It’s only three kilometers (two miles) from the hotel in tranquil Valdaora di Mezzo-Mitterolang to the ski lift facilities in Casola-Gassl. The lifts Olang I+II will transport both biker and bike 1,100 m (3,600 ft.) up into the lofty heights on the Plan de Corones-Kronplatz. A panorama that will make you stop whatever you’re doing. And after that, nothing but freedom. Just choose the descent and away you go. Gassl, Herrnsteig, Furcia, or Piz de Plaies? The Funtrail and the Bike Competence Centre are also easy to reach. Then, as a last descent, you can take the Furcia and then ride over Provincial Route 43 with little traffic to return back to Valdaora-Olang. With the HOLIDAYPASS, the use of the bus and train with local public transportation is also economical and uncomplicated. Freeride in both senses of the term! (note: during the rush hour the transportation of bikes is not guaranteed; bike transport on bus and citybus is not allowed).
The Freeride Trail Gassl starts from the top of the Kronplatz and goes down until the valley station of the cable car Valdaora 1+2. An ideal trail for both beginners and advanced riders!
