Winter experiences in the Dolomites

Enjoy hiking, tobogganing and cross-country skiing

In the colder season, there’s nothing cosier than sitting in a warm lounge with a hot cup of tea or coffee and watching the snow from the window. Yet, there are other ways you could spend your time with us… why not check out our wide range of winter activities? If you’re holidaying in San Vigilio di Marebbe, you just have to! Go snowshoeing, take a sleigh ride or glide along the cross-country ski track – just have a go at everything. A holiday in the Dolomites is much more than just skiing and snowboarding!

Cross-Country Skiing

If you enjoy cross-country skiing, then you’re in the right place! San Vigilio and the Christophorous Mountain Residence have everything you need. 24km of snow-covered meadows and forests, with the impressive Dolomites constantly in view. The nearest cross-country ski track is only 200m from our door – so, what are you waiting for? Three ski schools in the village round this excellent opportunity off nicely.


If you like hiking in the summer, you’ll love it in winter too! With special snowshoes, discovering the area on foot is all the more wonderful. Our tip is to get to know a local mountain guide who knows the San Vigilio area like the back of their hand… someone like this can take you on lesser-known routes and show you the hidden treasures.

Winter hiking

Romantic, snow-covered forests, timid wildlife and impressive snowy landscapes… in San Vigilio, we have a beautiful winter wonderland right on our doorstep. Walk along the pristinely prepared paths, get to know one of the local mountain guides and experience the unique mountain world as the snow sparkles in the sunshine.


Need to regain your balance after a thrilling day zipping down the pistes? Then the Cianross toboggan run is exactly where you need to be! A 500m run that winds through the forest and runs alongside the pistes. Tobogganing at night is quite something… the run remains open until 10pm twice a week.
