Cross-country skiing in the Dolomites

When winter leaves you glowing inside and out

The sunny trails are prepared, the meadows and forests are covered in a soft blanket of snow, all is quiet. Your breath forms clouds against the blue sky. This is cross-country skiing in the Dolomites.
 
Which to choose - skating or classic style? Cross-country skiing is relatively easy on the joints, builds stamina and muscles in equal measure, and improves your movement, metabolism and winter mood!

The trails are carefully marked in the snow against the unique backdrop of the Dolomites to form a wonderful network of trails (a total of 16 km, divided into three trails) ready for cross-country skiers. It is all quite straightforward and easy, with gentle ascents and multi-track sections for faster skiers.
The longest route is up to 8 km long and starts at either the Waldhaus on the Lago di Carezza or from the Tscheiner Hut on the Nigra Pass road as far as the Gasthof Frommer Alm - where you can of course stop for a bite to eat!
