Ratschings ski area
In the Ratschings ski area, not far from Vipiteno/Sterzing, demanding skiers can carve over 25 km of perfectly groomed slopes. Mini ski stars will have a great time in the Kinderland play area while in the "fun park" beginners and professionals can practice tricks on the many obstacles. If they have protective equipment, they can also practice on the "Fun-Slope" with the snow elements. Particularly popular with experts are the north-side slopes, which feature grippy snow all they way to spring, or the "Saxner" valley ski run. Above the mountain station, the forest opens up to feature a wide plain that invites you to winter hikes. The toboggan run is the perfect way for the whole family to descend into the valley together. Cross-country skiers will find a challenge on the "Platschjoch High-Altitude Trail," which runs diagonally through the gentle winter landscape on the main chain of the Alps and through spruce forests.
