Buggy-Friendly Winter Hikes at Ortler Ski Arena
Enjoy the Natural Side of a South Tyrol Winter
A winter hike through the snowy forest shows the winter season in South Tyrol at its best. The sunny South Tyrolean winter offers countless opportunities for winter hiking and a stroll with the whole family. The many cleared trails running through the ski areas of Ortler Ski Arena, many of which can be undertaken with a buggy, are especially wonderful for families.
In addition, there is a dense network of lodges with sun-kissed terraces throughout the ski areas of Ortler Ski Arena: this allows you to turn back with the toddler and stroller whenever the need arises.
