Ice Activities

Ice climbing, Hockey, short track, curling and skating: sports activities on ice

Ice skating

Ice skating

Some of ice activities, such as curling, are back in fashion thanks to the recent Olympic Games. Ice skating is instead an activity that has always been very popular. In winter, weather conditions sometimes permit natural outdoor skating. In Cervinia, Gressoney and other districts, there are even skating pistes on natural ice, a fascinating alternative to many sports centres in the local tourist districts (in particular: Courmayeur and Aosta).

During the coldest months of the year, when the waterfalls take on a different aspect, as they are transformed to ice, you can practice ice climbing; ice climbing takes place in plenty of the Valdostane valleys, in particular in Valle di Cogne, with over 150 waterfalls.
