The cross-country skiing night trail in Ardez is a shortened version of the Ardez: Il Lai trail. It starts at the eastern end of the village of Ardez on the road towards Ftan. Through a mostly flat landscape you make a nice loop even during the dark hours.

The light switch for the night trail is located at the Transformer at the entrance to the trail. After switching on, the light burns until 11.00 p.m. and then switches off automatically.
