How to get there:

This depends on where you’re headed. For the Aosta Valley and Piedmont, flights into the Geneva International Airport (GVA) or the international airport in Turin (TRN) get you there most quickly. If you’re headed to the Dolomites, then flying into the Venice airport (VCE). From each of these, the most popular starting points can be reached by bus, train or airport shuttle

More info about Snowshoeing in Italy:

With mountains running all across the north and through the center of Italy, it is little wonder that there are so many incredible snowshoeing opportunities in the country. Away from the aforementioned ones, there are plenty of others to see and experience. Other popular spots include the Monte Rosa massif further to the west. Boasting plenty of minor peaks throughout the massif as well as 4,634 meter high main peak, there is plenty to see and explore here. Heading to Gran Paradiso and romping through the surrounding national park is another excellent spot to explore on some snowshoes. This peak is also fairly easy to climb on snowshoes, as long as you are fit enough, and provides excellent views of Mont Blanc, Monte Rosa and the Matterhorn
