Snow shoes rental in Cortina

Walking on the snow is possible; with the right gear, of course.

The best snowshoes rental in Cortina is Snow Service.

Snowshoes, locally known as “ciaspe” or “ciaspole”, increase the surface area of the foot sole, so as to prevent  sinking in the snow and to allow walking  even on fresh snow.

This tool, used in ancient times and known in many different cultures, allowed mountain people to get around areas of  frequent snowfalls to go hunting.

They are equipped with adjustable pivot bindings and a heel lift  to ease manoeuvrability uphill.
Underfoot crampon clefts, integrated with the binding, provide traction on frozen terrain.

Snow shoeing means getting away from the crazy, bustling ski runs for a slow leisurely  walk on the snow-blanketed slopes  with the footprints of wildlife.

Snowshoes are available at Snow Service 3 – Corso Italia 206 .
We offer a light weight, top quality product from Tubbs and K2 brands. Some models are manufactured in plastic, others in steel.
