Alpe di Pampeago has already represented the finishing stage of five editions of Giro d'Italia. Ideal destination for bikers, it is the only dolomitic pass to be paved and closed to traffic.
Take the chairlifts to reach the peaks of Latemar, that Unesco declared “World Heritage Site”. In Pampeago, another place is worth a visit: it's RespirArt, the highest art park of the world, where they organize outdoor concerts at the Theatre of Latemar and land-art excursions. Other walks lead you to the themed park Latemarium in Obereggen or to Malga Pampeago, famous for its lessons to learn how to milk a cow and to prepare butter. The Alpe boasts a favourable position that lets people ski until late April.
From Pampeago, you can reach the ski-area Ski Center Latemar where you can have a great time down the 45 km of slopes and a snowboard park.
To get at Pampeago from the village of Tesero, take the skibus – or drive your car – for about 15 minutes. You can park near the departure chairlift stations Latemar or Agnello, in a quiet and peaceful hollow surrounded by conifers, two hotels, a few houses, three ski rentals, a sportswear shop, three coffee bars and a ski school.
