The Airolo-Pesciüm ski resort is located at the foot of the Gotthard massif, one of the most important Alpine passes, located in the heart of the Alps.
At the gateway to the South of Switzerland, 200m from the Airolo highway exit, you will find the area of Airolo-Pesciüm, equipped with a large free parking lot or just a few minutes walk from the Airolo train station.
Pesciüm is a large panoramic terrace overlooking the village of Airolo, easily accessible in a few minutes thanks to the modern cableway that brings many fans to Pesciüm or on the slopes of the Sasso della Boggia, which stands at 2,065 meters above sea level. The alpine landscape offers a splendid panoramic view of the Gotthard, the Bedretto Valley and the Leventina Valley. In summer, Pesciüm is the starting point for numerous hiking trails and an increasingly popular destination for cyclists and bikers in search of fun and adrenaline. The offer is constantly being expanded and the trails dedicated to lovers of two-wheeled descents that propose bumps, jumps and parabolics are a novelty in Ticino!
In 60 minutes from Lugano, professional and amateur sportsmen and women, trekking enthusiasts or simply mountain lovers will find everything they are looking for, in a single station.
