Piani d’Erna Cable Car
The Erna Piani is a mountain resort at 1375m in the territory of Lecco, overhung by Monte Resegone and reached by a cable car, recently modernized, running from Malnago. The cable car was built in 1965 and the town began to be a destination for hikers in summer and skiers during the winter. In the nineties, however, with decrease in snowfall keeping the ski resort became difficult and limited to just a few weeks per season. After experiencing decades of wear and tear, he cable car, was completely renovated, in the summer of 2008.
