Panorama invernale

The ridges of the Apennines that from Tortona, passing through Volpedo, San Sebastiano Curone and Fabbrica Curone, rise up to Caldirola and Novi Ligure, passing through Serravalle Scrivia, Cantalupo Ligure until they reach Capanne di Cosola and Carrega and they are one of the most fascinating areas of the province of Alessandria.

The ridge that touches the relieves of the Mount Giarolo (m. 1473), the Mount Ebro (m. 1700) and the Mount Chiappo (m. 1700) and divides the Curone valley from the Borbera valley, allows to range to 180 degrees on the territory of four Regions: Piedmont, Lombardy, Liguria and Emilia, offering an extraordinary view on the Apennines.

An unexpected and surprising spectacle can be enjoyed even from the summit of the Mount Antola (m. 1597), located at the south-east of Piedmont, from where, on clear days, the view ranges from the Ligurian Sea to a large part of the Alps.

Another area of great landscape value is that of the high Val Lemme and Alto ovadese, with the dorsal that starts from the Bocchetta Pass, passing through the Mount Leco and reaches the Mount Tobbio, offering panoramic views beyond compare.

The first months of the year are characterized by optimum conditions for hiking on skis or snowshoes: the temperatures are often several degrees below freezing and the snow on average reaches a layer of 30-40 cm from with sides swept by the wind, so you walk or ski on compact crust on exposed stretches or, if you tackle the trails in the woods, on powdery snow.

It's possible to reach the ridge by several points and then move slightly up and down the watershed, covering dozens of miles in safety: it is possible to reach a shelter or roads and is present the coverage of the major telephone operator .
