, Andalo and Fai della Paganella. There is also the possibility to extend lift passes so guests can reach Madonna di Campiglio and Folgaria ski resorts via ski bus too.
