Skiing in The Dolomites
Carezza Ski - King of the Dolomites
The skiing area Carezza Ski, only 30 minutes from our hotel, offers several downhill slopes for everyone. Children and adults will enjoy this sunny skiing-area with a striking panoramic view. Two skiing schools offer courses, but experienced skiers will also enjoy the Carezza region, which offers 40 kilometres of ski runs.
It is hard to describe the gorgeous scenery; you must experience it yourself.
For sun lovers Carezza is the secret meeting place: this ski area is with an average of 8 sun hours a day for each winter day one of the sunniest ski areas of South Tyrol.
Ideal for family winter excursions in the snow: skiing, children’s park, coasts: everything is central located and reachable by foot. What about having together a good meal in a ski hut? You won’t get bored with this wide slopes-network, many hiking trails, coasts, the new snow park Christomannos and an eventful evening program with night-skiing and night-snow tubing.
40 minutes from Tiers by bus or car you can reach "Seiser Alm", Europe largest alpine pasture with 60 km well prepared slopes for skiing, snowboarding and cross country skiing.
Not only its endless vistas and breathtaking scenery, its sunny and sheltered slopes make the Alpe di Siusi a holiday spot par excellence for winter sport enthusiasts of every age and kind. It is a paragon of gentle tourism, and is the preferred venue of active vacationers in search of a cozy atmosphere, scenic beauty, and authentic surroundings.
But with 60 km of slopes, daredevils and "hot dogs" will likewise find it the perfect place for their exploits, both on the slopes and off. The high-tech aerial lifts and the well-groomed slopes (with all degrees of difficulty, from easy to challenging) connect the entire high-altitude plateau – including the meeting places of the legendary Schlern witches.
Snowboarders appreciate the broad downhill slopes and the snowboard park. But the Alpe di Siusi also has a wide variety of special offers for children (including price discounts, the Ski Fun Park, and hosted activities), and so is very well-suited for families, too.
40 minutes from Tiers by bus or car you reach "Fassatal". 9 different skiing areas, 4 snowparks, 220 km slopes, 86 lift and cable car facilities offer an excellent infrastructure to explore this spectacular skiing - region.
The "Sellaronda" is the most famous ski - roundtour in the Dolomites.
The Sellaronda is the ski circuit around the Sella group.
The Sella lies between the four Ladin valleys of Badia, Gherdëina, Fascia, and Fodom and is divided between the provinces of South Tyrol, Trentino and Belluno. It can be driven around by car crossing the Campolongo Pass, Pordoi Pass, Sella Pass, and Gardena Pass. In winter it is possible to ski around the entire massif by using the Sellaronda ski lift carousel. Also each winter the alpine touring ski Sellaronda Skimarathon race is held, which leads around the entire Sella and covers 42 km of mountain trails. The same trails can be mastered by Mountain bike during the summer.
