Skiing Information: Our apartment is ideally situated (Northern end of Lake Como, close to Switzerland) for those who wish to ski. Skiing is available at resorts including Madesimo, Chiesa in Valmalenco, Aprica, San Moritz (Switzerland) and Livigno. The closest is Madesimo (50 kms) . Madesimo is a small resort in the Spluga Valley on the Swiss border. It is a very good family style resort with a full range of skiing from beginners through intermediates to the famous black 'off piste' Canaloni Run. It enjoys a reputation for being reasonably priced. Situated at a height 1500m, with skiing up to 2900m, it has a good reliable snow record. The resort can also be accessed from Campodolcino lower down the mountain, where there is a very good ski train that takes you up to the slopes.
Alternatively San Moritz in Switzerland is about 1 hour and a half away, and this famous resort is well worth a visit.
Walking/Hiking: The walking/hiking around Lake Como is fantastic and Domaso provide an excellent base for access to the mountains and parks on both sides of the Lake as well as the wonderful area immediately adjacent to Domaso and Gravedonna where there are fabulous walks from the back of the apartment up into the surrounding mountains. To be recommended nearby is the famous hike up to Rifugio Menaggio (1400m) where lunch and a spectacular view of the lake looking down on Bellagio is to be had. There are plenty of rifugios in the Natural Parks around the lake. Maps are available in the apartment though for more detailed advice of trails you should contact the Domaso tourist office.
