The famous Bolzano Christmas Market and smaller events in the villages put you in the right mood for the cold season. The frozen lakes invite to extended ice skating tours on sunny days and in February the old traditional Carnival revelry is done to banish winter. Those who love the snow have enough possibilities for snow-shoe hikes on Mt. Mendola or the Salto high plateau, or can experience the near skiing areas on day trips.
