Although relatively unknown, hiking with tennis racket-like snowshoes is quickly gaining momentum among winter recreationists.
Winter snowshoeing trails follow summer hiking trails in Alta Badia. Snowshoeing is a great way to discover the spectacular backcountry winter scenery, surrounded by the wonders of nature and the white silence of yore.
Whether you’re new to snowshoeing or have already had some experience with the sport, Holimites organizes guided hikes each Thursday on the Armentara plains (snow-covered in Winter, of course!)
Meeting: every Thursday at 8:30 am at the Skitop shop in Badia so that we can rent our snowshoes together and start the hike at 9:00 am at the latest.
Cost: The excursion is free. You will have to pay for the 2 chairlifts that will take you to the top of La Crusc / Santa Croce, to then descend to the Armentara plains (7€), and the rental cost of the snowshoes, if you don’t already own a pair.
Booking: We’ll take along a maximum of 7 people, so sign up ASAP if you want a spot. To make a reservation, call our office at 0471 838022, Monday to Saturday 9am-12pm; 2pm-5:30pm (closed Wednesday afternoon) or stop by our office in person. Last call to sign up is Wednesday at 12pm.
Duration: Our guide will accompany you for roughly 2 ½ hours.
What to bring: We recommend wearing lightweight and breathable clothing in layers and to bring along a light backpack with heavier clothing such as a fleece jacket, a wind/waterproof jacket, and a hat.
Physical readiness: Minimum physical fitness is required, but this activity does not require specific athletic conditioning. Our hikes are meant to be a relaxing, 2-hour walk on the snow.
