Mountain Research Rises to the Challenge

Mountain Research Rises to the Challenge | Le Marche another Italy | Scoop.it

The Monti Sibillini National Park, collaborating with University of Camerino, is conducting a project experimenting with preserving mountain meadows in five sites. Two of these focus on combatting Brachypodium genuense. Since domestic animals are averse to this grass these sites are initially mown, and local people are given incentives to help maintain sheep and horses in these locations.

The study results, to be published in 2017, will be a significant step toward preserving the beauty and health of mountains in Europe. [...]

From the beach to the mountains in an afternoon – Only in Le Marche!

From the beach to the mountains in an afternoon – Only in Le Marche! | Le Marche another Italy | Scoop.it

Here is a brain teaser: is it possible to stroll on the beach in the afternoon and, an hour or so later, be up in the mountains walking in the snow, tasting delicious regional salami and cheese?
The answer is yes and, more precisely, the answer is Le Marche.

This is so true! We live in the foothills of the Apennines outside Piobbico (near the Umbrian boarder) and within 45 minutes we can have our toes in the Adriatic Sea in Fano!

Introduction to skiiing in the Italian Appenines, Le Marche, Italy

Introduction to skiiing in the Italian Appenines, Le Marche, Italy | Le Marche another Italy | Scoop.it

Having experienced skiiing for the very first time, I would like to share some information about Sassotetto, high in the Sibillini mountains near Sarnano, Le Marche, and part of the Italian Appenines. For novice skiers, this resort is ideal since it is relatively inexpensive and accessible. It is possible to stay at the resort itself - there are several hotels, although we chose to stay near Sarnano and take the daily shuttle bus to the resort. There are two main centres at Sasso Tetto; Sasso Tetto and La Maddalena. We went to the latter and having walked the short distance from the bus to the ski school, enquired about an hour's lesson.
We were surprised that the lesson price was so reasonable; €30 for an hour for an individual but €40 for two people (See the detailed Sibillini Ski School price list). Our instructor was Domenico; although he probably spoke a little English we opted for our lesson in Italian. The hire of ski boots, skis and sticks was a reasonable €10 per person for the day, and once we were kitted out, he took us to the nursery slope for some tuition.
