Reggio Emilia Apennines, Ventasso Laghi 1350 - 1553 m
Ventasso Laghi lies in an enviable position in the heart of a forest of great natural interest for its variety of wisely safeguarded flora and fauna: the imposing profile of Mount Ventasso which dominates Lake Calamone, one of the most beautiful lakes in the Reggio Emilia Apennines, and the thick beech woods. Accommodation is available in small family run hotels and private apartments; there are also excellent restaurants. The northern side of Mount Ventasso is easily accessible from Reggio Emilia and Parma and is connected to Aulla and La Spezia through the Lagastrello Pass. It is very close to the cross-country ski resort of Pratizzano.
This resort is a popular tourist destination all year round thanks to the beautiful trails and walks in an uncontaminated and wild environment.
In the winter season it becomes a small but well equipped skiing district. The Ventasso Laghi skiing district extends on the mountain side of Mount Ventasso and features four lift systems that reach the many alpine skiing runs; cross-country skiing trails are also available. The ski runs are wide with gentle slopes, and some slightly more challenging parts; this resort is a real paradise for beginners or for skiers that want an easy and relaxing skiing holiday.
Skiing in Ventasso Laghi means a day out full of sport, fun and relaxation far from the busy renowned ski resorts; different types of skiing are available here, from alpine skiing to cross-country skiing, to snowboard, carving, etc...
