Bielmonte is located at an altitude of 1500 metres, in the Oasi Zegna district, which stretches along the panoramic route between Trivero and Rosazza, in Valle Cervo. The winter resort becomes a real snow park, overlooking the Po Valley Plain, guaranteeing perfect exposure to the sun and a splendid panoramic view. Thanks to its characteristics it was chosen as an official training venue for the Torino 2006 Olympics. The south-facing ski runs are spacious and easy, making them ideal for children and beginners, while those on the north face also include black ski runs for expert skiers. Sports lovers can take advantage of 20 km of slopes for downhill skiing and snowboarding and 20 km of tracks for cross-country skiers, but Bielmonte also offers the opportunity to go walking, even under the stars, with snowshoes in the company of nature guides, and to go ski touring in the High Valsessera. On the slope of the Colle della Marchetta, it is possible to experience the thrill of kiteski in fresh snow, being dragged along by a kite, on skis or a snowboard. The ski runs are lit up two night’s a week, when they are open to ski clubs and groups and every evening is characterised by the possibility to discover the hospitality of the Oasi di Zegna, in the area’s numerous hotels, restaurants, holiday farms, pubs and clubs.
