Yesterday everybody went skiing. Simply skiing. Some hoteliers who have been there from the start can tell you about the first and only tow lift on the slope. A lot has happened in South Tyrol since then and every ski resort has developed its own character. But you can still make out some types. We have chosen our top 3 for 7 aspects of skiing.
For skiing down
A wide variety of long and tricky pistes means paradise for experienced skiers. There is more than 12 km of black piste in Gröden, Kronplatz and Sulden.
For the aprés ski
Skiing is meant to be sociable. The aprés ski scene has greatly intensified all over South Tyrol over the past few decades. Our top picks are Kronplatz (where in 1988 all began with the first “Loknfest”), Latemar Obereggen and Speikboden.
For taking off from
Any skier wishing to acquire an air of coolness has to get up there. Halfpipes, rails, kickers, and whoops provide the necessary credentials for freeriders and snowboarders with ambition. There are excellent snowparks on the Seiser Alm and in Schöneben as well as on the Plose.
As far as the eye can see
There are plenty of viewpoints from the pistes of South Tyrol. Our choice for unparalleled far-reaching views: Meran 2000, Rittner Horn and Kronplatz.
For the food
A good meal keeps body and soul together. South Tyrolean chefs have long been of this view. We particularly enjoy the food when skiing at Latemar Obereggen, Gitschberg Jochtal and in Alta Badia.
For setting off from
Those wishing to test their stamina prefer the Nordic version of skiing. South Tyrol has excellently-prepared cross-country ski pistes enjoying amazing mountain views. We recommend the Seiser Alm, Jochgrimm and Antholzertal.
For handing over little charges
When combining the needs of all family members becomes tricky, a service for minding kids on skis can be worth its weight in gold. There are great ski nurseries in Carezza, on Klausberg and in Ratschings.
An interesting, good-value alternative for families are the small ski resorts in South Tyrol!
