In the past, snow-shoes were used by farmers to avoid sinking into the snow during their workdays. Today, snow-shoes are mainly used for sports because they allow you to reach certain areas that would otherwise be inaccessible. You don't need to climb to high altitudes. Thrilling sensations await you on lower altitudes and even over short trails. Prior experience or technical expertise are not necessary and you can rent your snow-shoes in any rental centre.
Try sled riding to experience unparalleled sensations. This sport has always been a passion for both the young and the young at heart. In Alta Badia, there is an infinite number of ways to have fun:
"Trù Liösa Foram"- a natural snow trail for sled riding
This trail takes you from elevated mountain meadows to wooded area midway, which has become known as Foram Forest. The trail starts at Piz Sorega and can be reached by an oval shaped cable car.
Cherz plateau - Sentiero del cacciatore (The hunter's trail) – Planac
This pathway is immersed in nature between perfectly intact woods and meadows. This area is found just outside the town of Corvara.
Spëscia - Armentara - La Crusc
From La Valle you can take pathway no. 15 to reach Sasso Santa Croce. From here, the sled ride down is very suggestive and takes you through meadows and woods immersed in serenity. If you wish, you may reach Sasso Santa Croce by chairlift.
