A dream ski holiday in Trentino

Discover the winter charm of the Val di Fiemme valley

Sunshine, snow and the Dolomites – these are the three main ingredients of a ski holiday at our family hotel in Trentino.

Expect a fun-packed, relaxing holiday for young and old, with a dazzling choice of winter activities ranging from Alpine and cross-country skiing to trekking and snowshoeing. Your kids will love it!

In the cold season, the Val di Fiemme valley has plenty to offer both for passionate skiers and quiet-seekers, with a choice of ski pistes and tranquil, panoramic winter paths. Do not miss the chance to practise cross-country skiing on the Lago di Tesero Cross-country Stadium or in the fairy-tale scenery of the Lavazè plateau, offering an awesome view to the Latemar and Catinaccio-Rosengarten mountains. Alpine skiers are spoilt for choice at the Val di Fiemme/Obereggen ski resort (Ski Center Latemar, Alpe Cermis, Bellamonte-Alpe Lusia, Passo Lavazè, Oclini, Passo Rolle), featuring over 100 km of pistes and more than 50 lift facilities. Modern snow-making facilities guarantee snow from December through to April.

And why not treat your kids to the brand new Alpine Coaster in Predazzo, by the Gardonè mountain shelter – nearly 1 km of fun-packed ride on two-seat bobsleighs on rail.

At Hotel Shandranj we take care of all details to ensure you a care-free holiday on the snow: a ski depot with boot warming and drying facilities is at your disposal!

Winter checklist

Getting ready for a ski holiday in Trentino? Excellent! Here are a few tips for your checklist. Please remember that here in the Dolomites the sun can be quite strong even in winter, so bring along sunglasses and sunblock as well as some sportswear, your children's favourite toys and, if you like, your ski equipment. We also suggest bringing a lightweight rucksack where you can put a water bottle and a change of clothes in case of need. Naturally, hats, gloves and a warm scarf are a must for the whole family. A pair of spare shoes, and you are ready to go!
