Snowshoes rental in Cortina
Walking on the snow is possible; with the right gear.
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 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 wild animals.
Snowshoes are available at Snow Service 3, our shop at 206, Corso Italia.
We offer a light weight, top quality product of Tubbs and K2 brands. Some models are manufactured in plastic, others in steel.
In wintertime, this means a “slow” wandering through the woods to reach the mountain inns
We will guide you to select the gear that best suits your characteristics and the snow conditions.
In addition, we will be able to suggest the best route for you. You may get a taste of the many possible hikes, by visiting our “Routes” section.
Snowshoes are provided with adjustable ski poles to help you keep your balance, and snow gaiters to keep your boots dry.
No worries if you do not have snow boots, we can rent you some! If you plan a night trip we will provide you with headlamps.
For your safety, to have more fun and learn more, we recommend to book a ski instructor or an alpine guide.
