Why make a decision when you can have it all? The 32 modern cable cars transporting skiers to 119 kilometres of well groomed slopes attract many visitors to Antholz, but there is much more to discover on the Kronplatz besides skiing. Those who vanquish the South Tyrolean mountains on guided ski tours can be very pleased with themselves.
Fun on the slopes for amateurs and pros
You don’t have to go far to take your first steps on the skis or snowboard. The Riepenlift, South Tyrol’s longest ski tow, is suitable for beginners and lies just one kilometre from the Vierbrunnenhof. Those with more skiing experience will be delighted by the connections to the world’s largest skiing carousel, the Dolomiti Superski, when skiing on the Kronplatz. You can take the free ski bus to the valley station in Olang to get to the famous Black Five, the black runs for those who like a tough challenge.
Ski tours – getting up close and personal with the mountain
Nowhere else will you get as close to the heavens under your own steam than when conquering the mountains. On ski tours through the wonderful natural surroundings of South Tyrol’s mountains, you can combine the high-performance sport of mountain climbing with the pleasure of an endless descent through pristine powdery snow.
If you are fit, know how to ski and have the right equipment, there is nothing better than being shown the best places for views of the surrounding mountains by a mountain guide who knows the local area. Trust in their knowledge of the local weather and snow, and your ski tour will become an unforgettable experience that will stay with you for years to come.
The two tours with the most stunning views at the Vierbrunnenhof go from the Antholzer See lake to the Staller Saddle mountain pass up to the Rote Wand mountain and from the Lackenstüberl restaurant on the Staller Saddle mountain pass via the Jägerscharte wind gap to the 2,986 m high Almerhorn in the Defereggen Valley. The first tour is easier but no less impressive. But you need a bit of experience for the second tour so that you can truly enjoy it.
