Italian Alps skiing: pure winter fun for everyone

Ski fun in the Rosskopf ski resort in Sterzing-Vipiteno

On the Rosskopf ski resort in Vipiteno-Sterzing winter fun takes all sorts of shapes: cross-country or downhill skiing, ski tours, sledging, snowboarding, ice skating or just relaxing and soaking up the atmosphere! The ski resort around Sterzing’s Rosskopf is called Ratschings-Jaufen and is known for its perfect cross-country skiing circuits while nearby Ladurns with its perfectly prepared pistes will make the heart of any winter sports enthusiast beat a little faster: this paradise for skiing and cross-country skiing in the Italian Alps is located only 1 km from our hotel and will leave nothing at all to be desired.

Monte Cavallo: a skiing and snowboard paradise

As of the 2019 winter season, it is possible to reach the peak of Mount Cavallo with the brand-new six-seater chairlift, which allows you to enjoy a unique panorama. Furthermore, there is also a new descent into the valley, 5 km long, which will take you directly to the pedestrian area of Vipiteno.

For those taking their first steps out onto the ski-runs, we recommend the Vipiteno ski and snowboard school, which offers both individual and group courses for all levels.

Cross-country skiing as well as downhill skiing!

Beaten trails that wind through forests and over fields will provide you with an unforgettable holiday.

Christmas in the mountains of Sterzing-Vipiteno

If you don't fancy spending your days on the Italian alps skiing, you can instead visit the Christmas Market in Sterzing-Vipiteno. Prepare to be enchanted by one of the most romantic Christmas markets in all of South Tirol.

The artistically carved nativity scenes are displayed to full effect in the little stalls, decorated with moss and fronds of fir trees from the forests. Twinkling garlands of lights and fir branches mark out the path to the Christmas market, where you can admire or buy hand-made Christmas tree decorations made of glass, straw and wood or traditional handcrafts such as "Patschen" – cosy slippers with lambswool lining.

Don’t forget that during the winter you can also skate beneath the Torre delle Dodici in the heart of Vipiteno... what could be more magical?

Descend into the valley with sledges and toboggans - Vipiteno offers you 9.6 km of runs!

The longest illuminated snow-covered toboggan run in Italy is located in Vipiteno, Alto Adige. The toboggan is the most popular mode of transport for families and whoever wants to get down the mountain quickly. On Mount Cavallo you don’t need to drag the toboggan all the way to the peak, there is a gondola lift to do all the hard work for you! And after a break in one of the many cosy chalets on Mount Cavallo, its straight back down to the valley.

If instead you are looking for quieter and less crowded toboggan runs, we recommend the ones from Malga Pranter and Malga Allriss, which are ideal for a moonlit ride.
