Cross country ski trails abound all the way from Dobbiaco to Cortina d'Ampezzo. We picked the trail that started alongside the lake and wound around a half frozen creek. The trees all had a sprinkling of snow and the snow on the ground was covered in a crystallized blanket.
Hungry from our workout skiing, we stopped for lunch at Lago Landro, which was also completely frozen over with a cross country ski trail running straight across it. Being on the Austria border, the menu offered a mix of Italian and German fare. We sampled vegetable goulash, stuffed baked potatoes, and wurstel.
Ice Stadium is also open to the public for ice skating.
