Piazzatorre has been one of the most important and visited tourist centres in the province of Bergamo for decades. The town can be easily reached thanks to its being close to the city of Milan (90 km ) and big towns as Bergamo (45 Km), as well as Orio al Serio international airport. Piazzatore is situated in Alta Valle Brembana (Upper Brembana Valley), a few kmilometres from the prestigious San Pellegrino spa.
During the winter season the ski lifts are accessed from mount Torcole, a true natural paradise for the snow lovers: downhill skiing, sledge, bob, walks with snowshoes, snowboard, freeride and absolutely safe alpine touring, and all that the imagination suggests to do in fi elds and forests covered with snow.
Piazzatorre Ski Area, being placed in a sunny position at 2000 meters altitude, besides the quality and the quantity of the snow, is always excellent thanks to the favourable exposure, without ice layers and with the possibility of programmed snowfalls, offer a splendid panorama of the valley and offer to the skiers’ disposal modern ski lifts and several ski pistes of various length and diffi culty, among which the “mythical” Forest Slope, one of the most beautiful and demanding ski slopes in the province of Bergamo, with its 700 meters of height difference and 4 km of length, all immersed in a splendid fi r-wood. For the beginners, but not only, our ski school offers qualifi ed ski instructors, while for the moments of rest there are welcoming shelters and bars along the slopes.
