Mottarone, situated between Lake Maggiore and Lake Orta at 1491 m altitude, is considered one of the most beautiful natural balconies of the Piedmont region and beyond. Although not among the highest peaks of the Alps, its rounded summit dominates over a landscape that is unique to say the least; from the Maritime Alps to Monte Rosa massif, with imposing Swiss peaks, passing through the Po Valley and the region of the Seven Lakes (Orta, Maggiore, Mergozzo, Biandronno, Varese, Monate, Comabbio). The ski resort can be reached either by car or via a cable car that starts from the hamlet of Carciano Stresa, and leads to the summit of the mountain itself.
The district offers 25 kilometers of slopes, especially suitable for beginners. There is a more technical track, known as the' Alpe Courts, which starts from the top of Mottarone and winds for 2.5 km before arriving at a scenic area on the seven lakes. The resort also boasts a good snow-making system, able to cover 5 km of slopes.
Work begins on the cable car that goes from the Staffa hamlet to the middle station of the Alpe Bill. This is the first intervention of the project born to relaunch tourism in the Piedmontese ski resort.

Fabulous landscapes, organization of the highest level, altitude range ranging from the 3000 meters of the Indren glacier to 1191 m. of the inhabited area of Alagna and that allow in all seasons to find the snow in excellent conditions. We add the charm of the real mountain at the foot of the legendary Monterosa 4000, with the town center where the Walser houses create a unique atmosphere of extraordinary beauty. If we combine all this with more than two meters of fresh snow that fell during the last week, NeveItalia could not but choose Alagna as the base location for the Freeride 2019/2020 test.
