Cross-country skiing at Braies in Alta Pusteria

Down in the valley or on the sunny plateau: the Alta Pusteria knows how to please cross-country skiers ...

Skiing over scintillating meadows, venturing into the woods of trees with crowns of white. Passing by the typical mountain huts, whose roofs of sun-baked shingles creak under the heavy load of snow. Gliding on cross-country skis over quiet trails, you and your family can explore the natural landscape of the Dolomites in Alta Pusteria. Silently, in peace and quiet.
