The snowshoe hike on the Cima Lasta/Astjoch Peak (2,194 m) followed by a toboggan run is one of the most rewarding things to do in the area. The magnificent summit view of the surrounding mountains is simply impressive.

Before you start for a snowshoe hike you should always consult the avalanche report and weather report!
