Overview

At an altitude of 1370 m on the Colle del Casotto, the resort of Garessio 2000 stretches along the ridge separating the Casotto and Tanaro valleys, about 12 km from Garessio. This position makes the skiing district of the Maritime Alps closest to the Ligurian Sea, a characteristic which has a positive influence on the atmospheric conditions as it protects the area from sudden climatic changes. The district has about 30 km of runs for downhill skiing and snowboarding, served by four ski-lifts and a two-seater chair-lift, with an hourly capacity of 1200 people. Most of the tracks face north, but from the start of the Mussiglione ski runs, on the peak of Monte Berlino, on clearer days skiers can enjoy a splendid view of the Ligurian coast and Corsica. The snowboarding run is equipped with a token-operated fixed timer system which enables boarders to measure their speed in competitions with friends. Although we can state that only at Garessio 2000 “can you see the sea as you ski”, the resort represents an excellent starting point for downhill skiing on the Maritime Alps.
