Last weekend we skied in the beautiful Caspoggio, a resort overlooking the landscape of Valmalenco and Bernina.
It is a village rich in history, full of suggestive alleys typical of the seventeenth century; the village still retains a lot of charm, thanks to the development and spread of small, often simple rustic buildings.
Caspoggio offers the opportunity to enjoy a landscape consistsing of large meadows and pine forests, which in winter become ski slopes. The ski resort of Caspoggio can be reached from the most known Chiesa Valmalenco, a tourist center both in summer and winter. Given the shape of the tracks and especially thanks to the excellent professionalism achieved by the industry, Caspoggio is regularly home to international ski championships.
Caspoggio has seven ski lifts, two chair lifts, and has a diverse choice in 20 km of downhill ski runs, and 35 km of ski trails.
The descents are accessible to different levels of skills. Even the tracks still retain the old charm, thanks to the slow chairlifts carrying skiers from the 1100 meters of the town up to the 2000 meters of Dosso dei Galli. The slopes are few but the right-most watching the mountain is very long and exciting, allowing you to ski between breathtaking walls and even through the houses of ancient villages. Breathtaking!
For those who wish to dedicate to other winter sports Caspoggio meets their needs with indoor swimming pools, skating rinks, tennis and volleyball courts.
Caspoggio, as well as other mountain resorts that are in the area, is nestled in a pristine natural environment, a landscape characterized by snow, pine trees and snowy peaks. Caspoggio is not a popular destination, for this reason there are few skiers on the slopes, making it even more exciting descent. Surely we will return to ski in top condition and in peace!
