Using snowshoes is definitely the best way to continue trekking into the winter, without too much effort and technical preparation.
Snowshoes have very ancient origins that date back thousands of years: in fact, they were used by hunters so that they could move around when the snow wouldn't allow the use of normal shoes. Snowshoe trails have been on the rise in ski areas; this is not without reason as they are a wonderful opportunity to go trekking in the snow with the whole family. This sport is suitable for everyone; both adults and children get a great thrill out of it.
We have 8 km of snowshoe trails for you at Airolo-Pesciüm, which are divided into 3 routes:
Snowshoes are to be used with telescopic walking sticks, which help keep your balance and maintain rhythm. Make absolutely sure you have your A.R.V.A in your backpack, especially if you leave the wooded areas. For more demanding itineraries, we recommend taking a pair of crampons.
