The Plose ski area, just 7 km from the city of Bressanone/Brixen, is said to be one of the sunniest ski areas in South Tyrol and has much to offer, especially for connoisseurs. Skiers, tobogganers, and hikers all find the perfect winter experience on its sun-drenched slopes with spectacular views of the UNESCO World-Heritage Dolomites.


The broad pistes on the sunny slopes of the Plose offer a truly magnificent skiing experience. The many descents in varying degrees of difficulty make skiing here a highlight for beginners and pros alike. The legendary Trametsch descent is an absolute must for any ski fan. Starting near the Plosehütte mountain hut at 2,446 m, this incredible descent runs over gorgeous pistes to the lower station of the Plose gondola lift at 1,067 m. Covering 1,400 of elevation and 9 km of pure descent, the Trametsch is a real thrill. The fantastic views of the Dolomites from the sunny slopes of the Plose make skiing here a special experience.


Tobogganing and Hiking

The Plose is not just for skiers. Bressanone’s local mountains offers a wide range of tobogganing opportunities to suit both beginners as well as experienced tobogganers. The 9-km “RudiRun” toboggan run is one of the longest in the Alps. The toboggan run offers fun for everyone, and is an absolute must for any visit to the Plose. But the Plose has even more to offer: for example toboggan hikes to the Rossalm mountain hut or to the Skihütte mountain hut, where you can enjoy the sublime mountain vistas from above, and take refreshment in a cosy hut.

Those who would rather not toboggan can use the many different winter hiking trails and enjoy a sunny winter day enjoying the UNESCO World Heritage Dolomites by foot, either with snowshoes or winter hiking boots. There is a wide selection of hiking trails and guided snowshoe tours, sure to suit everyone’s taste.
