The Ski Resort

Located in the heart of Southern Tyrol boasts Kronplatz 116 kilometers (72 miles) of skiable terrain for all levels and abilities. It´s top elevation of 2.275 meters (7463 feet) guarantees best snow conditions during the entire season. But even if mother nature isn´t willing to treat the area with snow, a total of 100% of the runs can be covered with artificial snow. Situated on a plateau, Kronplatz is the perfect place for all sun seeking winter athletes. Enjoy the 360 degree panoramic view of the breathtaking surrounding dolomite mountains. This makes your visit here at the Southern Tyrols´s No. 1 ski mountain extra special.

Once you made it up to summit of Kronplatz you are spoilt for choice because you can head in three different directions. There are plenty of lower runs where beginners can cruise along comfortably at Geiselberg, almost all trails are blue here. Exceptions are No. 21-23, those are marked red and are ideal for those who have already gained a little bit of knowledge. The easy runs are so close that you can easily hop between them so you don´t be scared to accidentally hit a difficult one.

Intermediate skiers and boarders find runs going all directions. However, if you decide to go to Reischach be aware that you need expert skills because you can only get there by taking two blacks (No. 1 and 4). So beginners may want to steer clear of this direction and decide for an other one. If you want to enjoy a really long slope, pick No. 16 that descends right into Percha.

Get your unique souvenir from the ski vacation at Kronplatz on the ski movie slope and the photo point. Register with your valid ski pass and film your own ski movie or take great pictures in front of the Alp panorama. Afterwards you can easily download it.

If you are a freestyle fan choose between two parks: the Easy Park and Jip Park. The Easy Park is below the Belverdere top station and features an area of 18.000 qm (193750 square ft). This one makes every freestyler´s heart race faster: kickers, boxes, rails and much more. Access the 6000 qm (64583 square ft) Jib Park from the trail Korer. Most of the features are specially designed for kids and beginners.

Little ones find quite a few kids parks so boredom is never a topic on a ski day at Kronplatz. Look for the amazing kids areas that are for example at the Kronplatz summit  and the base station of Bruneck/ Reischach.

On Mountain Dining

Skirama Kronplatz
Throughout the resort there are 30 restaurants available that offer great snacks and more for hungry snow enthusiasts. Why not take a break? Located right at the Kronplatz plateau is the mid-mountain hut Ücia Corones. Try the Tyrolean treats like Schlutzkrapfen (pasta specialty) and Kasnocken (cheese pasta). Pizzeria Dolasilla serves great pizza at the base station Bruneck. Herzl Alm is another good stop for a lunch break by featuring the comfiest atmosphere you can possibly imagine at the trail 3- Pramstall. These are just to name a few, there are countless places that leave you tempted for a stop.

Activities

Non-skiing activities in Kronplatz are also worth taking a look at. Dive deep into the white winter landscape while making a winter hiking tour. Depending on your personal fitness decide for a short tour or even a day hike. The tour Astjoch is especially beautiful.

More comfortable is a horse sleigh ride. You glide through the romantic landscape, wrapped in your warm and comfy clothes-a great experience for everyone, not only young lovers! The ice rinks in the surrounding towns are perfect for ice hockey or feeling like a ice princess.

The charming town Bruneck invites for a stroll. The city from the middle-age welcomes with narrow alleys and for all culture enthusiasts is the Messner Mountain Museum Ripa real interesting.

Après-Ski and Nightlife

On the mountain and around are tons of Apres-ski bars. The Giggeralm has a reputation for good nightlife and is right at the Bruneck valley station. It´s kind of a must because it gets pretty lively here. But Skistadl in Olang doesn´t has to hide either. If you don´t want to start drinking with an empty stomach, pay a visit to the Gassl Bar because it includes a really good pizzeria.

Dining and Restaurants

I would like to warn all the skiers not to book their holidays at an Apartment Unterberger in Kronplatz. The owner is a fraud. He robbed us for 350 EUR. We made a small damage on the door made from...
