Cross Country Skiing
Are you X-country ski enthusiasts? Immense stretches of snow, rings ranging out 55 km from the beautiful Stelvio National park to the Adamello Brenta Nature Reserve. Cross-country skiing is a sport deeply rooted into Val di Sole customs. Passo Tonale, Vermiglio, Cogolo, Ossana, Mezzana, Commezzadura, Campo Carlo Magno at Madonna di Campiglio and the nearby Val di Rabbi valley with the piste that crosses through the spectacular Stelvio National Park and runs for 5 km alongside the Rabbies Stream, varying its level of technical difficulty as it goes from one wonderful view to another. Many useful and convenient services are offered, such as ski maintenance and rental, changing rooms, food outlets and specialised instructors.
Enjoy the silence of the peaks and of the snow-bound valleys. The mountains crowning Val di Sole are a vast and authentic gymnasium for ski-mountaineering pundits, thanks to the useful and necessary guidance of the Val di Sole Alpine Guides who are the only experts in safety and prudence and who truly know the land. ’Tailored’ ski-mountaineering expeditions organised down to the smallest details, in full compliance with the snow and weather forecasts can be organised, without forgetting the important technical information regarding equipment and suggested itineraries.
‘Ciaspolata’ is the local term describing the use of snowshoes. A jump back to the past, to experience this ancient mountain practice. In bygone times, snowshoes were the only way available to our ancestors to move around in the high snow. Today they have become precious and modern devices for moving silently over the blanket of pristine snow, while listening to the pleasant sounds of the forest and enjoying the lovely winter landscapes. Well-marked trails to be travelled alone or in groups on excursions organised to appreciate what it is like to toil in the mountains in winter.
