Ski tours in the Dolomites
The Puster Valley and its surrounding valleys have lots of secret tips for ski tourers. The not-too-high peaks of the surroundings above Pfalzen, Gais, St. Lorenzen and Percha and Terner Jöchl are popular for ski tourers. Just a bit further out, the Gsies Valley, San Vigilio and the high plateaus of Fanes and Sennes offer wonderful panorama tours in the Dolomites for all mountaineers. Pros might prefer the high-Alpine tours in the Rieserferner Ahrn Nature Park. Guided ski tours are highly recommended for beginners. These are offered weekly as part of the free KronAktiv winter programme.
Snowshoeing is particularly on trend. Tours at altitude are really spectacular. The best way to discover the most beautiful nooks of the region is with an experienced mountain guide. There is a weekly guidedsnowshoeing tour, which is part of the free KronAktiv winter programme and highly recommended for beginners.
Because of the winter temperatures in the Kronplatz holiday region, there are lots of natural ice rinks. Leave tracks on the smooth mirrored surface – this is the stuff both kids and adults dream of. There are ice rinks in the Reischach sports park, in St. Lorenzen, and in the ice stadium in Bruneck. Ice skates are available for hire at all ice rinks.
This ancient traditional sport is widely popular in South Tyrol. Especially in the wintry regions – when the first below-zero temperatures create the best curling conditions – you will see the passionate curlers on the ice with their heavy stones. And curling is big in the Kronplatz holiday region! There are ice rinks reserved for curling in Reischach and Stefansdorf where you can try out the sport for yourself.
