A collection of family-friendly villages nestled among the UNESCO-protected Dolomites.
- 110km of piste across five mountains, with access to an extra 100km in Kronplatz.
- Made up of a handful of small villages, all within walking distance to the slopes.
- Spot wild reindeer on the hill, or feed them at the Rotwand cabin lift.
The ski resort, made up of a handful of smaller villages, has access to 110km of piste over five mountains – all connected by a handy ski bus. So on one day you can greet the snowman family in Rotwand, before cruising down gentle pistes in Waldheim, and on another, tackle the steepest slope in Italy, the Holzriese, with an incredible 72% gradient. Boarders will love the Rienza area, which features the region's only airbag. The slopes have some of the best snowmaking facilities in Europe, too, so whatever the weather you’ll be out on the hill.
If that’s not enough, though, you can also take the snow train over to Kronplatz for an extra 100km of snowy runs. And the cherry on top? The snow train over to Kronplatz, as well as public buses that ferry you between the villages that make up the resort, are all free on the Holidaypass card.
The villages themselves each have their own perks. Sesto, for example, is a classic ski-in, ski-out base, with fantastic half-board hotels and luxurious spas. Its slopes are better suited to intermediates, with a good selection of reds runs to tackle. San Candido, on the other hand, is a pedestrianised village known for its trendy bars, restaurants and shops. Home to the Baranci ski area, San Candido also hosts night skiing every week, and has a good selection of family-friendly slopes.
