Ski: The main ski resort of Febbio is only 15 minutes away. Recently (March 2010) Guilliano Razzolo, a local boy, returned from the Winter Olympics in Vancouver with a gold medal for downhill slalom. The Febbio resort is extremely well designed with a good beginners' slope at the base, near shops and cafes and with a moving escalator and snow machine. Then there are chair lifts. There are over 20km of pisted slopes with a good variety of grades of slopes from the beginner to experienced skier. There is also a snowboard park.
There are also many off piste routes as the locals take the chair lift up and ski/board down the walking routes of the summer.
There are also quite a few ski/board hire shops and you can also try Nordic or cross country skiing or snowshoeing. It is not a busy or crowded resort, in fact it is very quiet. It is really a wonderful big playground in the winter!
