Winter magic &
fun on the slopes
The message comes from the nearby peaks: the first snow has fallen! The mountains all down the valley are wearing little white caps. The snow will soon cover the roofs of Naz-Sciaves and the fields and meadows all around, and our sunny plateau will be magically transformed. Those intrepid types who venture out on a snowshoe hike to Malga Rossalm, the Odle Refuge, Malga Fanes or the Alpe di Villandro pasture, will be rewarded with a scene from a fairy-tale.
Not only winter hikers are looking forward to the white glory, but also passionate skiers will find a true paradise in the ski areas near Natz. What could be nicer than gliding over the fresh snow from up the mountain down the valley in brilliant sunshine?
