In winter, the famous mountains in the Pustertal / Pusteria valley are number one. The valley is located in South Tyrol. On the northern slope you go down to Reischach. On the east side towards the town of Olang, where there are wide carving slopes, fantastic conditions for skiers and snowboarders and the west side is a fascinating landscape towards San Vigilio.
One day of skiing on the Plan de Corones really brings everything we need to enjoy a perfect day on the slopes. You can conquer three ski areas, three mountains Plan de Corones, Klausberg and Speikboden with or without skis. The mountains are located between the towns of Bruneck / Brunico 838 m.n.m., St. Vigil 1 201 m.n.m. and Olang 1,080 m.n.m .., with its beautiful slopes, in sight of everything, because the slopes are almost never lined with trees. 116 km of pistes and 32 transport facilities make this mountain resort one of the destinations that have been called the vanguard of South Tyrol. As for the categories of slopes, we will find here everything that beginners, so-called casual skiing fans, require. There is, for example: a full-length track, which is quite wide and which makes it easy to get downhill to the valley, so even beginners do not have to worry about night skiing. On the other hand, the "Black Five" slope will take us to five black descents, requiring a certain skill even for experienced skiers. you can head towards Alta Badia and join the world-famous Sella Ronda circuit.
Even snowboarders and freestylers will not be disappointed. Kronplatz recently changed its snow park, with Belvedere it has both Easy Line and Medium Line. In short, adrenaline, fun and strong emotions are really taken care of here.
You can overcome all this on the Dolomiti Superski ski passes, because every sport lover will certainly not miss the already mentioned Alta Badia valley, where there is a shuttle service directly from Pikolein. The ride takes 20 minutes, you call the skis again and the Sella Ronda circuit is yours.
