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.
The starting point for this loop trail is the summit station of the San Vigilio Cable Car. Following Trail No. 34, hikers will easily reach the little Church of St. Vigilius up a slight grade that runs through a forest. Continuing along Trail No. 9 to the Schwarze Lacke mountain lake, there are wonderful views of the surrounding mountains. The return trip along Trail No. 7, which leads back to the summit station of the San Vigilio Cable Car, takes about an hour.
