Most appealing are the cross-country skiing trails in the Vallelunga valley, a side valley of Val Venosta. Nature in its purest state, this is what the solitary Vallelunga with its steep slopes has to offer. The glacier of the Palla Bianca mountain ridge is ideal terrain for those who love high alpine mountaineering and even ice climbing. At the upper end of the Vallelunga, there is the mountain peak of Palla Bianca, located at an altitude of 3,739 m close to the borders of Austria and Italy. What is particularly striking in Vallelunga is a unique rock formation, the so-called “Krampusloch”, which closely resembles a human being. Covered by alga and lichens, its color scheme is likewise impressive.
Although already national and international competitions took place on this diverse, high-altitude trail at a height of 1,912 m, it is still not overrun by cross-country skiers which makes it the perfect hide-away for professionals and amateurs alike.
