Skiing near Lecco

Skiing close to Milan and the main cities in Lombardy in an unspoilt environment

There are 36 kilometres of slopes in the Piani di Bobbio-Valtorta area, making it the ideal choice for beginners, families and also experts who want to spend a day skiing and then enjoy a truly tasty break in one of the many refuges, all also accessible on foot, in strategic positions close to the slopes.

A single ski pass gives you access to the 12 ski lifts that lead to the various slopes in this area, letting you choose the ones best suited to your ability.

For the more expert, there are plenty of difficult, thrilling slopes, even from a scenic point of view. Like Orscellera, from which, on a clear day, you can enjoy breath-taking views as far as Milan, or the Tre Signori piste, close to the mountain of the same name. While Pian delle Betulle in the Upper Valsassina has 1 black, 3 red and 2 blue slopes totalling 12 kilometres. Here skiers will be blown away by the wonderful view out over Lakes Como and Lugano and all the western Italian and Swiss Alps.

For those just starting out on skis, there are nursery slopes with magic carpets at Piani di Artavaggio, Pian delle Betulle, Cainallo and Alpe Giumello.

Meanwhile, cross-country fans can get back in touch with nature and enjoy the magic atmosphere created by the surrounding environment at Piani di Bobbio, where there is a circuit comprising two 7.5 km circular tracks in Cainallo and Cortabbio di Primaluna.
