Words do not suffice to describe the most famous, largest ski area in all of South Tyrol, the Plan de Corones. With its three main access points from Brunico Riscone, Valdaora and San Vigilio di Marebbe, with the addition of the train station in Perca a few years ago, the mountain that is divided between Val Pusteria and Marebbano is the undisputed kingdom of skiing and all related disciplines, from freeride to snowboarding to free style. In addition to over 1000 acres of mountain dedicated to ski slopes, ski cannons that guarantee skiable conditions from the start of the season to the very end, the easy connection to Alta Pusteria, from cable car to cable car, to Alta Badia and Sella Ronda, with the skibus, makes it the number 1 ski center, widely recognized throughout South Tyrol and probably the whole of the Alps. Unique 360° views, wide-ranging and high-level gastronomy for moments of down-time, excellent training and the most modern technology for transport and comfort of service for skiers as well as opportunities for daily entertainment throughout the season, make it the ideal location for a holiday and for many snow-filled weekends.
As well as the ski lifts of the Alta Badia, directly linked to the skibus, and the cable cars in San Vigilio and San Martino, a few minutes away from the two Ladin centers, you will find other ski resorts, with different features and also linked by public transport. From the train station in Brunico or Perca, you can get the train directly to the ski lifts at Alta Pusteria and Monte Elmo while, in a northern direction, in Val di Tures and Aurina, you will find respectively the ski lifts of Monte Spico in Campo Tures and Monte Chiusetta in Cadipietra. Finally, from Rio di Pusteria, you can get to the ski lifts in Maranza and Valles.
Hop from Kronplatz across into the Sella Ronda? No problem at all. Our skibus shuttle takes you straight from the Piculin cable car valley station to Sompunt (Sponata) in Alta Badia, with services running every 20 minutes. From there it should take you roughly an hour to reach Corvara where you can begin skiing the Sella Ronda - either clockwise (orange route) or anti-clockwise (green route).
Note: The ski bus transfer service is in operation from 04.12.21 to 10.04.22 (only guaranteed if the lifts Piculin and Sponata are open in the reference period).
The cable car Piculin can be reached from Antermoia, Lunigarü and San Martin by ski bus. For guests with a guest's card (Holidaypass), the ski bus transfer is free. Guests of the facilities not affiliated with the Tourist Association can buy the daily or weekly ticket at the tourist office.
Note: The ski bus transfer service is in operation from 18.12.21 to 20.03.22
You’re not sure what to do after dinner, but you don’t want to stay in your hotel?
Very well! Then why not get back on your skis and try the experience of nighttime skiing? Where? Why, on the Cianross run of course, in the heart of San Vigilio, which was also host to the European alpine ski cup. On Tuesdays and Thursdays, from Christmas to Easter, the cable cars reopen from 8 to 10 pm with floodlit ski runs that have been re-prepared while the runs were shut. You can ski yourself (the ticket is included in every multi-day skipass) or bring your children and, while they enjoy themselves like crazy. As the evening comes to a close, or instead of skiing, the Cianross facility also offers you a floodlit sledding track, for the last time or for several more goes!
