SNOW RACKETS

The use of ‘Ciaspole’ or snow rackets as they are known goes back a long way, and were originally used by the people living in the Arctic regions, in order to move around without problems on the deep snow which lasted for most of the year.  These snow rackets are light and simply made. They are attached to the foot by a clasp quite similar to those used for mountain climbing and ski climbing. The size of the plastic ellipse varies according to the weight of the person wearing them. This allows you to ‘float’ across the snow, they are fitted with steel crampons in case of ice.

 

 

One of the best loved manifestations dedicated to the snow rackets is held in the district of Pontedilegno-Tonale. Its name is ‘Caspolada al chiaro di luna’ meaning it takes place by moonlight. There can be as many as 4000 participants and is the pride and joy of the village of Vezza d’Oglio. It consists of a non-competitive night walk and takes place between the end of January and the beginning of February, when there is a full moon. Seeing the mass of people walking along a moonlit trail Is a truly magnificent and fascinating sight and should not be missed.
