A small, all-year skiing area with snow guaranteed in the heart of the South Tyrolean Alps a stone’s throw away from Meran. Special features include the peaceful location far from the mass ski resorts of the Dolomites and the area’s openness. The large-cabin gondolas of the cable railway can take up to 80 people up to the Hochjochferner in 6 minutes from where an 8-km long downhill run awaits the many winter fans. You can get to the nearby ski runs easily from the valley using the chair lift. The region is ideal for both beginners and specialists alike. Each year, various national skiing teams come to our glacier for their pre-season training. Pleasant surroundings and a friendly atmosphere guarantee wonderful winter evenings. Famous because of the nearby site where iceman Ötzi was discovered on the Hauslabjoch, the Schnalstal skiing area offers ideal conditions for sporting families and winter-sports enthusiasts of all ages.
Snowpark: 135.000 square meters of glacier-area have been transformed into a wonderful playground. It is equiped with an easyline, a mediumline and a proline to make sure, all snowboarders and freestyle-skiers will find their favorites. The Nitro snow park is taken care of daily by hand and by snowcat. You will find the park closed in case of heavy snowfall or extreme foggy weather with no sight at all.

Après-ski comes from the French for “After Skiing” but is now used universally and refers to the socializing that is popular after a days skiing ends. When the sun goes down is when the ski resorts come alive and enjoying a steaming mug of hot Chocolate laced with rum or a glass of hot Gluhwein whilst watching the sunset over the snow covered mountain peaks is a memory which will last a life-time.
