Skiing in Aprica
The heart of Aprica's ski area is accessed by either a gondola or a chairlift from near the village centre which rise up to Malga Palaboine. From here a variety of easy and intermediate runs descend back down through the trees to the village. Alternatively a succession of chair and surface lifts take skiers to the top of the lifts at Dosso Paso - accessing steeper open snow fields above the treeline. The runs down are graded red and black, including the 2.3km long Benedetti black run which descends a full vertical kilometre down to the village.
The other main way in to the ski area is by taking the Magnolta gondola from the western side of the village. This accesses blues and reds served by a chair and two drag lifts at the top, but the only way back down, besides the gondola, is on the resort's other black, the two kilometre long Inferiore.
A new run, the Superpanoramica is popular with novice skiers, descending over six kilometres (nearly four miles) down from 2000m to town.
About 80% of trails have snow making. The Baradello 2000 ski area was improved for the 2005 season with a new chairlifts and five new runs across all categories added. This area, along with Palabione and Magnolta are all connected. You can also choose to take a day excursion to larger resorts in the area including Bormio, Livigno and St Moritz.
Cross country skiing is big in the Valtellina area with long trails through the national park and altitude circuits in the area.

Gondola uplift also makes it easier for boarders to access terrain anbd avoid the need to take a surface lift.
