Ski tour tips around Alpe di Siusi
During the legendary Catinaccio circular tour you cover an altitude differential of 1.800 m and are rewarded with amazing powder snow downhill runs through virtually untouched nature. Highlight for ski tourers during their holidays in the winter in South Tyrol is the climb to Sassopiatto and subsequent downhill run. The almost 3000 m tall mountain is one of the lesser high peaks of Alpe di Siusi. Climbing it is the highlight of every ski tour in South Tyrol. The approx. 3 hour long climb is hugely demanding - the views from the top are the perfect compensation. Just as fantastic is the subsequent downhill run through the snow-covered mountainscape.
Sellaronda ski marathon in South Tyrol
A particularly interesting and demanding challenge is the Sellaronda ski marathon in South Tyrol. While skiers tackling the Sellaronda during the day use the ski lifts, the several hundred athletes taking part in the annual Sellaronda ski marathon race at night. Equipped with headlamps and touring skis they battle without the aid of lifts over 4 mountain passes around the Sella - and all by night. The successful athletes are rightly called the kings of the Dolomites.
