Skiing in the summer? Yes, it's possible in Senales, something I will never forget from my visit there.
Senales is a year-round skiing paradise situated high in the Alps. So high, in fact, that if you have the opportunity as I did, you can even ski the slopes in the summer months. The contrast of palm trees and ski slopes shocks the senses, but you can find them both in the area around Senales thanks to the fact that this commune is situated on a glacier.
In addition to skiing, snowboarding and other winter sports, I found that the area is also ideal for hiking and trying new local dishes. I would highly recommend a visit to the glacial sauna for some rest and relaxation before heading down the slopes for the final time.
With certified instructors, this ski school is ready to get you up and moving on skis. If you have been skiing for years, a lesson can help you master a technique or perfect your form. This school offers a variety of private and group lessons. If you have always wanted to try carving, this group can get you started. In addition, they offer classes for snowboarding and telemarking.Address: Maso Corto 10 - 39020 Senales
Locals in Senales enjoy skiing in the Val Senales ski area approximately 14 kilometers from the Senales city center. The skiing area is located in the South Tyrolean Alps and boasts a maximum altitude of 2,800 meters. The ski area is serviced by eight ski lifts which are large and ensure quick arrival to the ski area.
There are plenty of runs suited for all levels of skiers, however the ski area is generally more suited to beginner and intermediate skiers. There are fifteen pistes which total more than 30 kilometers in length and provide up to 800 meters of vertical descent. Val Senales also guarantees fresh snow as they house snow cannons.
Before heading out on the slopes, you can rent all of the equipment you need at this local ski rental shop. No matter your ability level, they have the best skis for that level. You can rent everything from skis and boots to snowboards. Their staff can help you make a selection and offer advice on the best equipment. If you need accessories like gloves or goggles, they sell those too.Address: Nearby Maso Corte - 39020 Senales
Taking part in a guided snow shoeing tour of glacier cave is a great way to enjoy the natural setting of Senales. The snowy, ice covered cave is a sight to see indeed, and will take up a good part of the day. However, it should be noted that the tour takes a good deal of physical exertion and requires proper winter gear.
Alternatively, an afternoon at The Texel Group Nature Park is another way to enjoy the area’s beautiful scenery. The park offers multiple hiking trails through mountains, forests, valleys, and moors. Hikers will enjoy the Alpine Valley lakes and especially the Parcines Waterfall. The park also boasts a Nature House and Museum.
This snowshoe-hiking trail is a popular one in the region. The trail begins at Monte Santa Caterina and winds its way to Malga. It only takes about an hour and half hike if you keep up a steady pace. You will get the chance to enjoy the outdoors and the wintery scene all around you. It is not a particularly difficult trail, so it's a good option for a novice.Address: Starting point : Katharinaberg 81 - 39021 Monte Santa Caterina
