Drei Zinnen

Back to South Tyrol

Drei Zinnen (aka Three Peaks Dolomites) benefits from a unique position on the Italian Austrian border.

The resort encapsulates a collection of smaller villages, so you can choose the perfect base for your ski holiday. From Sesto, a classic ski-in, ski-out village with easy access to intermediate slopes, to San Candido, a more lively town with a range of options off the slopes.

The ski area is spread across five mountains, with access to 110km of piste. Ski buses are readily available to bring you between areas, allowing easy access to some exceptional skiing. We particularly enjoy the opportunity this gives you to spend a day or two exploring each area.  What’s more, the snowmaking facilities here are second to none – this is one resort where you won’t have to be obsessively checking the snow forecasts in the build up to your holiday!

If the 110km of the local area isn’t enough for you, you can also hop on the snow train over to Kronplatz, where an extra 119km await you.
