Why Brembo Ski ? Its just over an hours drive from BGY. That is it’s the nearest skiing to any Italian airport. It’s already popular with English school trips. Many small apartments ideal for kids groups. A 1970’s resort a bit like Marilleva, was popular but as skiing became more of a lifestyle event rather than intensive skiing they lost their market share to other smarter resorts. There were political problems between the 3 local resorts and they never got it together. Now the local mayors of each town are on the same side and they are re-investing into the infrastructure and have brought serious international investors in to the area.
The Italian group De Benedetti has recently bought out the whole old ski infrastructure and is now committed with local partners to spend over 100million euros in the redevelopment of the area, creating new hotels, new parking, new ski lifts and new property developments.
Skiing : these slopes are great for beginners & intermediate skiers.

Finally after the pressure in the Eurozone and outside observors piling on the pressure it finally looks like Berlusconi is to quit. After an afternoon meeting with Napolitano the president he had planned to have another confidence vote in parliament (his 55th) but after today when he didn’t get a majority on the austerity plans (though they won) it looks like another confidence vote would fail so prudently he is planning to step down but without a fight.
