I simply love Madesimo. I am living close to Valtellina so i go quite often over there. Although is a medium resort Madesimo has the best lifts I have ever seen in the Alps, all of them quick chair lift so very hard to find a queue. Slopes are very different and you can truly enjoy them Longest slopes (not Canalone) are about 3 km (not too much but still more than ok). For expert Canalone is a must, probably one of the most beaitiful free ski ride in the Alps. It is not expensive and Madesimo is a small pretty village of the Alps... do not know too much about nightlife. Smart location for a family with beginners and recommended for 3 days for experts.
