Leaving your tracks on the mountain

New snow, powder, wet snow, firn, deep snow, névé. Snow is not just snow: away from the plowed and groomed ski slopes, winter shows itself to be multifaceted.  It has its silent, mystical side, but it also provides rough adventure. Nowhere can winter be experienced so directly as in the mountains. But anyone who would like to experience the wintry mountain world of the Val Pusteria-Pustertal valley and its side valleys has to conquer them first.

Towards heaven

So ski tourers get going early in the morning, well equipped with poles, fleeces, helmets, and everything else, also well outfitted for emergencies (avalanche transceivers, avalanche shovel, and probe). In a uniform motion, they pull on their skis and climb up the white slopes in a zigzag pattern. The rediscovery of slowness. But at some point, the cross on the summit is reached.

For both beginners and old hands at touring, for those who enjoy the landscape and those who storm the peak – in the Kronplatz Holiday Region, there are possibilities for ski touring with all degrees of difficulty. With the Dolomites on one side and the main ridge of the Alps on the other, gateways are offered with every combination of steepness, difficulty, and distance.

To each his own

The Valle di Casies-Gsieser Tal offers wonderful panorama tours, while the immediate vicinity of S. Vigilio and the high Alpine pastures of Fanes and Senes-Sennes are a genuine paradise for any alpine athlete.  For the particularly experienced, the high Alpine tours in the Valle Anterselva-Antholzertal are offered.

The general rules to follow are: check the avalanche risk, never go alone, and only attempt to conquer the mountains of the Kronplatz Holiday Region with good equipment.
