SNOW SPORTS IN THE BIELLA AREA
The Biella province is ideal for sport. Its mountains, hills and great expanses of uncontaminated nature are the perfect place to practise sport in the open air and to ensure that the beauty of the landscape can be fully enjoyed in every season.
The mountains of Biella in particular, have certain characteristics which distinguish them from all other parts of the Alps. They are in such an advantageous position that in just one glance, the entire Padana plain can be viewed on the one side and all the Western and Central Alps on the other.
It is a true paradise for lovers of every type of winter sport , thanks to heavy snowfalls and to weather conditions which rapidly act favourably on the snow, making it suitable for all winter sports.
The Bielmonte and Oropa resorts offer slopes for downhill skiing, which are also suitable and safe for snowboarding, as well as trails for cross-country ski enthusiasts and for those wishing to enjoy a walk with snowshoes.
