    Just one ride to the top

    The first view of the skifields here for the majority of people is this one, taken at Tapis Roulant. The excellent cable car from here will take you to the top of Monte Gomito (1892 metres) from where you can access all parts of the skifields.
    About 50% of all those on the fields were snowboarders, the most I have ever come across anywhere.
    Lift tickets are a maximum 28 euros a day for a multi lift pass and discounts apply from there to, say, a children's 7 day pass at 102 euros.

    Do I look cold?  I certainly feel cold.

    Boy, was it ever. My estimate was somewhere around minus 20 celcius with the wind chill factor taken into account. My decision to take my gloves off to set the camera up and not put them on immediately afterwards was regretted!
    This shot looks towards Val di Luca and is off to the right as you alight from the cable car. You also have an option to go along the ridgeline to Pulicchio (1700 metres), just out of sight on the right, and ski off there to another pickup point called Faidello and you'll have nearly 300 vertical metres there though Val di Luca offers over 400.

    Towards Selletta and beyond

    This is taken at the top of Monte Gomito and I basically went off to try every slope from here. Suffice it to say that if you to the left (as you look at the top from below) you reach Selletta (1711 metres and there is some quality intermediate skiing to be found off there but, should you continue further left to Le Regine, another embarkation point, the slope definitely only rates as beginner level and the chair lift coming back up dates back to at least Renaissance times and maybe even Middle Ages and is the slowest I've ever been on though it tracks a pretty path through the trees.
