The magic of winter in Val Pusteria

Experiences between ice and snow

The winter sun glistens in the snow and warms the skin. Outdoor activities entice you outdoors. Winter can be so varied.

Modern lifts, skiing up to 2,500 m, snow-covered ski runs, night skiing, halfpipes and a snow fun park – these are only some of the many highlights. Always included: the captivating view of the Dolomite peaks in the middle of the Unesco World Heritage Dolomites.
