p above Faido in the Leventina Valley a couple of chairlifts give good access to a pleasant area with a reasonable range of facilities, including a ski school, mountain restaurants, kids play area, toboggan run, snow park, winter hiking trails and a good mixture of ski runs. The train runs to Faido from where a courtesy bus winds up to Cari. There is also ample parking.
