What is snowshoeing
Snowshoeing is a walk in the snow characterised by the use of snowshoes. These are special snowshoes attached to the foot only at the front of the boot, leaving the heels free. One also walks with the aid of snow poles to alternate with walking. Snowshoeing, in fact, is characterised by a movement very similar to cross-country skiing and is easy to practise as it does not require any particular physical preparation.
HOW THE ACTIVITY TAKES PLACE
The snowshoe hike on the Alpe Cimbra begins at 10 a.m. or 3 p.m. at the meeting point indicated on the map.
After putting on your snowshoes and poles, which will be provided in your technical equipment, a short briefing on the activity and safety rules will follow.
The route, which is about 5/7 km long, includes a ring-shaped hike, not too difficult, which offers wide views of the Folgaria Alp and beyond: you will reach an altitude of 350 m and will be able to admire the summit of Monte Maggio, Pasubio, the Brenta Dolomites and the Lagorai chain.
The activity lasts about 3 hours and ends with the return to the starting point.
