Downhill & Freeride 

In 2010, the Herrnsteig became the first designated downhill trail in South Tyrol-Südtirol. It is open from June to mid-October but closed to hikers and other pedestrians. The ascent is with the Plan de Corones-Kronplatz cable car from Riscone-Reischach. In 2014, the simpler and shorter Furcia was opened, and in the summer of 2015, the Piz de Plaies and the Gassl were inaugurated. All of them will be open from July to September, depending upon the summer operating hours of the cable cars.  

  • Herrnsteig: 1,300 m (4,300 ft.) elevation change, 8 km (5 miles) distance, Kronplatz 2000 cable car, descent toward Riscone. 
  • Furcia: 500 m (1,600 ft.) elevation change, 4.7 km (2.9 miles) distance, Ruis cable car, descent to the Passo di Furcia-Furkelpass  
  • Piz de Plaies: 385 m (1,200 ft.) elevation change, 3.8 km (2.4 miles) distance, Piz de Plaies cable car, descent to S. Vigilio di Marebbe-St. Vigil in Enneberg 
  • Gassl: 1,110 m elevation change, 8.6 km (5 miles) distance, Olang 1+2 cable car
  • Off-road Trails: Reserve guides from the Outdoor Center Kronplatz! 


Are you getting curious?  Is your reason letting go and your heart taking over?  Then only one thing can help: signing up for a get-acquainted course and then trying it out!  The Outdoor Center provides the perfect support.  The right bike (it’s best to leave the lightweight carbon fiber model down the hill) and the complete “suit of armor” with upper body protection, arm and leg guards, gloves, and a closed helmet transform the biker into a courageous knight.

Anyone wishing to hone their skills will try their tires on the 30 m (100 ft.) long Pumptrack next to the valley terminal of the Kronplatz 2000 cable car.  The Funline is the place for kids to romp around.  But a few old hands or late starters can still learn a thing or two! Still have questions?  The freeride team at the Outdoor Center Kronplatz is the best place to start.
