A multiple chance of itineraries to discover the Stura valley in winter dress

The walk with snowshoes is certainly the most easy-to-learn winter sports activity: on tracks and in optimal conditions, it is comparable to the summer march.

In the Stura valley there are a myriad of snowshoe tours of all kinds and difficulties: you start from snowshoeing for beginners and novices, like the one that develops along the track of San Bernolfo in the valley of the same name. It is beaten by a snowcat, runs alongside the cross-country ski slopes and is dedicated exclusively to snowshoeing.

Then there are excursions on technical and alpine terrain, where it is necessary to have an excellent knowledge of the dangers inherent the snowy terrain, as well as safety, rescue, orientation and snowpack assessment techniques.
