Winter in the Fassa Valley
Skiing and winter sports in Vigo and Pozza di Fassa
Skiing and winter sports are king during the winter months in the Fassa Valley. When the snow covers everything, the views are transformed and everything changes. The meadows become wonderful ski slopes; the cycle path becomes a fantastic cross-country skiing route; and the woodland paths are prepared for snowshoeing walks.
Skiing and snowboarding
The Residence La Betulla has an enviable location: near the Vigo di Fassa ski lifts, but at the same time not far from those in Pozza, making them the ideal winter holiday destination for those who want to ski in a different ski field every day. Every ski area has slopes for all levels able to satisfy all skiers, from beginners to the more experienced. Also, snow playgrounds will delight younger children and introduce them to skiing under the watchful eye of expert instructors, who will help them to learn while having fun, leaving mum and dad some time to ski on their own or to simply relax for a while.
Ice hockey and ice skating
The Alba di Canazei Ice Stadium allows guests on holiday in the Fassa Valley during the winter months to join the audience for ice hockey matches or to attend ice skating shows, in which athletes from the local team participate as characters. During the week, anyone can hire skates and give ice skating a try: why not try this fun sport during the fixed afternoon and evening slots? Wrap up warm - it's cold!
Walking with snowshoes
Enjoy wonderful woodland walks with snowshoes! There are well-marked routes and free maps available at the tourist office. Taking the cable car from Vigo di Fassa, we recommend the Ciampedie-Gardonè return trail: following ups and downs through the woods that are not particularly challenging, after a good hour's walking you will arrive at the refuges in the Gardonè valley. We recommend you take a refreshing break here before setting off on the return route. You won't regret it!
