Ski & Snow: Snowshoeing

SNOWSHOE EXCURSIONS
 
In Dimaro and Folgarida, if you don’t feel like skiing, you can still get in touch with nature and discover amazing winter landscapes as you walk through a snow-covered forest with snowshoes on your feet that will allow you to glide over the snow, even if there’s more than a meter of snow underneath you.
 
Snowshoes were once used mainly by woodsmen, hunters and lumberjacks to carry out their job during the winter months. Snowshoes were made by first intertwining branches, then the wooden frame was formed using steam, and finally the branches were fastened onto the frame with animal ligaments. 
 
Modern snowshoes are now lightweight and they can be easily hooked onto waterproof hiking boots without having to wear heavy snow boots. You can also take a pair of ski poles with you that will help you to easily walk along the numerous itineraries in the area.
