Ski area 3 Zinnen Dolomiten

With the lift pass "3 Zinnen Dolomiten" you have access to approx. 115 km of pistes, accessible via 39 lifts. Between the resorts of Sesto, San Candido and Dobbiaco, the 3 Zinnen Dolomites offers several nice little ski areas with huge variety: smooth pistes for beginners and families, demanding descents for both intermediates and wallowers and extreme slopes at Raut and Holzriese for pros to show off their skills.

In San Candido itself there are 13 km of piste available in the Haunold ski area. The ski area Helm/Stiergarte/Rotwand/Kreuzbergpass, easily reached from Sesto and Vierschach, offers the largest selection of pistes with approx. 86 km. Some particularly challenging pistes, such as the "Holzriese 2" run, which is one of Italy's steepest pistes, lead by below the cliffs of the Rotwandspitze. This run has a 71% decline and spans 700 m with an altitude difference of 300 m. Those who dare to take on the entire valley can have a go on the "Giro Delle Cime" (Sesto Dolomite Round). This day trip takes you across five mountains and around 30 km of piste, crossing 9,700 altitude meters.

Rules of conduct on ski pistes in Italy

To ensure safety on the ski slopes in Italy, stricter safety regulations have been in force since 2022. In order to use the ski areas, everyone must have liability insurance that covers damage to third parties. It will also be possible to take out this insurance on site for individual days. Drunken skiing is prohibited and punishable by heavy fines, with a maximum of 0.5 mg of alcohol per litre of blood. To reduce the risk of injury, helmets are also compulsory for all minors when skiing, snowboarding or tobogganing.

Night skiing San Candido

Several ski areas in Italy illuminate some of their pistes for night skiing. Like this, winter sports fans can enjoy the night-time skiing fun also in San Candido. The ski area 3 Zinnen Dolomiten is one of those night ski areas where you can go skiing by night time. In San Candido, the piste at Haunold is opened for night skiing every Tuesday and Friday. Night tobogganing is also possible at Haunold. When you are in need of a snack after skiing can take a break at the Riese-Haunold hut and enjoy regional delicacies and drinks.

Après ski San Candido

You can end a day's skiing quietly in the family-friendly skiing area. Or all the same you can of course comfortably end the day in the traditional huts or typical restaurants and cafés. If you want to carry on being active off-piste, there are various skating rinks and toboggan runs nearby.

For something quieter there are winter hiking trails where you can peacefully enjoy the wonderful view of the Dolomites. Another option is snow shoe hiking, which you can also take part in as a guided tour. A more comfortable alternative is a horse-drawn sleigh ride.

Snowpark: Kids Skicross Park San Candido

Freestylers get their money's worth at the Kids Skicross Park in the Haunold ski area. Now even amateurs can try their hand on the legendary ski cross world cup slope. It features 6 steep turns, 12 waves and 4 kickers.

The family programme has recently been rounded off with two new Family Funslopes with banked turns, waves, snow tunnels, bridges and snails. These are located on the "Rotwand" and "Helm" ski mountains.
