Winter: Alpyland In The Snow


Here's some beautiful proof that winter has indeed arrived, at least in the mountains above Stresa. I share with you here some photos taken at Alpyland on a crisp and clear day, from the starting platform of the toboggan run. Alpyland will be a four-season attraction, and you may recall from our earlier posts about it, it is safe for children of almost any age. Its speed range is from very slow to moderately fast, and small children can be strapped in with an adult behind them. Basically it works by releasing a brake. That is, you release the brake to the speed you want. Removing your hands will automatically brake the tobaggan.

Not bad these views, no? Here's a refresher on some of the important information to remember about Mt. Mottarone and Alpyland in the winter. Alpyland sits at the very summit of Mt. Mottarone. Remember that to reach it from Stresa you'll take the cableway up from the Carciano ferry stop, and then at the top of the cableway you will walk a few meters and take the chairlift to the summit and Alpyland. You can also arrive by auto, on a toll road that winds up the mountain. Parking is on the other side of the summit. From that point one must walk up the hill to the summit antenna and over the top to Alpyland. On the parking side you will find the few restaurants, such a Casa delle Neve, and the starting points for the ski runs of Mottarone. It is up here that skis and equipment can be rented.
