All the joys of cross country

No question.
Cross country skiing is good for you. Practised outdoors in wonderful settings it’s an ideal activity health-wise. The discipline requires a constant effort over time and brings significant benefits. Practised either at high intensity or a more measured pace brings out the maximum potential and efficiency of the cardiovascular system and enhances respiratory capacity.
And the cross country loop at Motta is the perfect spot for both athletes and beginners.

The Alpe Motta track sets off conveniently at the arrival station of the Sky Express funicular. The loop covers a distance of five km and heads off into the very same woodland so much-loved by poet Giosuè Carducci during his summer sojourns here. The itinerary boasts an undemanding 2 km ...

Constant wind, a kite, a pair of skis or a board and bags of fresh snow.

The Canalone
It is possible to present a ski-run as an artistic work, without resorting tom dull prose?

If, however, you went ...

The Flying Circus in back
Acquarela is a seriously complex Kaleidoscopic observation platform for observing the diversity of the human condition. But at the same time it’s a sort of ideal, albeit make-believe, world.
