Krampus on the piste


©Mirta del Favero

As every year, the Siorpaes family of the Averau Refuge inaugurates the winter season with...the devils!

According to the ancient Ladin and Tyrolean traditions, at the beginning of December, on St Nicholas Day, the "Krampus" (devils) will parade through the centre of the villages, and also around the Averau Refuge.

This will be the occasion to experience at a close range this ancient and obscure tradition, that has been part of the local folklore for more than 500 years. The frightening wooden masks are veritable sculptures, often the work of local artists.

The event is organized in collaboration with the groups ‘Hydentaler Krampus’ and ‘Anpezo Teufel of Cortina d'Ampezzo’ who have joined together since 2022 and become the "Anpezo Teufel".

Time: from around 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Date: Sunday, 17th December 2023

Time: from around 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Venue: Averau Refuge - Ski area 5 Torri Averau

Host of the event: Fam. Siorpaes
