Anyone who would like to delve into the sport of skiing away from the ski slopes can hike up the many mountains around Brunico-Bruneck equipped with skis, skins, beeper, and the works and enjoy the lovely view of the mountain landscape of the Val Pusteria-Pustertal valley. In so doing, weather forecasts and avalanche reports absolutely have to be taken into consideration!. The favorite mountains for ski touring are the peaks which are not too high above Falzes-Pfalzen, Gais, S. Lorenzo-St. Lorenzen, and Perca-Percha. The necessary equipment can be obtained at local ski rental outlets or in one of the many sporting goods stores in Brunico and vicinity. Guided ski tours can also be booked as desired. This is especially recommended for beginners.
