Cross-country Skiing in the Dolomites

Hotel Emma's Winter Tale

The snow gleams in the light of the setting sun. It had been a wonderful day. You smile as you remember the morning when you were the first to leave your footprints in the fallen snow. You followed the winter trails amongst the white trees, witnessing the miracle of the first glints of sunshine on fresh snow and the magical awakening of the winter woodland.

You went out with snowshoes to discover the Dolomites, which you fell in love with in a heartbeat. Later, you returned happy to the Hotel where you ended the day with a welcome glass of wine. Your eyes take in the last of the sunshine.

And you are already thinking about the next day... maybe you'll do some cross country skiing, to Dobbiaco and the Landro Valley or to Prato Piazza?

A winter holiday in Alta Pusteria -
Hotel Emma's recommendations:

Winter excursion to the legendary Braies Lake:

in winter, the freezing temperatures transform the calm waters of Braies Lake into a thick sheet of ice on which children and adults alike can skate in a unique setting. If in the summer you crossed the lake in a pedalo, you can now do so on foot or on skis...

The marathon track in Val Pusteria:

the marathon track in Val Pusteria extends 4 km from Villabassa to Dobbiaco. So what are you waiting for: put on your cross-country skis and set off!


High-altitude cross-country skiing at Prato Piazza:

more than a few Olympic participants trained here to win a medal... and perhaps they won precisely for that reason! Who knows... in any case, this ski slope is not just for professionals - it will more than meet the expectations of even beginners and pleasure-seekers. This is not just because of the promise of the slope, but also of the breathtaking view all around...
