Venosta Valley has to offer many cross-country skiing trails and scenic routes for both traditional cross-country skiing and skating for Nordic skiing fans. Easy and pleasant trails lead through quiet and idyllic valleys such as Val Martello or around the Resia Lake and San Valentino Lake, making this an authentic experience of nature. There are high-Alpine cross-country skiing trails in the Ortler region and the Stelvio National Park, Vallelunga/Langtaufers, and in Slingia/Schlinig, as well as in the nearby Val Müstair (Switzerland).

The Slingia Nordic Ski Center and the Val Martello Biathlon Center
The Slingia Nordic Ski Center near the Watles ski area is a meeting point for the international cross-country skiing scene. The Val Martello Biathlon Center (altitude 1700m) has approximately 12km of well-prepared slopes and boasts the first electronic shooting facility of its kind in Italy, and is as a result regarded as the international biathlon spot in South Tyrol.
