More than 30 icefalls, 3 downhill ski resorts (Bellino, Pontechianale and Sampeyre), 5 cross-country ski resorts (hamlet Becetto in Sampeyre, Bellino, Casteldelfino, Chianale and Valmala), 2 downhill tracks for mountain bikes (Rossana and Sampeyre), 1 fitted route for rock-climbing (Bellino), 1 Chrono Test Point (Pontechianale), 1 golf-course (Venasca). Besides, a myriad of itineraries for snowshoes, cycling, hiking, horse-riding, rock-climbing, sports and no-kill fishing, ice skating in winter and sports centres in summer. The Agnello Pass, with its 2,748 metres legendary ascent of the Giro d’Italia, is an unforgettable challenge for bike lovers. But also if you aren’t exactly a champion you will enjoy cycling along countless paths and itineraries in a stunning mountain landscape. If you are looking for a challenge that doesn’t accept absent-mindedness the 9 holes golf-course in hamlet Bricco of Venasca is the ideal place. The stream Varaita is dear to a lot of fishers and it also features a part reserved to no-kill fishing. Horse riding is really good fun, as well as hiking or climbing. In summer lots of hikers reach larch and fir forests and green meadows which in winter, covered with a blanket of snow, turn into downhill or cross-country ski runs or into lily-white and peaceful paradises for snowshoe lovers. And for ice fans the legendary falls: a real must do round here!
