A landscape made for a skiing or cross-country skiing holiday in the Val Badia, in San Vigilio. There are certainly many beautiful landscapes around the world, but our local mountains, here at San Vigilio, have a very special charm …

Cross-country skiing, a dream come true: Your holiday on the slopes in South Tyrol

The snow glitters like a carpet of diamonds, surrounded by the great rocky giants, snow-covered meadows and forests stretch far into the distance; you can forget your daily routine and just enjoy the magic of the moment as you glide along on your skis. This cross-country track leads from San Vigilio to Pederü Mountain Hut, a distance of 24 km; it suits both the classic and skating style, and can either be covered all at once or divided into six stages. Treat yourself to a break along the way in the warm atmosphere of a mountain hut restaurant.

Let’s go out tobogganing: Sledding in the Dolomites!

Starting point: Cianross ski lift upper station, where you can rent a toboggan. From there, you can whizz down a run next to the ski slope, travelling through the woods for about 680 m on a great sledge run. The track is also floodlit twice a week, from 8:00 to 10:00 p.m., so you can enjoy a wonderful ride under the stars.

That one. That epic one. The “Erta” ski run at the Plan de Corones

With a maximum 61 % gradient, the Erta is classed as one of the famous “Black Five” ski runs. A very tricky run, and so an excellent choice for competitions. If you want to test yourself against some of the biggest names in skiing, have a go on this slope. The women’s giant slalom competition for the FIS World Cup takes place here every year. Do you have nerves of steel? Are you up to this formidable challenge?

Hike among the mountain huts in the Fanes-Senes-Braies Nature Park

There are so many hiking trails in and around San Vigilio, all of them wonderfully evocative. You can combine some of these hikes with a rest stop at a mountain hut, such as Rifugio Fanes, Rifugio Lavarella or Rifugio Sennes which all make good starting points for other ski or snowshoe hikes. Many hikes and walks also leave straight from our B&B: we will be more than happy to share our experiences and give you some helpful advice.
