Madepark: bigger, better, crazier!

Right on cue for the winter season Madesimo reveals new initiatives within its much appreciated Snowpark. The area devoted to thrills, spills and acrobatics has been hugely expanded almost tripling the original space available and incorporating a range of new facilities. Excellent news for visitors looking for bigger and better challenges in a park which now stretches almost a kilometre in length.
Two completely new areas have been added to the existing MadePark next to the Larici refuge and linked by the modern cable-car system.
The first is known as the Easy Area - designed with beginners to this spectacular sport in mind – and hosts jump and rail. It’s in the upper section of the park and has a pair of boxes and jumps. A little below this is the Jib Area separated by ...

Flying high in Vallespluga
Winter’s at the door and there’s always something new taking off in the upper mountains of Valle Spluga. Take speedriding. This new adventure has rather crept up on us over the last couple of years but has now become a considerable force within our Alpine corner. Acquarela, ...
Fat bikes to the fore
In Alpine areas there’s a new cr aze with a view to enjoying the mountains with a verv e and passion within a rather different discipline. It goes under the name of Fat-bike, and represents the latest trend to consume the Alpine regions during the winter season. Anyone who hangs around specialist fairs or shops ...

Off-piste skiing is not straightforward, Snow conditions away from the standard piste are invariably changeable and you really need to know how to adapt ...
Fun and games
Fun and games By Annarosa Parisi   Learning through play, a revolutionary medium, and perhaps even a little “off the wall” is a prime example of divergent thinking, rooted in the principle of using games as a means of education for both mind and body. Even we ski instructors make good use of it nowadays, especially ...
Pure magic
Pure magic    The mountains have finally abandoned their autumn shades and adopted the purest of winter mantles. The little streets of Madesimo have come alive again and the ski slopes are awash with the would-be sportive of all shapes and sizes. There are a host of events to look forward to in this most ...

High as a kite
Constant wind, a kite, a pair of skis or a board and bags of fresh snow. That’s all anyone needs to practise snow-kiting, an exhilarating discipline which for some years now has been taking the Alpine arc by storm, including the Valle Spluga region. I began to ride the snow towed along by my kite some years ago ...

Simply sensational: ice climbing
Perhaps the most striking natural phenomenon I’ve ever witnessed was on a frozen waterfall during a desperate January with the most extraordinary ‘lion’ sculpture dominating all below. A splendid example of frozen water creating its very own art form. I wasn’t tempted to climb up and say hello, but here’s someone who ...

Within nature itself
Cross-country skiing is a fine alternative to the on-piste action, and an excellent opportunity to maintain your fitness. Cycling and running might not have such appeal during the winter months but heading off along trails on narrow skis remains open to all. But it is worth doing a ...

Free ride a Madesimo
When I contact Martin Soderqvist, he’s in rather a different environment than I expect – there are children in the background equally interested in his attention. He’s on domestic duties at home in Sweden – just outside Gothenburg in fact – but nevertheless very much considering his global winter appointments that he ...
The Canalone
It is possible to present a ski-run as an artistic work, without resorting tom dull prose? I think it is: If you were to fly over it in a helicopter, it would look like one of those ordinary gullies which cross these mountains, and nothing to boats of in a any way as extraordinary or magnificent. If, however, you went ...
Ski excursion on high: Val Loga
The southern peak of Val Loga, at Montespluga is a favourite with ski excursionists and comes highly recommended because of the magnificent views within a particularly striking Alpine environment. The peak forms a veritable ‘jewel’ in the crown which dominates the basin in which the village of Montespluga sits. Val ...

On snow racquets
ISOLA – VAL FEBBRARO – BORGHETT O One of the most memorable outings on snow rackets has to be that which takes in Val Febbraro with its highly evocative corners.

The Flying Circus in back
Acquarela is a seriously complex Kaleidoscopic observation platform for observing the diversity of the human condition. But at the same time it’s a sort of ideal, albeit make-believe, world. A short circuit of alternate energy, the ebb and flow of Alpine conscience, a meeting place for small cuddly bears; all in all a ...
Fraciscio a genuine Alpine heaven
What intrigues the first-time visitor to Fraciscio in winter, a small village at 1300m, just above Campodolcino, is its rather isolated nature, somewhat hidden away compared to the more classic destinations for tourists within Valle Spluga. On the right flank of the valley as you climb up, the village is regarded as ...
