Costa Chiggia with snowshoes

Costa Chiggia with snowshoes

Classic itinerary in the beautiful valley of Marmora, perfect for those who approach for the first time snowshoes with safe slopes. An excellent panoramic point on the middle Maira Valley, from the top the view extends to the Monviso and the surrounding peaks. It is worth a detour halfway up to the chapel of San Teodoro, immersed in the calm of the woods, a quiet place to take a break.

Go along the Maira Valley until Ponte Marmora, here turn left and then left again towards Marmora and continue until Parrocchia. You can leave your car in the small open space adjacent to the parish church of San Massimo. Take the summer path between the church and the road to Colle Intersile.
