Snowshoe trail Pianezza-Gorda

The trail starts in Pianezza (Autolinee bus stop) and follows a pleasant side road that is groomed with snowmobiles in winter by the owners of local farmsteads. The route passes through the area of Larescia, Anzano and Tecc Büsc offering continuous views of the Valley of the Sun. The feeling of peace and tranquility along the entire route is wonderful which is why there are many who seek a secluded place in these very mountains to get away from the daily grind!
 

The junction point of the Camperio-Rambött-Gorda winter trail, Tecc Büsc, is the ideal spot for a short restorative break to view from above the various hamlets located south of the municipality of Blenio as well as the surrounding mountainous peaks.

Set off again into the dense fir forest following the steep trail to Piancassinèla. The last kilometer climbs gently following the road again, and finally reaches the Gorda Hut. The Hut is supervised even in winter, offering lodging, food and refreshments.

To reach Pianezza, take advantage of the free Olivone-Campra winter transportation service (four trips daily). For the descent, rent sleds from the Gorda Hut, or use the Gorda Express snowmobile transportation service.

The route information are to be taken as outward and return trip on the same route.
