From one end of the village, this 23 km track winds down into the Marebbe valley through the quiet forests and snow-covered mountain pastures of the Fanes-Senes-Braies Nature Park, where the fresh air seems to glisten and the soothing tranquillity of the winter dominates the Dolomites. On many different routes (rings), cross-country skiing enthusiasts will find ideal skiing conditions as well as breath-taking surroundings and inviting mountain inns offering mouth-watering delicacies. Group lessons and individual lessons are available at the San Vigilio ski schools.
At the very heart of San Vigilio di Marebbe, close to the Aqua Bad Cortina Oasis Hotel, a beautiful cross-country slope sets off along the romantic Mareo valley all the way to the Pederü mountain inn. One glimpse of the picture-book winter landscapes and you won‘t be able to stop yourself from grabbing your skis and setting off into the White fields and forests, to relax far from the daily hustle and bustle. The slope is suitable for both classic cross-country skiing and skating. For all winter sports enthusiasts who wish to learn or improve their cross-country skiing, there are two ski schools in San Vigilio which offer both group lessons and individual lessons (p. 20). And of course you don‘t have to ski the whole 23 km of the slope: The track is arranged in a number of routes (rings) which allow you to return to San Vigilio at any time. Alternatively, you can catch a Mareobus and Citybus service to Pederü or to the football grounds (Skibus stop) and start skiing at different points of the slope. Please contact the Tourist Board for information on snow conditions and the state of the slope: +39 0474 501 037. Use of the cross-country skiing slope is subject to a fee but free of charge for guests staying at a San Vigilio Tourist Office member facility!
