For all activities, you can ask for more info and details at our reception.
Skiing and snowboarding
150 km of downward slopes, allowing you to unleash your energy and ski on the beautiful mountains of Abruzzo. That of Alto Sangro and that of the Altipiani Maggiore d'Abruzzo are the largest ski areas in the central-southern Italy. Skiing began here more than 100 years ago and fun is always guaranteed thanks to the snowmaking system. The slopes vary in difficulty, to allow everyone - beginners and experts, adults and children - to enjoy this magnificent sport. The Alto Sangro also offers two snow parks, where you can do some snowboarding on the slopes of Vallefura.
Lovers of cross-country skiing will find over 60 km of dedicated slopes both in the equipped area of the Bosco di Sant'Antonio and in the Piano dell'Amogna area.
Ice Skating and Ice Hockey
At the "G. Bolino" Ice Rink, in the heart of Roccaraso, just 7 minutes by car from the Cipriani Park Hotel, you can enjoy some ice skating or ice hockey: the Olympic skating rink becomes a place for spending time with friends or with your children, dedicated to sport.
A dream come true for off-piste enthusiasts: the Alto Sangro and Altopiano delle Cinque Miglia ski area offers you the opportunity to do some Heli-skiing. You can get to the higher peaks by helicopter and then enjoy the fast descent.
Snowshoes and Winter Nordic Walking
There are numerous trails allowing you to discover the territory with snowshoes on your feet or do some Winter Nordic Walking. On the snow, as well as exercise and sport, you can also explore nature, with its beautiful plant life and wildlife.
Mountain Bike on the snow
Those who love cycling or simply moving around by bike will really enjoy hearing the crunching sound of the snow beneath the wheels of the mountain bike. You will find specific routes to ride along in the territory.
Trans-Siberian on the snow
Today, the historical railway that once linked Abruzzo and Molise is an original way to admire the hinterland, with its national parks, canyons and little villages. The Trans-Siberian railway of Italy departs from Sulmona, crosses Rivisondoli and Pescocostanzo and descends to Castel di Sangro. It then carries on to San Pietro Avellana and Isernia. The snow makes the journey even more magical.
Excursions on a snowmobile
Just 13 km from the Cipriani Park Hotel, you can set off on adventurous snowmobile excursions to the snowy Aremogna and its woods.
Walks with tastings on the snow
During winter breaks, along with the entertainment staff, we organise excursions and walks in the snow-covered municipalities of Rivisondoli, Roccaraso and Pescocostanzo with tastings of typical local products.
