Snowkite

For all those who are keen on extreme sports, a new activity is taking hold: SNOWKITING. This is a free ride sport involving a kite which enables you to enjoy our mountains to the full while being pulled along by wind power alone!

There is no need for traditional energy sources such as petroleum and its derivatives to take you back up the slopes, no ski pass to pay for and no queuing. Instead, you have the freedom to go up and down the snow-covered slopes with the aid of your kite.

Next to the slope, the Fedare Refuge offers a cosy retreat. On the terrace overlooking Mt. Civetta, you can have lunch or admire the panorama.

Not least, you can enjoy the traditional Dolomite cuisine prepared by Mrs Anna Troi and her son Ivan, accompanied by South Tyrolean, Italian and Chilean wines from the well-stocked wine cellar of the house.
