Itineraries are laid on which are specially designed for winter sports and the discovery of the enchanting valleys of the Cuneo province, some of which are still virgin territory and as yet untouched by mass tourism. Independently or, if desired, with the aid of expert Alpine guides or qualified instructors, it is possible to go snow-shoe walking through pristine natural surroundings. Excursions will be planned on the basis of snow cover and stability in the Maira, Pesio, Stura and Varaita valleys. The degree of difficulty of the itineraries will be chosen according to the participant’s skill. Cross-country ski enthusiasts can follow various trails, some of which are internationally renowned, such as those of Entracque, Chiusa Pesio, Vinadio/Aisone which will be chosen and recommended by CUBE’s staff depending on snow conditions during the period required. It is also possible to explore the enchanting villages of the Langhe area from the ground, or admire them from high above in a hot-air balloon. Each day is a perfect match between sport, culture and fine dining, ending with a visit to some of the most important architectural attractions of the area such as the Certosa di Pesio, the Santuario di Vicoforte or the Forte di Vinadio where guests can sample some of the famous cheeses and dine in the renowned “Michelin starred” restaurants of the area. Alternatively, dinner can be laid on in the mountain refuges or in the best trattorias, in full enjoyment of the particular wine and food traditions of the region.
