What an amazing combination! Where else can you ski in the morning and relax on a sundeck by the lake in the afternoon with coffee and cake? While skiers have fun up on the slopes, those for whom winter holds no great charms can steer clear of the cold, or at least the snow, by keeping to the lower altitudes and enjoying the mildness of Ascona or Locarno. There's certainly enough to do! Strolling around the town, plus museums, spas, bars, cinema; after all, Locarno is a famous film venue. Whatever winter type you are and whatever you decide, immerse yourself in the atmosphere of the "slightly different winter" on Lake Maggiore and indulge in the Mediterranean charm – because it's here all year round!
