In the heart of the Blenio Valley

The ski area of Nara is nestled in a wide, sunny valley basin that lies between 400 and 2200 meters above Leontica in the Blenio Valley. Nara is the ideal vacation destination for everyone - whether skiers, snowboarders, children and families, beginners or professionals.

The toboggan run, the only one of its kind in Ticino and a real attraction in the village, winds its way over 5 km and 480 vertical meters - from Pian Nara to Cancorì - between snow-covered slopes and magnificent coniferous forests. If the snow conditions allow, you can extend the descent by a further 5 km to Leontica.
