Various activities in Winter in Val di Fassa, Trentino

The Valley of Fassa as well as the neighbouring Valley of Fiemme offer a wide range of activities in sports and culture. The following is just a small excerpt.

 

Cross-Country Skiing - Marcialonga

On Sunday, the day after our arrival, there will be a very famous and really tough cross-country race with international attendence. It is called "Marcialonga di Fassa e Fiemme". Participants have to pass 70km of slope in just classical style. The slope starts in Moena, Val di Fassa and the end is in Cavalese, Val di Fiemme. If you want to visit this event, you could go e.g. to Cavalese by car. Entry is supposed to be free.
After the race, this very long slope is open to the public again. Entering the slope is easy for us, you could start at the cross-country ski center in Canazei ...

Cavalese, the capital city of 'Magnifica communità di Fiemme' is worth a visit anyway, it has some nice old buildings (palazzi) and a really nice old church in a park with old trees. There is also a skiregion which is included in our skipass (Alpe Cermis).


In the nearer surrounding there are also some highslopes. One of my personal favourites is the slope of Passo di Lavazé at 1808m. You need to buy a ticket for the slope and you should not expect to be alone there, but the road is fun to go there (for experienced drivers) and the view is just breathtaking! You could see the Schlern as well as the Ortler mountain mass, Rosengarten and Latemar, that means you see some of the most famous parts of the Dolomites while doing your workout on cross-country-skis, with permanently changing views while going through the course.
