ALPINE AND CROSS-COUNTRY SKIING
During the winter, Sauris is the ideal destination for those who love skiing in a peaceful environment. The sun-kissed slopes that are equipped with an artificial programmed snow system, are managed by Promotur: in Sauris di Sopra in the heart of the snow-clad hamlet, it is possible to use either a red slope or a blue slope, served by a ski-lift and a magic carpet conveyor belt lift. The youngest skiers and beginners can take their first steps on the slow thanks to the ski school camp.
In Sauris di Sotto there is a blue slope (fitted with a night-lighting system) and a ski-lift that takes skiers to the top of the slope.
It is possible to hire equipment on site and to take skiing lessons with instructors from the Scuola Italiana Maestri (Italian Ski Instructors’ School).
The “Plotze” circuit, dedicated to the practice of cross-country skiing, is particularly suitable for beginners and it stretches through Sauris di Sopra on the snow-clad plain bearing the same name, behind which Mount Bivera stands out.
OTHER SNOW ACTIVITIES
There are endless possibilities to enjoy yourselves on the snow: off-piste skiing can be practiced throughout most of the winter season. There are several itineraries dedicated to Alpine skiing, such as those that can be covered using snow shoes or for Nordic Walking. Ice skating is possible at the Borgo di Velt Sports Centre.
For the most romantic, a trip on a horse-driven sleigh through a postcard scenario while embracing your loved one, is an absolute must.
