Walking amidst the winter white of Val d'Ega

Snow. Shoes. Get walking!

Snow crystals blow over the white blanket under the sun. Your feet tingle, your nose tickles. It’s time to get out and about in the chill winter mountain air, where the world is clear, clean and white. Footsteps in the snowy landscape, on groomed trails or cross-country: enjoy winter walks around Tires al Catinaccio.

Winter walks made even easier– on snowshoes!

Snowshoe excursions in the Dolomites are more than just an alternative to skiing! Whether you are looking for a sporting challenge or simply for relaxation, lightweight snowshoes - ciaspole in Italian - distribute your weight so you do not sink into the snow. Then it’s off to visit a cosy Alpine hut with views of the Latemar and Catinaccio massifs, awe-inspiring in their sheer beauty. A “ciaspolata” is an experience for all the senses - practically no previous knowledge is required. Whether firn or powder snow, any thickness or type of snow is suitable for snowshoeing.

A clear path - or a real challenge? Exploring the Latemar and Catinaccio massifs

There are easy, flat walking routes starting from the Carezza ski area, but also steep and demanding tours for those so inclined. There are 15 kilometres of winter walking trails, ideal for strolling; while up beyond the lifts can be found some 16 km of snowshoe trails for the more adventurous, with altitude differences of up to 1300 metres. Guided tours are also offered several times a week. Why not give it a try? Everything you need can be hired nearby.
