hiking in late May

I am staying in Castelrotto in late May 2012 for 5 days. Taking walks and hiking is my primary objective. I will be taking public transportation.

Will the ski lifts be closed?

Will the high elevation trails still be covered with snow?

Where can I hope to find hiking destinations at this time of year?

Hi,

Here's the lift schedules for the area, including nearby Val Gardena. According to this, the earliest lift/cable car starts on May18, 2012. It's located and starts in Ortisei (Val Gardena) and goes up to the Seiser Alm. The rest of the lifts seem to start at the very end of May and early to mid June.

Hi Dianne,

Hopefully someone who can answer your question specifically will respond.

Here's a link to the lifts and cable cars for Val Gardena:

www.valgardena.it/en/lifts/page65.html

It seems the Rasciesa (May 25) and the Mont Seuc/Seiser Alm cable car (May 18) will be open during your stay:

We've only taken the Mont Seuc cable car trip, which goes up to the fabulous Seiser Alm/Alpe di Siusi. We actually took the trip and walked in the Seiser Alm 2 days in a row.
