With 18 pistes and 10 ski lifts, Montecampione is one of the main points of reference for those who choose Brescia’s mountains for their skiing outings.
Indeed, the ski area has an extremely advantageous position, on a splendid panoramic terrace with view of Lake Iseo, a few km from Franciacorta, shopping centres, and all the main amenities. It is possible to easily reach it just for a half day of fun.
It is in this evocative landscape that the fantastic adventure of Elena, Nadia, and Sabrina Fanchini started. The three Italian athletes from Montecampione are still deeply attached to the mountain which saw them grow and become internationally acclaimed champions. Come see what we have to offer!
This ski area develops inside a large basin protected from the winds. With abundant snow and a pleasant exposure to the sun even in the winter, Montecampione offer a safe ski experience. There are ten ski lifts, all open: 8 chairlifts, 1 ski lift, and one conveyor belt for the ski school. They depart from the residential area of Montecampione at 1,200 m above seal level and are connected to each other, with no need to use the car.
Suitable for all levels of expertise and age, the 18 pistes stretch for 30 kilometres up to an altitude of 2,000 m. Families and expert skiers will find 3 blue, 11 red, and 4 black pistes, plus children and beginner areas and snowmobile tracks. There is something for everyone, from beginner slopes to thrilling blacks like Canalone and Secondino.
Most pistes are served by an efficient computerised artificial snow system, of which Montecampione boasts the first such equipment.
The magnificent view from the ski area is very well known. It stretches from Lake Iseo below to Monte Rosa and Bernina mountains.
Skiing and much more: among the many activities offered in Montecampione are snowshoes, ice skating, indoor pool, restaurants, shops, cinema, events, and festivals. In addition, in the summer the area is a hiking spot thanks to the beautiful trails that criss cross the plateau (Plan) at 1,800 of altitude.
Montecampione is undergoing an exciting renovation process, which will develop the whole potential of this beloved ski area.
The old artificial snow system is being replaced. The creation of the new panoramic piste is under way, starting on top of Mount Corniolo at 1,790 m of altitude down to 1,200 m along a spectacular track. In addition, the other pistes will be improved and leveled. Mountain huts will be built on top of the slopes to take advantage of the beautiful views of Montecampione. Finally, in the 2020-2021 winter, the Le Baite chairlift will be reopened. It will start from Plan di Montecampione at 1,800 m above sea level.
