Lake Maggiore is in the Neve Azzurra district, which makes it an ideal starting point for sports activities – and other kinds of activities – near the lake during the winter.
Mount Mottarone never fails to impress. The peak of the “mountain of seven lakes” is easily reachable from Stresa and the 360° view from the peak is unique – the Alps and seven different lakes can be admired, hence the nickname.
There are 7 ski-lift facilities and 21 km of ski slopes suitable for all kinds of skiers (from beginners to experienced skiers). Skiing lessons, snowboard classes, walks with snow shoes and lots more can be arranged.
Other interesting ski areas such as Domobianca, S. Domenico Ciamporino, Valle Formazza and Alpe Devero are quite close. Macugnagaand Valsesia are great for heliskiing.
People who are not great sports fans can enjoy tasty traditional dishes that are even tastier when eaten enjoying the view of a fantastic snowy landscape…
