100% fun, in both summer and winter

Family attractions

In winter Alta Badia is one of the most family-friendly ski resorts of the entire Dolomiti Superski. The area of San Cassiano is particularly famous for its easy slopes, including blue run number 9 that gently slides along Armentarola ski lift, just 15 minutes away from Les Pizades Apartments. It’s a perfect place for learning the basics of Alpine skiing accompanied by the experienced ski instructors of the Ski School Dolomites, such as the landlord of Les Pizades farm Otto Crazzolara, specialized in teaching to children. Other fun is waiting on top of Piz Sorega, which hosts a bear cave and is the starting point for amazing Tru Liosa Foram toboggan run.

Summer activities for children in the Dolomites are equally exciting. In addition to themed trails, various events and the rich Summer for Kids program, the little explorers of the Dolomites can meet different domestic and wild animals and have a great time on splendid mountain playgrounds, including the Movimënt Bear Park on top of Piz Sorega. Just a few minutes’ walk away from Les Pizades apartments, there is a big picnic area next to the climbing area of Sass Dlacia where you can organize the most panoramic barbecue in your life.

Winter trekking & snowshoeing

Equally rich is the offer that Alta Badia reserves for non-skiers. The guests of Les Pizades apartments in San Cassiano can enjoy some of the best winter trekking routes in Alta Badia. The easy but extremely picturesque Prè de Costa trail that passes in front of the farm is very popular among families with small children, including those in baby strollers. Charming winter trails climb to Malga Valparola, to the snow-covered meadows of Störes and Pralongià – combining them with a sled descent brings lot of fun for young and old alike.

And those who wish to venture into virgin snow expanses, can opt for snowshoeing, trying, for example, an easy tour to the Valparola Pass or a more challenging itinerary to the Fanes plateau. Walking across the silent pastures, covered with sparkling snow, is one of the best ways to soak up the spotless harmony of the Dolomites. The nearby Cross-Country Ski School offers a rich program of guidedsnowshoe tours that lead to places of historical importance and to stunning natural sites.

Adventures in the Dolomites

Summer hiking & cycling

Trekking and cycling are certainly the most popular of all summer activities in Alta Badia. And for both of them the apartments of Les Pizades farm in San Cassiano are an absolutely great solution. The surroundings feature numerous hiking trails of every difficulty level, from family walks at Prè de Costa and towards Malga Valparolato more challenging hikes towards Pralongià, Setsas, Lagazuoi and Fanes. The most experienced hikers will certainly adore the tours to Lavarela and Conturines, as well as the fixed-rope trails of Alta Via Veronesi and Ferrata Tomaselli.

Neither cyclists will run the risk of getting bored. Those who prefer road bikes can tackle the passes of the Dolomites along the nearby routes of the Maratona dles Dolomites and of the Giro d’Italia. While the best trails for mountain biking lead to the plateau between Piz Sorega and Pralongià (with the possibility to join the Sellaronda MTB Track Tour), to the Valparola Pass, to Sass Dlacia and along the river towards La Villa, Corvara or Badia. The less trained ones can take advantage of electric mountain bikes.
