Snowshoeing in Cortina d'Ampezzo

Experience the magic of winter in the Dolomites with wonderful snowshoe hikes through unspoilt landscapes!

Snowshoes are specialized gear for walking over snow. Their large footprint spreads the persons’s weight out, thereby allowing them to walk largely on top of rather than through snow. Traditional snowshoes had a wood frame, whereas modern ones are made of lightweight metal, plastic, and other synthetic materials.

Snowshoes are typically used for hiking in snowy environments, along with poles that help in pushing. They have adjustable bindings in order to attach them to winter shoes. In the lower part they are equipped with cramponsso as to have a better grip on the steep or ice terrain.

Compared to other very technical disciplines, such as ski mountaineering, snowshoes are quite easy to use, allowing even beginners to make wonderful excursions. Snowshoeing is the winter version of hiking: snowshoeing is a simple but wonderful activity to explore the snowy mountains, allowing everyone to discover unspoilt environments.

It’s a fun and easy to learn activity, perfect for those who don’t ski but want to explore the snowy Dolomites. It is possible to choose routes of different lengths and difficulties: from simple walks for beginners and families, to long routes with steep sections for advanced hikers.

Lastly, with snowshoes it is possible to take itineraries outside crowded areas to enjoy the silence and tranquility of winter, admiring unspoilt landscapes.

Snowshoeing Safety

An unforgettable experience amidst breathtaking views

To live an unforgettable experience along the most spectacular itineraries of the Dolomites, it is strongly recommended to be accompanied by an expert mountain guide. Indeed, unlike the summer season, paths are covered by snow and it is therefore not as easy to find your way during winter hikes. In addition, local mountain guides can take you to the most enchanting, scenic and least-visited places – and to the best mountain huts for a delicious lunch!

For snowshoeing it is mandatory to equip yourself with safety equipment and avalanche research gear (Artva, shovel and probe).
