Snow and ice are the protagonists of this season. Winter season culminates during the Christmas holidays when thousands of people visit Bolzano and the prices are very high. On the other side, there’s a low season in January, with rigid temperature and less people and that’s why it is the best period for us to speed on ski slopes/trails or to ascent the ice-climbing walls. From February to March there’s a high season again but there are milder temperatures to enjoy sunny days and the stable snow for the ski mountaineering tours.
As logistic base you’ll stay at the apartment Santner di Vols at the Schlern, the B&B by Helmuth and Brigitte in the very heart of the Central Dolomites.
