We get the occasional dusting of snow in Positano, but only on the tops of the mountains, it hardly ever snows down in town. So what does one do for a bit of winter sport in Positano?
You might be surprised to know that you can go skiing from Positano and back in a day!
Lago Laceno is a small ski resort only about an hour and a half drive inland from Positano. You almost don't believe it is going to be there until you arrive and see the snow for yourself!
Carlo was...how do I put this...rubbish..
He tried to move, wobbled and fell, got his skis in a tangle, fell the other way, got up and promptly fell again. I'm not even sure how he got to the bottom of the baby slope as at that point it stated snowing so thickly I couldn't see him anymore.
So now we know, the way to do it is to check the weather beforehand, go on a sunny day, not when snow is forecast. We know to take goggles or glasses. We know to take a FULL change of clothes for afterwards...But best of all we know that we can go skiing for the day whenever we want from Positano!
