One glance at the trail map may be enough to put greenhorns and rookies off visiting the ski area. However, the Sexten Dolomites certainly offer up good options when it comes to training slopes. Whether in Vierschach, Waldheim or Moos – these separate areas are an ideal practice ground thanks to the short and gentle gradients. In addition, all of the ski resorts in the area have ski schools which offer beginners the expert tuition of professional coaches.
If you are not completely new to winter sports, you will also likely be able to enjoy some other runs in the rest of the ski area. Down from the Raut chairlift in Vierschach, beginners can check out the Raut practice area (no. 18) and on Helm, you can catch the practice lift serving runs 15 & 15a. You will also find suitable slopes for beginners on the Rotwand, most notably Rotwandwiesen (no. 4). We also recommend taking the UNESCO ski route (no. I) on the Kreuzbergpass. From the mountain station of the Porzen ski lift, this route winds through 4.7 km of gentle and idyllic landscapes in this world heritage site – affording visitors breath-taking views of the Knieberg, known locally as the “little Matterhorn”. Another alternative for rookies are the runs on the Haunold in Innichen.
