at Val Casies-Monguelfo-Tesido
Those who love ski touring will feel like they’ve reached seventh heaven in the Val Casies Valley. And they will actually get a lot closer to it, once ski tourers conquer the Monte Alto-Hoher Mann (2,593 m/8,507 ft.) or the Monte Regola-Regelspitze (2,775 m/9,104 ft.) From the summits that are cuddled with snow, the gaze wanders into the distance and, in so doing, brushes past countless other jagged peaks of mountains. Keeping silent, breathing deeply, resting at the cross on the summit is always a joy, and often a wordless prayer. It is tranquil up at the high elevations. But then things will really get going. The descents travel over all kinds of slopes: sometimes over soft powder, sometimes over fast firn hillsides, with every foot of previous elevation gain now whirring by down into the valley.
Through undisturbed whiteness, filled with freedom and the closeness of nature right through the most beautiful winter. The Valle di Casies is one of the tour areas in South Tyrol-Südtirol with the greatest variety. A full dozen ski tour classics along with numerous other tours are just waiting. The first part of most of the tours leads over comfortable logging roads up to the tree line. And after that, the landscape usually opens up, offering moderately inclined, ideal terrain for tours where the risk of avalanches is correspondingly low. In spite of that, safety precautions have to be taken and the avalanche reports must be read. Some of the Alpine meadow inns in the Valle di Casies are also open in the winter, offering warmth in the form of a ceramic oven, strength in the form of Tyrolean Knödel dumplings, and fun in the form of a shot of schnapps.
