Winter Holiday in the Schnalstal Valley Skiing and winter fun on the Schnalstal Valley Glacier

The skiing area on the Schnalstal Valley Glacier offers 35 kilometres of prepared slopes and pure ski fun for winter sports enthusiasts and families, all year round. 18 different slopes of varying degrees of difficulty, 1 snow park for freeriders and snowboarders, a tobogganing hill and 2 Nordic ski tracks make the ski region a special experience. Those who come to ski will certainly get their money’s worth – no overcrowded slopes, no waiting for lifts and no mass tourism. Just this guarantee: there will be snow. That’s the reason Marcel Hirscher and his elite competitive skiers train on the Schnalstal Valley Glacier. The cable var whisks you up to 3,212 metres, where you can enjoy a unique panorama view over the Alps. The Schnalstal Valley Glacier is a true gem. The views are incomparable in South Tyrol and skiers love the abundance of sunshine. The numerous rustic mountain huts and inns invite one to warm up, have a bite to eat and enjoy the ambience.

Currently:The family-friendly glacier ski area is open continuously from September until May.

The new Lazaun lift cuts riding times significantly and offers a comfortable ascent in the gondolas.
