Ski tours in Val Martello

Ski tours, show shoeing, sledging in Val Martello

Tracks in the snow

Still waters run deep, as they say. What at first sight may not seem particularly spectacular, contains many a surprise. The same is true for Val Martello – always worth a second glance. You will look in vain for ski lifts, mass tourism and stress, but instead the 25-kilometre-long side valley will delight you with peaceful, unspoilt nature landscapes and the Stelvio National Park, one of the largest nature reserves in Europe. And that is why it’s the perfect starting point for ski tours and snowshoe hikes in the valley, high up in the mountains and in the heart of the mesmerizing glacier world of Mount Ortles. Another bonus point: many of the winter activities start right on your doorstep!

Ski tours in Val Martello



Gasthaus zum See | 15,1 km | 4,5 h | 1.340 m | challenging

If you are looking for amazing descents, a tour to the Nonnenspitze/Cima di Rabbi is just the destination for you. The wide ski slopes on the Nonnenspitze leave plenty of room for your own tracks. Another plus: powder snow guaranteed for a long period!

Punta di Lasa / Orgelspitze (spring tour)

Berggasthof Stallwies | 8 km | 4,5 h | 1.310 m | Mittel

Not every 3,000-metre peak requires climbing and glacier ascents - the Orgelspitze for example doesn’t need either. The tour still is steep and demanding. However, the 360° panoramic view that awaits you will be worth the effort! Afterwards treat yourself to a little culinary reward at the Gasthaus Stallwieshof ...

Take a deep breath: My favourite place

Senior host Hermann

Recharge your batteries, switch off and enjoy the silence – where else but here in Val Martello? The best place to do so for me is the Schmelzer Forest, which is located directly behind the pilgrimage chapel St. Maria in der Schmelz.
