An internationally-renowned piste for everyone

If you are a beginner and you are trying out this wonderful sport with your family, we recommend the Viola piste in the Valdidentro. The tourist piste is an easy course, comprising a 10 km loop with gentle inclines that add up to a total of 180 m of ascent. The design of the course, with well signed routes and detour options, means that you can create a loop that is tailored to you, based on the distance you want to ski and your capabilities. Generally, it is a quiet area, where you can learn to cross-country ski away from the crowds.

Thanks to its location, the Viola piste always has good snow conditions throughout the winter season. All of the loops start at the Ski Stadium at Baita Noa. The stadium also features a modern biathlon shooting range for use by athletes, as well as a building that houses the offices of the cross-country skiing instructors, a ski hire shop and a large changing rooms with storage facilities for your equipment.
