Cross-country skiing at Bosco Sant'Antonio
The Bosco di Sant'Antonio Regional Reserve in Pescocostanzo, among the most beautiful places for cross-country skiing in the region. Development: 13 km; minimum altitude: 1280 meters - maximum 1360 meters.
Three rings: one of 5 km inside the Colle della Difesa, the others of a total of 8 km (including tracks approved by the FISI for competitive activities) in the plateau below Mount Rotella are introduced into the best known beech forest of Abruzzo: the Guided Nature Reserve of the Bosco di S. Antonio, which falls within the territory of the Majella National Park.
Prepared by the local cross-country ski school with mechanical beating, the slopes allow the practice of this sport safely, in a truly fantastic natural environment and are served by rental ski and refreshment point. The Bosco di S. Antonio houses one of the most beautiful and ancient beech woods of Abruzzo and Italy. Along with the beech trees, in this 550-hectare forest you will find centuries-old plants of maple, yew, pear, Turkey oak and holly. The landscape is characterized by steep, tree-lined slopes that turn into gentle hills near the plain. Here fans of the fund will add to the pleasure of sliding light on the snow to practice their favorite activity in an amazing setting immersed in a magical atmosphere muffled between branches so laden with snow to bend under its weight.
