The small, down-to-earth ski station of Vaneze di Monte (1350m) is a 17km drive from Trento and is connected by cable car to its higher counterpart, Vasòn, and the gentle slopes of Monte Bondone (1537m), criss-crossed by 37km of cross-country ski trails and nine downhill runs in winter. On weekends between December and March, Skibus Monte Bondone, run by Trentino Trasporti, wends its way from Trento to Vason and Viote (free with Trentino Guest Card, one way €3, seven-day pass €15).

Monte Bondone's pristine slopes are also home to the Giardino Botanico Alpino, with a collection of Alpine plants from across Europe, as well as an indigenous nature trail.
