Ski area Drei Zinnen Dolomiten

Ski area Drei Zinnen Dolomiten

With the lift pass "Drei Zinnen Dolomiten" you have access to approx. 110 km of pistes, accessible via 38 lifts. Between the resorts of Sesto, San Candido and Dobbiaco, the Hochpustertal 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 8,5 km of piste available in the Haunold ski area. The ski area Sexten/Helm - Rotwand, easily reached from Sesto and Vierschach, offers the largest selection of pistes with approx. 75 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.

There are snow parks with tables, slides and jumps for freestylers and snowboarders at the chairlift in Helm, as well as at the Rienz lifts in Dobbiaco.

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 Drei 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.

Directly in San Candido is an adventure pool, "Acquafun" where young and old can both relax and have fun after a long day's skiing.

Snowpark: San Candido

The ski area Sextner Dolomiten features 3 fun parks: the "Drei Zinnen" snow park in Helm, the snowpark in Pragser Valley and the Shaka snow park in Dobbiaco.

In Dobbiaco you have the perfect opportunity to practise your jumps on the only Big Airbag in Alta Pusteria. Six jumps and ten rails can be found in the 200 m long fun park Rienz.
