Bolzano Bozen and environs
Winter holidays in the Reinswald ski area
The sunny ski area in the authentic Sarntal valley near Bolzano/Bozen is ideal for families: the ski lifts transport you up to 2,400 m above sea level, where varied, partly even FIS European Cup-tested slopes await you. At the same time, leisure-minded skiers prefer to carve tracks on the "Pichlberg-Plankenhorn" slope and experts test their courage on the "Joch slope" with up to 58 % incline. Elsewhere, snowboarders practice jumps at the "Sunpark" and cross-country skiers glide through the idyllic landscape beneath the foot of the Sarntal Alps to the scent of mountain pine thickets. With a little luck, you might be able to sample the traditional "Sarner Striezl" bread filled with Speck smoked ham at the valley station. The Reinswald ski area is also famous for its toboggan runs. Sledging fans from all over South Tyrol gather in Reinswald on full moon nights: While romantics sledge along the 4.5-km "Reinswalder Wiesen" track, speed-demons zip down the short but quick "Sunnalm" toboggan run.
