Cross Country Ski the Dolomites
The Dolomites has a rich cross country ski heritage. In 1956 Cortina d’Amprezzo hosted the Winter Olympics. In 2007 the Biathlon World Championships were held in and around the Biathlon centre at Anterselva di Sopra. In 2010 a brand new cross country skiing centre open in Dobbiaco/Toblach and now hosts international cross country races every year. In 2015 our very own Richard Edwards tried to keep up with one of the Santer sisters, one of three sisters who would have been the first siblings to all compete in the same Olympics had it not been for an unfortunate last minute injury to Stephanie.
Obviously you don’t have to be an international cross country skiing champion to make the most of the facilities and opportunity. We really enjoy the stunning landscapes, perfectly groomed tracks and after a day of exercise like nothing better than to return to the charming hospitality of your hotelier and tuck in to some wonderfully delicious south Tyrolean cuisine.
This itinerary is just an example of what is possible but if you would prefer to stay in the same place then that is also possible as there are a number of locations that have direct access to the trails and some great hotels such as the Ciasa Salares.
