MILANO MONTAGNA, your urban outdoor loving community

Milano Montagna  aims at promoting the mountains and the culture that comes along with them through action sport, stories, innovation, contests, science, sustainability, design, film and exhibitions.

Since 2014 Milano Montagna during the month of October gathers the community of mountain and outdoor enthusiasts of Milan and beyond to meet those who undertake the most jaw dropping achievements of the year, develop new disciplines, see world premieres and listen to scientists and activists’ endeavors to preserve the natural world.

This year the Municipality of Milan and Milano Montagna gave life to Milano Montagna Week, the new week dedicated to the great outdoors, the mountains and the culture that comes along with it, inserted into the Yes Milano schedule.
The conclusion of the first edition of Milano Montagna Week, which had at its core the Sustainable Outdoor Days, is with a promise. A promise, to prepare a selection of new events and initiatives for 2020 that will take over Milan with mountains and sustainability for the rest of the year..

The Freeride Ski Museum was born out of a desire to push curiosity of the discipline of freeride, with the aim of promoting its spirit and investigating the technology that supports it. It’s a celebration of the innovations and design that have made off-piste skiing more accessible, fun, creative – in short, the unforgettable experience we can enjoy today when snow blankets the mountains.
