Madesimo is part of the Valchiavenna Skiarea. This ski resort offers 60 km of downhill ski slopes and 20 km of cross country ski trails surrounded by fairytale panoramas and covered in powder snow. The “Canalone” trail with a 1000 m drop over a distance of 3km, is particularly well-known. The slopes are well maintained during the winter season, but the ski resort nonetheless has artificial snowmaking capabilities. There are 3 gondolas and 9 chair lifts.
