Cross Country Skiing Center "Marmotta Rosa" - Riva Valdobbia
Via Circonvallazione, Riva Valdobbia
The Cross-Country Skiing Center of Alagna includes the tracks between the town of Riva Valdobbia and Alagna Valsesia along the Sesia river, facing the amazing south face of Monte Rosa.
The paths reserve the best panoramic points to admire the Massif and observe the local fauna.
Among the most suggestive we suggest the Frazione Balma, the best view on Monte Rosa! Località Caseruolo, the ideal spot for deer observation in the early morning. Location Alzarella, the coldest point of the track, where you can admire ice crystals that reach even the length of 6 cm!
The slopes have different levels of difficulty:
A 10 km medium-difficulty ring (red track)
An easy 5 km ring (green track)
Some high-difficulty tracks (stretches of black track)
A school area
There you will find the possibility to book lessons with qualified instructors, ski rental, showers, services and changing rooms.
Every Wednesday from 5.00 to 8.00 p.m. the center opens to allow those who wish to ski under the stars, equipped with a front. The evening entrance with dinner at Lo Chalet has a cost of € 20.00 if inclusive of equipment rental or € 15.00 without.
The track is bordered for some stretches by a path reserved for pedestrians and snowshoes to allow everyone to enjoy the walk in one of the most suggestive places in the upper valley.
Lo Chalet bar-restaurant is located right next to the track, and offers an excellent cuisine but also a large outdoor area to enjoy the sunniest hours
