Winter in a UNESCO World Natural Heritage Site
The Dolomites at play with the forces of winter
The magical spinning wheel constantly turns on the Latemar and Catinaccio massifs. Rock cathedrals, towers and gullies point at the wide blue sky. And when in winter the summits gleam even whiter than usual, the numerous pistes, sun-drenched trails and countless hiking trails are the place to experience the meaning of the depths of winter.
Action between snow and sky
The Carezza ski area offers enthusiastic tobogganers, downhill and cross-country skiers a total of 4 toboggan runs, 40 kilometres of pistes and some 16 kilometres of cross-country trails. Enjoy a snowshoe excursion or set out in your hiking boots along wellprepared routes. Ski touring allows you to experience the wilder side of winter, or you can make snow angels in the deep snow and admire the ice sculptures. There are highlights for the kids in no fewer than 3 children’s areas! The list is endless – but the winter season is not. So get out into the valleys, up into the mountains, or high up onto the slopes!
Magic, fun and adventures in the Dolomites
Are you a fan of competitive events? Then come and enjoy winter sports highlights such as the Snow-Night Shows, the Snowboard World Cup or the Skiing Championships. If such a high-powered programme makes you hungry, there are lots of mountain huts where you can indulge. Christmas markets, such as the Lantern Market at Lago di Carezza, are the place to warm chilled fingers with a hot drink or sample South Tyrolean specialities. There are little shops offering local arts & crafts to strollers; or visit the churches, chapels, museums and castles that tell the story of the Val d'Ega. For sky watchers, the village of Gummer boasts an Observatory and a Planetarium - or simply lean your head out of the window in the evening and the stars are suddenly magically close!
