Heading into the hills with the only sound that of the group crunching through the snow was a wonderful way to experience this really beautiful area. The combination of walks through the forests and then out onto higher ground worked really well and the routes were very well judged, moderately hard work without being too tough for beginners. I had a brilliant week and would highly recommend the trip. Hints; If you fly by Easyjet, get the bus from Milan airport terminal 2 - it takes ages to get to the train station at terminal 1. Be prepared for a long day getting to and from Sant' Antonio. It's an interesting train/bus trip but long. The hotel is good but basic, eg bring your own hairdryer.
The Stelvio Alps area is utterly lovely, with lots of well marked trails to explore each day. When we arrived in early February it was unseasonably warm and wet, but luck was with is and it snowed overnight and again after that. Thus, we had plenty of snow to march across! For me, the highlight of the trip was the hike to view the Forni glacier ... Hints: 1. Take the bus from the airport to Milan. Less stress than the train. 2. The snowshoes are easy enough to get used to, but people did suffer from blisters. Bring Compeeds, or alternative blister plasters. For toes and heels. 3. Layers are very important. It can be hot work going uphill, so you need to ditch them. But you'll need them later! One morning it was minus 12 when we set off ... 4. Bring something waterproof to sit on for the gobbling of your packed lunch.
