Ski area Plan de Corones

Only about 20 minutes away from the idyllic municipality of Monguelfo-Tesido lies the Plan de Corones ski area, which can be reached by winter holidaymakers from Monguelfo-Tesido via the Gassl/Valdaora valley station. Winter sports fans with a wide range of interests will find 119 kilometres of pistes, 32 modern lifts and breathtaking views of the fascinating mountain world of the Dolomites in the Plan de Corones ski area. Whether beginner, expert, freestyler or family - everyone will find what they are looking for along the varied pistes between 973 m and 2,275 m. Thanks to more than 200 snow-making facilities, the ski area has a high degree of snow reliability and is usually open from December to April. The lively après ski scene and the wide range of sports and leisure activities around Plan de Corones ensure a lot of good humour off the piste as well.

The 52 km of blue and 42 km of red slopes in the Plan de Corones ski area are ideal for beginners and families. On the particularly wide pistes, visitors can spread out and learn their first turns in the best possible way. In the lovingly-designed children's lands of the "Croniworld", little snow lovers can learn about winter sports in a playful way. Experienced skiers and snowboarders can head for the 25 kilometres of black pistes in the Plan de Corones ski area. Experienced snow lovers can put their skills to the test on the famous valley runs "Hernegg" and "Sylvester", both around 5 km long. But beware: the "Hernegg" piste covers around 1,300 m and has a gradient of up to 60%. Here, winter sports fans need not only good technique and stamina, but also a good dose of courage. Freestylers can look forward to two modern fun parks with excellent shaped kickers and a wide range of boxes and rails in the Plan de Corones ski area.

With the "Dolomiti Superski" lift pass upgrade, snow lovers have the opportunity to explore a total of 1,200 kilometres of pistes and 448 lifts in 12 ski areas.

By the way: In Tesido, there is a small, sunny ski area - the "Skilift Guggenberg" - with its own ski school, which is ideal for families. There is also illuminated skiing every Friday evening from 19:30 - 22:00.

Night skiing Monguelfo-Tesido

Gliding over the glistening snow on a starry night - an unforgettable experience. Night skiing under floodlights takes place once a week at the small "Gluggenberg" village lift in Taisten. In the Kronplatz ski area, approx. 20 minutes away, there is also a wide range of floodlit slopes. On various evenings of the week, the "Cianross", "Korer", "Terenten" and "Guggenberg" slopes are opened and illuminated by floodlights. Lovers of tobogganing can also rejoice, as the two pistes "Korer" and "Cianross" can also be used as a night toboggan run.

Après ski Monguelfo-Tesido

Après ski lovers will definitely get their money's worth around the Plan de Corones ski area. The most action can be found at the valley stations of Brunico, Valdaora and Reischach. Those who still feel up for après ski after a day on the pistes should plan a visit to the "K1 Après-Ski". Here, you can sing and dance to the latest après ski hits on two floors. In the rustic après ski bar "Tenne", hard-drinking winter sports fans will find the longest bar in South Tyrol in a rustic ambience.

In addition to the lively après ski at Plan de Corones, there is a wide range of leisure and sports activities in Monguelfo-Tesido. In summer as well as in winter, numerous hiking trails attract hiking fans to the municipality. The hiking trails in the region are well signposted, providing hikers with a diverse range of more or less challenging routes. Nature-lovers should plan a hike to the "Taistner Vorderalm". At an altitude of 2,012 m, you have a fantastic view over the valley and the mountains of the Dolomites.

Tobogganing fans also get their money's worth on the hills around Monguelfo-Tesido. How about a hike to one of the many alpine pastures before heading down the valley on a toboggan? Here, for example, the toboggan run from the Taistner Vorderalm to the Mudlerhof is a good choice. On 4.1 km, tobogganers conquer a difference in altitude of almost 400 metres. There are also wonderful toboggan runs in the nearby Plan de Corones ski area, such as the "Cianross" at the valley station of the same name.

Winter holidaymakers interested in culture should consider a trip to Welsberg Castle. The oldest castle in the Alta Pusteria valley with its characteristic keep is definitely worth a visit.

Snowpark: Snowpark Kronplatz Monguelfo-Tesido

In the Plan de Corones ski area, which can be reached in about 20 minutes from Monguelfo-Tesido, the freestylers among the winter holidaymakers will find two snow parks with excellently-shaped kickers and a considerable selection of rails and boxes. The "Korer Park" is located near the Brunico/Riscone valley station on the "Korer" piste. Here, beginners and experts will find numerous boxes and a sliding tube. Once a week, the park is also open in the evening and illuminated by floodlights, so that freestylers can also work on new tricks late at night. The second fun park is located between the "Belvedere" and "Plateau" pistes at 2,230 m above sea level. It features an easy kicker line for beginners, a rail line and two large kickers with tables on which advanced aerial acrobats can let off steam.
