Ciaspolata nei boschi della Val di Fassa

Excursions with Snow Rackets

Friday 12th January 2018

This winter season in Val di Fassa it has snowed on many occasions creating ideal conditions for tranquil excursions with snow rackets, also known in Italy as "ciaspole". These special tools, worn over your boots, let you walk on top of fresh snow without sinking too much and on ice without slipping.

Fresh snow, sun and adventure awaits you!


For many centuries snow rackets were the only way to move about during winter, they where a simple but necessary device, but in the modern era they have become obsolete.

During the last few years these tools were rediscovered as a sport, also thanks to new materials that have made them lighter and more resistant. There are many sporty people that use them for their winter excursions on the mountains and in the woods to experience the stunning alpine landscapes.

In Val di Non at the begining of January there is the  “Ciaspolada” which is a running race that attracts thousands of athletes from all over the world, for the past 45 years this has been the main event dedicated to this sport!
