No skiing for me today!

Great fun on the snow without your skis

WINTER 2019/2020 – You’re tucking in to a hearty breakfast, from the window of your chalet you can see the white mountain peaks pushing up from a sea of snow-covered forest. It’s the perfect day to show your children the magic of winter in the mountains, there’s so much fun to be had on the snow besides skiing. So, wrap up against the chilly breeze and enjoy a little winter adventure with the entire family, smiles and rosy cheeks are guaranteed!

Trentino in winter has so much to offer those seeking an alternative to skiing. Here we recommend just a few!

#1

A stroll through art and nature

Take the day off and treat yourself to a trip to Arte Sella, the famous open-air art exhibition less than half an hour from Borgo Valsugana. Here, art and nature combine to create living works of art that you can see and feel… and even enter! What better way to take your first steps in the world of art!

#2

A walk on the snow

Have you ever tried snowshoeing? It’s the easiest way to make your way through the snow on foot and has been used for centuries by the Huron people of Canada. In Trentino you can give it a go in the Monte Baldo Natural Park accompanied by the instructors of the local ski school. Ready for a new adventure?

#3

Make way!

Of the many activities we can recommend, we can’t overlook sledging, a must for any winter holiday! There are numerous areas across Trentino to have fun with your toboggan but we recommend the sledging slope of Gardonè-Predazzo, amongst the mountains of the Val di Fiemme. Make way!

#4

Spot of frolf anyone?

Have you ever tried Disc Golf? The aim of disc golf, or frolf, is to hit a series of targets with a frisbee over a course not dissimilar to a golf course. Whoever completes the course with the least number of throws wins. This winter why not try it out in the Alpe Cimbra… better start training!
