Not just skiing. Cimone has become the capital of adventure sports in the snow. Besides the areas set up for snowboarding, visitors can also try out kite skiing where you get pulled along at 50-70 km per hour by a kite or paragliding. Or you can go for a walk anytime in the woods with snowshoes or on horseback. Cimone is also the kid capital thanks to its two children's parks. Info
