Tarvisio in the Winter

Almost half of the entire region is covered by mountains, which form a natural boundary with Austria and Slovenia. Yet it is an environment on a human scale, pristine, enjoying a climate of lengthy seasons and good snowfall even at lower elevations. Thus its ski runs and establishments offer a vast range of possibilities for every level of skier, yet areas are seldom crowded even at peak periods. And long-distance skiers will find loop trails that present varying levels of challenge.

During the winter, Tarvisio is a veritable paradise for those who love skiing, comfortable amenities, and untouched nature. Skiers can enjoy, in fact, an area that boasts over one hundred kilometres of ski runs, which offers absolutely fabulous possibilities for long-distance skiing, a sport that ranks #1 in this area.

Nor will downhill skiers be disappointed: they will enjoy up-to-date lifts ands runs with good snow cover, since the ski establishments all have powerful snowmaking equipment (which adapt their work to the exposure to the sun, avoiding creation of ice patches) and wide runs with breathtaking views into the immensity.

The world of skiing possibilities is far from being the only reasons why the area has a strong attraction for tourists. The Tarvisio area boasts night clubs, dancing establishments, pubs, restaurants, meeting places of all levels and styles that will fulfil anyone’s dreams for snow sports and relaxing pleasures.

Tarvisio’s range of sport offerings is vast indeed, with the opportunity of approaching a variety of mountains, whether for simply hiking or for rock climbing, in addition to ice-skating and sledding. For those who want total relaxation, enjoy the nearby thermal baths at Warmbad.
