Fancy experiencing the Dolomites UNESCO World Heritage up close? Fancy something a bit special? Then let us recommend you the “Giro delle Cime”, the summit tour on skis. 5,600 altitude m on skis, 43 km of downhill slopes with perfectly groomed slopes and eleven panoramic lifts rides – these are the corner stones of this varied tour across the five ski areas Elmo/Helm, Orto del Toro/Stiergarten, Croda Rossa/Rotwand, Monte Croce/Kreuzberg, Val Comelico and back. Selected stretches are crossed with the SALTO ski shuttle.
Free Fall Ride
Daily on request
Lots of adrenaline and exciting insights into the daily work at cable car and lift stations is offered to experienced piste athletes choosing the “Free Fall Ride” in the Three Peaks/3 Zinnen Dolomites ski resort. Accompany technicians into the cockpit of a snow groomer on its evening ride, which provides almost exactly as much thrill on Italy’s steepest groomed slope (72%) as the descent itself. Once the slopes are prepared for the next day, you can head back to the valley by snow groomer.
28.12.2017 – 05.04.2018 | 2.00 p.m.
Italy’s only reindeer herd are the famous, local stars of the vast preserve at the Croda Rossa/Rotwand. Feeling homey in the wild nature of the Three Peaks in the Dolomites, the shaggy animals provide amusing and fascinating encounters, sometimes even on the ski slopes. The reindeer feeding at the Croda Rossa/Rotwand mountain station is not only an unforgettable winter highlight for kids. Visitors may also lend a helping hand when the smallest reindeer herd of the Alps gets its main course consisting of islandic moss and mixed grain balls, “reindeer bonbons”, for dessert.
