There are also huts and refuges where you can refresh yourself with a mountain lunch or a short break.
All the activities the park offers:
– Cross-country skiing-hiking: a natural way of moving on the snow that allows you to explore and enjoy the wonderful snow-covered woods of Corno alle Scale from a different perspective.
