Would you like to be the first to hit the slopes in the morning and the last one out in the evening? There’s still something left: already in autumn, while the wine grape harvest is in full swing in the valley below, passionate skiers can make their first turns on the slopes of Sulden and Schnalstal valley ski resorts. The glacier ski area of the Schnalstal valley opens its slopes from late September. The perfectly groomed 42 km of slopes are at an height of 2,000-3,200 m and offer some challenging descents. The first days of the season are also lived by professional skiers - the ski resort is a popular training location that hosts international ski teams. Sulden ski resort is considered to be the most snow-sure ski area in South Tyrol. The 44 km of slopes are located at 1,900 to 3,250 m above sea level, nestled in the astonishing Ortler mountain range in the Stilfserjoch National Park. If you can't get enough of skiing, here's the scoop: the two ski areas will remain open until spring.
