The Alta Pusteria valley offers a wide range of interesting wintertime events. They kick off with the Christmas market and Ski Cross World Cup Races in San Candido, followed by innumerable New Year’s celebrations and events. Every year at the end of January, San Candido is the location for the Snow Sculpture Festival, while at the same time, Dobbiaco/Toblach is hosting a ballooning competition. Both events are incredibly exciting. Next, the cross-country skiers get their limelight: above all during the Tour de Ski, then during the Alta Pusteria valley Ski Marathon followed by the Cortina Dobbiaco Run.
