On the 38 km (24 miles) of ski slopes, there is something for everybody. Seven modern lifts provide for a quick ascent before you can head down the valley at your own speed – leisurely or lightning fast. On the Easy Line and the Medium Line of the 700m long Fun Park, snowboarders and freestylers will also find everything that their adrenaline-charged hearts desire. The specialized ski school with 40 teachers care for ski and snowboard beginners and advanced athletes.
Speikboden is also well-known for its excellent restaurants and ski huts. There are a total of six restaurants on the mountain – including the Sonklarhütte, which was voted 'Most Beautiful Ski Hut of the Year' in 2014 – as well as three traditional huts and three top après ski bars.
The resort is also home to the longest toboggan run in South Tyrol, while hikers and nature lovers can enjoy fabulous 360° views from 2400m altitude and marvel at 150 mountain peaks in the area. Speikboden is always worth a visit, not least thanks to its unique glass igloo at 2000m offering stylish après ski at its best. Other popular bars are Paulas Schirmpub and the Ahris Bar.
For once, sleeping like the Inuit. On the Speikboden not only ski dreams come true – a night in an igloo becomes possible too. And because holidays in the Tauferer Ahrntal are a culinary highlight, the overnight stay is topped with a typical cuisine. After dinner, when it is time to crawl into the sleeping bags, everyone will realize that sleeping in an igloo is not that cold after all.
The igloos are not far from the mountain station of the Speikboden-lift facilities at an altitude of 2000 meters. This is where cold dreams heat up and where adventures are no longer a dream, but reality.
In this ski area, there are two sled runs at once, one of which can boast the distinction of being the longest sled run in all South Tyrol-Südtirol.
The starting point of both sled runs is located at the mountain terminal which can be reached without any problems with the Speikboden cable car.
