Winter holiday on Lake Como

  26 January 2015

When the mountain is covered by a white blanket is time of snowshoeing trips, of downhill skiing and snowboarding.

It is fun time for children, with bobsled and luge.

If you stay at Residence Celeste during the winter season it is easy to reach the most beautiful ski resorts of the surroundings!!

In Val Intelvi, only half an hour’s drive, you can reach the slopes of Lanzo Intelvi, or explore the enchanted world of winter mountains with snow shoes on the feet.

The North part of the Lake offers a more direct contact with the mountain if you love wilderness ski.

Crossing the lake by ferry to Varenna and going up the Valsassina, you can reach the Piani di Bobbio and Valtorta Artavaggio, ski area suspended between the mountains near Lecco and Bergamo.
From Bellagio instead you reach the Monte SanPrimo: in Piano Rancio the ski drag lift of “Forcella” and “Pianone” or in Pian del Tivano the cross country ski areas.

Just two hours drive from the Residence Celeste you can choose breathtaking slopes and trails for cross country ski trips in the most popular resorts of Valtellina and Valchiavenna.

The skiing tradition of these areas is the oldest in Italy.

Resorts such as Madesimo, Aprica, Chiesa Valmalenco, Bormio and Livigno have now a international fame.

Across the borders the Monte Tamaro and St Moritz, just an hour and a half, are famous ski resorts of Switzerland.

Stay in our holiday apartments and bring the equipment to a lovely day on the snow !!!
