Carona

Description

Until a few years ago, this resort was more popular with ski mountaineering experts than with downhill enthusiasts because of the legendary «Trofeo Parravicini», a ski mountaineering event that takes place every year in the area around the Calvi Mountain Refuge.

Today, Carona is firmly established as an alpine ski area, after lifts were built on the slopes of the Carisole Valley, which lies above the town. The valley is a haven of sun and snow; both are abundant and of the highest quality, making the Carisole Valley a fantastic place to ski, with splendid views over Carona and its beautiful lake.

HOW TO GET THERE:
From Bergamo, take the Valle Brembana trunk road until Lenna, then the provincial road
towards Foppolo. After crossing Branzi, take the turnoff to Carona (52 km). The resort is 102 km from Milan. The resort can be reached from both Bergamo and Milan with a scheduled bus service.
