Covered in deep snow, the wintery Alpe di Siusi is a real paradise for cross-country skiers. All cross-country skiers, whether skaters or classic skiers, beginners or pros, feel at home here in the heart of the Dolomites. A seemingly endless landscape, slightly hilly and with small areas of forest, all surrounded by the impressive Dolomites, promises an unforgettable cross-country skiing experience.
There is a choice of 80 kilometres of cross-country skiing tracks of various difficulty levels. The lengths of the individual tours vary from 2 kilometres for beginners to the 15 kilometres long Jochloipe track - the longest high-altitude cross-country ski track on the Alpe di Siusi. If that is not enough for you, then you can take the 7.5 km long connecting track to Val Gardena, which is another one of the El Dorados for cross-country skiing fans. All tracks are dual or quadruple and can also be used for skating.
Pros appreciate the ideal altitude. The Alpe di Siusi is very popular with top athletes. Cross-country skiing national teams from Norway, Italy, Sweden and the USA appreciate the good conditions on the Alpe di Siusi and come to train here on a regular basis.
A fee is charged for using the cross-country ski tracks on the Alpe di Siusi (day ticket: € 7.00). The tickets are available at the Alpe di Siusi information office and from the cross-country ski track inspector.
