Ski area Plan de Corones

Ski area Plan de Corones

The ski area around the Plan de Corones (2,275 m), South Tyrols ski no. 1 ski mountain, is known as snow secure from December to April due to its several snow machines. 119 km of piste and 32 modern lifts take you to altitudes between 973 m and 2,275 m, offering young and old a good time. A ski bus connects Chienes with the ski area.

Beginners, children and families will particularly like the 8-person gondola "Croni Express", which takes you to a 100 m wide piste covering 160 m altitude difference. Plan de Corones is generally a very family-friendly ski area with plenty of offers for children. You can find e.g. the "Croniworld" at the peak of the Plan de Corones, where parents can watch their children's progress and enjoy the beautiful 360 degree panorama. The longest run is 6 km and goes down to Olang-Gassl, covering an altitude difference of 1,096 m.

More experienced alpine skiers will enjoy the "Black Five" - the 5 black pistes Sylvester, Herrnegg, Pre da Peres, Erta and Piculin. Three valley runs into three different cardinal directions round off the offer. Night skiing is also possible on two floodlit pistes. The ski area is scene of diverse sports events such as the Snowboard Worldcup. A series of lift pass purchasing points and free Wi-Fi hotspots is available throughout the area.

During the previous season, Plan de Corones was upgraded: the popular Sonnenlift was replaced, completely renewed and many features like heated seats and protective covers were added. The Miara cabins now have free Wi-Fi and the artificial snow-making facilities were improved.

For an even bigger choice of pistes, the upgrade to the "Dolomit Superski" lift pass is possible, giving you the choice of 1,200 km of piste and 450 lifts!

Night skiing Chienes

Everybody who is a fan of night skiing can visit the neighbouring resort Terenten every Tuesday and Friday at 19:00. Here the lifts are open for night skiing until 21:30. The approx. 1.3 km blue piste offers a wonderful view of the valley.

In San Vigilio di Marebbe, the approx. 700 m Ciancross-slope is also open Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays from 20:00 - 22:00 for skiing at night time. Tobogganing is also possible here.

A further popular meeting point for night skiing is the Korer piste in Riscone. The approx. 1.7 km piste, which is also ideally suited for tobogganing, is open every Tuesday and Saturday from 19:30 - 22:00.

Last but not least you can also use the night skiing offer at Guggenberg lift in Taisten with its 1.5 km piste. The lifts operate every Friday from 19:30 - 22:00.

Après ski Chienes

The après ski offer in the region can be found in close vicinity of the ski area, e.g. at the valley station of the Plan de Corones, where several après ski bars are a good place to finish the day. In Brunico, you can find e.g. the Après Ski Tenne, in Valdaora there is the Gassl Bar and the Skistadl. Afterwards, in Chienes, the evening comes to a more quiet end. The hearty rural cuisine makes you gain back your strength.

If you prefer a more sporty evening after a day's skiing, you could try tobogganing. Guests gather at the natural toboggan run at Moarhofalm for some fun in the moonlight. A natural ice rink can also be found in Chienes. And how about a snowshoe hike to explore the picturesque surroundings? Once a week, guided tours are organised.

Snowpark: Snowpark Kronplatz Chienes

Freestylers have not one but even two snowparks to enjoy in the ski area Konplatz. It's beginners and the freestyle-offspring that will enjoy this area, but pros can also work on their tricks here. The Easy Park is located directly at the Belvedere mountain station, where an approx. 800 m long line awaits beginners with rather simple obstacles. There's an easy and a medium rail, a medium kicker line and the following elements: 6 easy kickers, 6 boxes, 7 medium rails and 2 medium kicker tables. Additionally there is a family fun line with whoops, steep curves, tunnels, fun run elements and a new F-tech family fun box.

The Korer Park is more challenging: it's located at the Korer piste and makes freestyle fun on 6,000 m altitude possible. Here you can find 4 different 6 m butter boxes and a 9 m flat down flat butter box.
