Skiing in Cioss Prato - Valle Bedretto

Description

The Val Bedretto (Bedrettotal) in the northern Ticino extends from Airolo at the foot of the Gotthard Pass up to the Nufenen Pass, where it crosses into Valais. In the long valley between the Gotthard and the Cristallina massifs there is always lots of snow. In winter, the Bedrettotal is a paradise for touring skiers using skins or snow shoes.

In Cioss Prato there is a small lift, while in Bedretto there is a centre for cross-country skiing (classic and skating). However, being far from the crowds of tourists, the Bedrettotal is ideal for long winter walks and snow-shoe excursions through the quiet snowy landscape.From the starting point at the Cioss Prato ski lift, following the official signs and wearing snow shoes, a circular route can be taken while remaining in the area of departure or by descending in the direction of Ronco; a longer itinerary is also available on the right side of the valley.
