Malga Costa invites to a beautiful winter hike through the woods, surrounded by the silent winter atmosphere. We are on the Lavazè plateau, the cross-country ski mecca. Along the way you will surely see several cross-country skiers whizzing on perfectly groomed tracks. The mountain hut is located on a sunny hill that offers an enchanting view of the Latemar and the Catinaccio/Rosengarten Dolomite peaks.
The typical dishes of the hut and the exquisite desserts will give you the recharge for the walk back to Lavazè Pass.
Experience walking along irregular mountain trails is recommended. It may happen that the path is not clear form snow. In the event of fresh snow, microspikes are recommended. Be careful of ice when temperatures are particularly low.
Please note that the practicability of the itineraries in a mountain environment is strictly linked to the contingent conditions and is therefore influenced by natural phenomena, environmental changes and weather conditions. For this reason, the information contained in this page may have changed. Before leaving for a tour, make sure the path you will approach is still accessible by contacting the owner of the mountain hut, the alpine guides or the visitor centres of the nature parks, the info offices of the local tourist board.
The well-signposted route begins at the end of the square of the Sporthotel Lavazè, where one of the entrances to the Cross-Country Center is also located.
Attention, the route crosses the cross-country tracks three times: it is mandatory to give priority to cross-country skiers and it is advisable to cross at a fast pace.
The path goes on a slightly downhill forest road and then into the wood that bears the traces of the passage of the Vaia storm (October 2018), with flat sections up to the Malga. Malga Costa is open to the public.
