What you'll do

You take the 08:20 am train from Milan to Varenna (approx. 1-hour), a charming little village on the Lake Como, from where we start the excursion. We enjoy a short walk of the picturesque village. Afterwards, continue on driving to Sondrio, in Valtellina, a valley in the italian Alps that begins right at the top of Lake Como. From there we drive another 20 minutes to reach the start of the cable car that in 10 minutes bring us in the center of the ski area. Here we enjoy the snow, the view of the slopes with skiers, and we rent boots and skis (on your own, cost around € 15) to walk on the snow. We do not do anything diffiucult but, on the contrary, this experience is aimed more to just beginners or first-timers. At some point there is time for lunch at a restaurant (on your own, average cost € 20 to 30 per person). Around 03:00 pm we catch the gondola for the return to our car for the driving back to the lake and for your final train ride to Milan Central station (estimated arrival time 06:30/07:00 pm)
Other things to note

Meet your host, Luca

Host on Airbnb since 2016
  • Identity verified
I was born and raised in Valtellina, near Lake Como, where the ski resort that we will hang out at is located. Being born in the mountains I have been skiing since I was a kid and I am familiar with snow places! I would be glad to bring people to experience the snow, without doing difficult things however just walking on the snow, maybe try to wear the skis, especially the travellers that have never seen the snow or just a little!!
