The Ski Resort
The South Tyrolean winter sports region offers pure skiing fun from the beginning of December to Easter. Since their merger into the Gitschberg-Jochtal ski area, the two areas in Vals and Meransen with more than 50 dreamlike kilometers of slopes in a snow-sure location at up to 2500 meters can convince. Beginners and beginners will feel particularly comfortable on the 17 kilometres of easy marked downhill runs and practice slopes down in the village. There are also 25 kilometres of red marked slopes in the ski area. Experienced skiers can choose from 9 kilometres of black slopes.
Particularly active athletes will also pause on the Gitschberg and enjoy the magnificent 360-degree view of more than 500 peaks and mountains. The gondola is also spectacular, as the cable car from and to Gitschberg, the Gaisjoch cable car, has a glass floor. Vals, on the other hand, is the perfect holiday destination for families. No long distances, no crowds of lifts - skiing fun begins practically at the front door, as most of the accommodations are located directly on the slopes.
In the three children's parks of the winter sports area, the kids can start their first attempts on the boards. Together with the teams of the ski schools they learn the ABC of winter sports. Once the first turns have been mastered, the magic carpets will take you back to the mountain in comfort.
Great and small freestyle fans will find a fun park in the ski area. The large snowpark at the Hinterberg in Jochtal offers a Pro Line, a Medium Line and an Easy Line with various obstacles. The little rookies are just right on the Woody Line. The Kids Parcour leads through the forest and is equipped with different wooden elements. The start is at runway no. 10 (sea runway).
