The excitement of skiing at dawn

Thanks to Trentino Ski Sunrise, you can now salute the rising sun with an exciting descent or a picturesque walk on the immaculate slopes at first light, in a pristine environment where the peaks are lit with the colours of the "enrosadira". All this in addition to a large breakfast in a mountain hut, each time in a different ski area in the territory.

What colour is snow? It depends: when the sky turns red, or when there is ice on the surface, it becomes a large expanse of crystals that reflect a rainbow of different shades. This magic happens in "special" times, when the slopes - a magical and sparkling expanse surrounded by mountain peaks - are almost deserted. A dream? Not in Trentino, where you can ski even in the most unusual moments, like the beginning of a new day.

Trentino Ski Sunrise is a wonderful opportunity for a descent or a walk in the company of skiing instructors, alpine guides, or local tour guides at first light, surrounded by an unrivalled Alpine countryside. To experience the excitement of the sun rising over the Dolomites in the best possible way, the first stage is a hearty breakfast in a mountain hut, with local products: milk and cheese, cold meats and eggs. Not to mention desserts and traditional specialities. And then everyone on the slopes, to be the first to carve the immaculate slopes: mainly with skis, but also with snowshoes or even on foot.

From 6 January to 7 April, skiing and mountain enthusiasts can participate in one of the numerous dates that will provide the opportunity to get to know and explore various skiing areas in Trentino. Not only on the weekend, like in previous years, but even during the week, since the territorial APTs will organise many outings.

The baptismal event for the 2017 edition of Trentino Ski Sunrise will be held in San Martino di Castrozza: Friday 6 January the exceptional location will be the Tognola Ski Area, with the mountain hut of the same name, from which you can see the spectacular Pale di San Martino Group, while the following day the event will be held in the Folgaria Ski Area, with breakfast at Rifugio Stella d'Italia shelter.
