The region The guide was updated:Put your skiing boots on and race down the snowy white mountains. The Bergamask mountains offer many ski runs for the perfect skiing holiday and is within easy reach of the Orobie mountains, in some cases only a few dozen kilometres away. A visit to the Brembana, Seriana and Scalve ski resorts lets you choose between runs that together extend for more than two hundred kilometres.
The Val Seriana winds its way along the Serio river, surrounded by not only spacious snow-covered fields and enchanting woods, but also mountains of unrivalled beauty, which ends in the rugged Val di Scalve. Here you will find about ten winter resorts, both large and small, that make up the Orobie skiing area. The resorts are included in both the Seriana valley and Scalve valley, with many kilometres of runs. Here you can practice everything from alpine skiing to cross country and off-piste.
From Milan- Orio al Serio airport you can easily visit the very popular ski area Monte Pora, where the rounded mountain with its slopes and lack of vegetation lets the sun bathe the runs in sun. The Presolana pass offers classic winter resorts and is perfect for beginners and children, while also being close to the Scalve valley in the shadow of the north face of the Presolana mountain. Here you can enjoy the high altitude runs such as Pista Italia, and the beautiful mountain refuge while Schilpario has a wonderful cross-country piste.
With snow-white oases dotted over the untamed slopes, Val Brembana offers an enchanting environment with its closed valley and folds of wild mountainsides. Here the rough slopes have been tamed for skiing, but without compromising their natural beauty. Here a mix of ski resorts caters to all tastes. Why not try ski-mountaineering in Carona, the 47 kilometres of runs in Foppolo, the half-pipe in San Simone, or visit Valtorta-Piani di Bobbio skiing area. Valtorta is the only skiing area in the Orobie mountains to have developed on the slopes of two different valleys, Brembana and Valsassina, and has become one of the most popular winter resorts of the Orobie mountains.
