Also explored by the “Linea Bianca” cameras, Bielmonte overlooks the Po Valley and offers splendid scenery. Here there are 18 kilometers of tracks with programmed snow , served by five chairlifts, two ski lifts and two treadmills: there are the slopes for the more experienced skiers, and those instead – very simple – are perfect for beginners and for the families with children. But there is also space for those who love cross-country skiing : a 20-kilometer journey leads to the discovery of the Sassera Valley , a Piedmontese valley that occupies the province of Biella (and partly the province of Vercelli), develops around the Sassera river and – in the western area – falls within the spectacular Zegna Oasis.
Bielmonte, family skiing near the Biellesi Alps
Facing south, Bielmonte offers a mild climate in every season. Here you come to ski by day or by night, to ice skate, to walk, to have fun in the snow park or toboggan run, to walk with snowshoes, to climb the indoor wall. Because this small ski resort known as ” Parco della Neve ” offers endless opportunities, and Italian pediatricians have included it between three ski resorts in the North-West best suited for a ski holiday with children , and with grandparents: the over-60s have indeed here a special welcome and discounted rates.
But there is not only snow, in Bielmonte . Located at the highest point reached by the Panoramica Zegna, this town in the heart of the Oasi Zegna is home to a wild nature to explore with trekking and excursions , thanks to the dense network of routes that lead to the mountain huts. And then the recreational opportunities, from riding courses to mountain-bike routes, from rock walls to radio-controlled gliders, from the bobsleigh track to the adventure park.
Because in Bielmonte, in summer as in winter, adults and children never get bored. And a family vacation turns into an unforgettable experience.
