CARONA

Descrizione

This is where ski-mountaineering races for the legendary Parravicini trophy are held. Every year hundreds of athletes climb the steep slopes with sealskin attached to the underside of their skis, applauded by the

many enthusiasts of this traditional sport.

There are plenty of other opportunities too, because Carona, the headquarters of the event, is also a important ski resort in the Bergamo area and belongs to the same skiing area as Foppolo, to which it is

connected by the lifts in the Carisole valley. Those who instead do not want to go off the beaten track must be “content” with 8 runs: 1 easy, 5 medium and 2 diffi cult for a total of 22 kilometres. Snow cannons,

a skating rink near a pretty artifi cial lake and loads of sun complete the attractions of this popular ski resort. Distance from Bergamo: 53 kilometres.
