Skiing in Kronplatz

Set in the Italian South Tyrol, the Kronplatz region is compiled of 14 different villages and offers an unspoilt but accessible 116km of piste however it's greatest asset is the abundance of other winter activities. A fantastic base for non skiers.

You can also self drive - definitely cheaper - we recommend a stopover in Stuttgart - crossing Friday lunchtime, stop in Stuttgart and set off Saturday after breakfast and be in resort for 3pm - call us on 0203 137 7678 if you would like more info on this route

Skiing in Kronplatz

Set in the Pustertal Valley, the Kronplatz Region is not only a great skiing area made up of 14 villages and towns, but also a haven for many other winter activities.

Skiing & boarding in Kronplatz

In between the Dolomites and the Alps the Kronplatz skiing region offers 116km of piste, all with snowmaking capability; so you can be assured there will always be plenty of the white stuff! There is a wide variety of pistes, lots of undulating blues and reds but also five very good black slopes - for those keen for a challenge. The area is serviced by a great lift network boasting to be 'one of the most modern in European ski resorts'. With 31 lifts, many of which are gondolas, radiating from the peak of the Kronplatz (2275m) the area is well linked with a few small nursery slopes nearer the village centres.

There are 4 access points to the ski area - San Vigilio, Percha, Riscone and Olang. There is equipment rental in each area and also ski schools. 

The whole region has a good transport network, with buses linking many of the smaller villages and others being linked by a fantastic train service which stops just outside the Riad cable car in Percha. This means that once you're in resort you don't need a car and can just enjoy the spectacular views. From this railway station in Percha you can also take the train to the Sextner Dolomiten where there is a further 90km of skiing  (35 minues away by train).

Furthermore it is possible to access the Sella Ronda circuit for anyone who really wants to cover lots of ground.

Staying in Kronplatz

There are a range of options from self-catered chalet to apartments and hotels - some of the prices get quite expensive during the February holidays and at New year but do have a look at the options and email us if we can quote for your group

For non-skiers/doing more in resort

The Kronplatz area offers a lot for the non-skier and those who just love winter activities. This region enjoys over 160km of the 1000km of cross country piste in the Dolomiti Nordicski area; with a great range of distances and difficulties, so be sure to check out the different circuits.

Ice skating, Ice hockey and Curling are popular sports in the region. All of the villages and towns of the region have somewhere to skate; be it a natural skating area or indoor rink, all have skates available to hire. If you fancy having a go at Curling you can try your hand at any of the outdoor rinks or perhaps you fancy taking in an ice hockey game at the ice arena in Brunico.

However the best way to take in the sights and natural splendour of this beautiful region is to get out on foot. There are countless snowshoeing routes, giving you access to some spectacular vistas you wouldn't otherwise see.

For those who love Sledging and toboganning, the area has over 40 tracks. Some are part of the lift system (so you will need a liftpass) but many involve a short hike with an adrenalin filled descent. There are a number of tracks with mountain inns and restaurants on route, so you can try out some local cuisine at the same time. However if you want to spend your days on the piste, there are a number of runs floodlit at night, so you can enjoy being on the piste during the day and at night.

On top of this there are countless other activities from paragliding to ski touring, bowling and spa treatments.

Getting here

You can fly into Verona and have the shorter transfer to resort; or get the train to resort which is great....but cannot be booked until 90 days out......

Milan is also possible - email us for a quote on the transfer - can do the bus if the flight timings work or a private transfer.
