    Trento's Alp

    Just out of Trento

    This is one of those friendly little skifields that tries harder and doesn't have pretentions. Just a few kilometres out of Trento on the western side up a windy road there is Monte Bondone (not to be confused with Monte Baldo like I did at first!). With a 7 minute 43 second transit time to the top they are justly proud of their Rocce Rosse chair lift.
    An altitude shift of 809 metres and average gradient of 30% (max 44%) means a great intermediate and beginners skifield with a little expert thrown in.

    Land of enchantment

    Fabulous views

    You can ski, hike, mountain climb, mountain bike, parasail and do many other things in the mountain paradise that lies on Trento's doorstep, known as the Dolomites or, Dolomiti if we want to be politically correct.
    It is one of the great wonders of the world and a skiers paradise that gets far less accolades than it deserves.
    Places such as Val Gardena (where World Cup races are held), Cortina (where the next Olympics will be held) and Val di Fassa (where I spent some time skiing - see my pages) are just some of the areas where you can view some of the most spectacular scenery you'll ever see in your life.

    Half way up the slopes

    If you were to look to the left of this shot you would actually be looking over Trento, but don't go thinking it's only a 5 minute trip to get to this skifield. No, you actually have to go through a pass then cut around the back of the mountains to get to Andola where you can board a gondola.
    Still, the skiing is nice, especially if you're intermediate or beginner level.

    Equipment: There are ample equipment hire places. I simply rocked up and got some gear from "Rent n Go" which is located right at the lift centre. I found them to be quite helpful, like most ski hire places I have ever been to, and the prices were reasonable.
