Bobble hat, winter boots and thick socks: if you want to enjoy the nightlife in Ortler Ski Arena, be sure to dress warmly. If you do so, nothing will stand in the way of the evening's entertainment. The fun takes place not only in the region’s nightclubs and pubs, but also way up in the high alpine mountains. Many Alpine huts along the slopes, such as the huts in Val di Fleres
and Val di Funes
, keep their gates open at night, serving nocturnal snowshoe hikers
and backcountry skiers
as well as moonlight toboggan enthusiasts
. Many slopes and hiking trails down to the valley are floodlit until late at night.
