The Ski Resort

© Tourismusvereinigung Ultental-Proveis - Sebastian Stocker
The ski resort Schwemmalm is situated in the South Tyrolean Ulten valley and features 25 trail kilometers (15,5 miles) for all levels and abilities. The small ski resort is home to the ski stars Dominik Paris and Siegmar Klotz. Moreover it´s the training location of the Italian national team. So one thing is certain: Schwemmalm is a great spot for athletic skiers and real experts.

The height difference is significant by featuring 1150 meters (3772 feet) in the valley of Kuppelwies and 2658 meters (8720 feet) on the peak of Mutegg. Access the ski resort by riding the Schwemmalm gondola, that has its base in Kuppelwies. Especially intermediate skiers are going to enjoy themselves because Sinkmoss run, Schwemmalm run and Asmol run are all red and are slightly better for skiers with more experience.

If you don´t feel safe enough on your skis just yet then check out the training runs serviced by the training lift. Even the little ones don´t miss out: The ski kindergarten Bährenhöhle takes care of kids between three and eight years and the youngsters actually get to explore one or the other adventure. Located right at the mountain station Schwemmalm is Schwemmys snow world. Dive into a fairytale world of ice and snow. Schwemmys snow world is literally a castle made out of snow, that invites for hours of  playing and going crazy. The heated tepee is great for warming up after an expanded snowball fight.  

Newest highlight at Schwemmalm is BAGJUMP, that guarantees an adrenaline rush for everyone. Overcome the kicker and after a  free fall you will land safely on an air cushion.
