Skiing on Lake Como in Bellagio

it was possible to ski till a few years ago. On our higer mountain, called San Primo, we had a few ski basin. Here many childrens of the 80ies learned this sport. Now this ski basin are closed, mainly because in the last years the snow was always less. This mainly due for the climate changes. Thats why they started climbing the mountain with the ski and then playing free ride downhill.
