Airolo-Pesciüm The ski area Immersed in the snow The Airolo-Pesciüm ski area is located at the bottom of the St. Gotthard, one of the most important alpine passes, situated in the heart of the Swiss Alps. Thanks to the Airolo highway exit, which is only 200 meters from the over 500 free parking lots of the cable cars, reaching us from Zurich and Milan only takes an hour and a half. Airolo can be easily reached by train as well: a free shuttle bus ensures the connection with the cable cars departure station. In Pesciüm there are: the main restaurant (self- service) with more than 500 seats, the restaurant with table service, a terrace particularly popular from February, and a picnic room. Two more refreshment points on the slopes are reachable by skis, while “La Chièuna”, the new après ski bar is situated at the start of the cable cars. The slopes of the ski area, located in a breathtaking landscape, extend for over 30 kilometers at an altitude between 1175m and 2250m

Jason Ford from United Kingdom writes:

Lovely family friendly resort in Swiss-Italian village and very reasonably priced. Would have liked to have stayed for longer but ran out of time.
