Three-star hotels, very different from each other in terms of comfort, make up the majority of accommodation facilities in Passo Tonale, and there are some four-star hotels. Most of the hotels are on the main road through the resort, and convenient enough for the ski lifts, however some are quite far from most shops and bars. Apartments are also available, on a road that runs parallel to the main road.
The other option is to stay in the more traditional resort of Ponte di Legno, which shares the Ponte di Legno-Tonale ski area with Passo Tonale.
A few UK tour operators service Passo Tonale and Ponte di Legno, but packages are also available through specialist ski agents.

A former monastery now beautifully converted into a three-star hotel, La Mirandola has retained many of its original features, from the original chapel to the vaulted ceilings in the dining room and piano bar. It’s out of town on the slopes and an easy walk or slide to and from a slope – or there is a minibus service to and from town and the ski lifts. The food has a good reputation, and there’s a stylish spa with a sauna, steam room, and hot tub.
Book it: From £650 with Crystal Ski.
