Pinzolo is a great village, the people are really friendly and there's not the usual 'tourist' feel in the bars and restaurants. The local ski area is a really good size if you're not too demanding a skier, there's anough easy and intermediate stuff to keep you entertained for most of a week, and then one day or two each week it's worth a visit to Madonna di Campiglio which is included on the lift pass.

Madonna has a big area of about 100 miles of runs and I just cruised on and on on long fast reds winding down through the trees. The food in the mountain huts was great and the atmosphere was so relaxes a lot of people just stopped skiing by lunchtime and sat on the terrace getting some rays all afternoon instead.
