FAT BIKE: a new emotion on the snow of Alta Badia

THE FAT BIKE IS COMING, for more fun and adrenaline.

With the fat bike you can discover a new world at high altitude, you can reach wonderful places with amazing panorama that are unreachable for skiers. The lift transports you to the mountain and you can ride down through different trails, accompagnied by an expert bike guide.

Santa Croce in Badia is the ideal area to spend a day with the fat bike, alternative to traditional skiing, enjoying a breathtaking view at the foot of the imposing mountain range of Sas dla Crusc (Sasso Santa Croce). You may start from the village of Badia, go up with the chairlifts Santa Croce and La Crusc and reach the sanctuary La Crusc / Santa Croce (mt. 2045).


Starting from La Crusc you can follow two routes recommended for fat bike: a route leads through the meadows of Armentara, well known for their colorful flowers during the summer months, after a thrilling downhill run you reach the hut Ranch Andrè where a stop is mandatory . The hospitality, the good local cuisine, the beautiful view, the particular locality of the hut in the middle of the snow-covered meadows form the backdrop to the entire tour.
Another round which starts from La Crusc takes you on the path n. 15 under the mountain range of Conturines, Lavarela and Sas dla Crusc, at the gates of the natural parc Fanes - Senes - Braies, finally you reach the locality Rüdeferia in San Cassiano. It is a very scenic route that makes you see  Alta Badia from high position, with a very different perspective than on the ski slopes, simply spectacular.


It should be remembered that the trips with the fat bikes can only take place if the weather conditions and the weather permit. You have to pay attention to the presence of ice sheets and small areas not so easy to drive. For this reason it is only possible to organize trips with fat bike accompanied by an expert bike guide who knows the area and the weather conditions.

For customers who hire the fat bike by ski rental Skiland, the bike transport with the chairlifts Santa Croce and La Crusc is free.
