Barzio - Valsassina

By Tdominici
Barzio lies in privileged position, dipped in the green and in front of the Grigne
Barzio - Valsassina
Currently the town is considered the touristic center of the Valsassina and offers different opportunities to the sporting people. From there starts a cableway, that leads to the Piani di Bobbio and the Valtorta.
Entering the heart of Valsassina from Barzio, you come to the Piani di Bobbio which, along with the ski slopes of Valtorta, form part of a single skiing district. The area is also renowned for its many trails, which include the "vie ferrate" (equipped climbing routes) on the Campelli mountain range
Piani Di Bobbio (1340-2150 meters) - 
The ski area is linked to the one of Valtorta, and that makes Piani Di Bobbio the largest ski area of the valley. 
The Valsassina Valley offers many opportunities for marvelous hikes immersed in nature, which are suitable for everyone. One of the most scenic paths is the one from Introbio which, after approximately 2.5 hours through a thick forest of chestnut trees, brings you to the rifugio (mountain hostel) of Bocca di Biandino. Now the characteristic mountain village of Premana makes an appearance at the edge of the Valsassina and Valtelline valleys: it is positioned on the Varrone Valley on the slopes of the Legnone and Pizzo Alto mountains in the Orobie Prealps.
