Kronplatz (San Vigilio)

Back to South Tyrol

Long, well groomed runs, quiet slopes and access to the largest ski area in the world yet with a surprising lack of lift queues? There’s no mistaking that Kronplatz is one of the best spots in the Dolomites for anyone looking for a truly stress-free ski break.

This is a destination that is all about convenience and relaxation. Indeed, this is an area where skiers can enjoy over 20 gondolas, compared to just five chairlifts! These allow you to reach the heights of the mountain in no time, all the while being sheltered from the snow and wind. The time you save on the lifts, you can enjoy on the fantastic local slopes.

If the 119km on offer in Kronplatz itself are not enough, the area has easy access to the Dolomiti Superski’s incredible 1,200km of piste. With so much skiing on offer, there’s something for skiers of all abilities. Cruise the sunny, gentle blues on the Miara side of the mountain or take on the world cup training runs for a real challenge!

The beauty of the traditional village of San Vigilio, nestled as it is under the spectacular shadow of the mountain peaks, provides a peaceful break from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

The Ski Area

For Beginners – The Miara ski area is a great place to head if you are new to your skis, with plenty of wide, sunny blue runs. Plus, if you don’t feel confident skiing all the way back down to San Vigilio, the region’s many gondolas come in very handy to whisk you back home!

For Intermediates – More confident skiers will hugely enjoy both the local area of Kronplatz as well as the Dolomiti Superski. Plenty of red runs and the option to take on the Sellaronda? What could be better?!

For Experts – World-class athletes train on the Riscone side of the mountain, where you can enjoy some long black runs and great mountain restaurants.

The Resort

With just one après bar, San Vigilio isn’t a base we’d recommend for those looking for a party town, but it is perfect for anyone wanting to simply switch off and enjoy the mountains. And, if you do fancy a more energetic evening out, you can always get the ski bus to nearby Riscone and a taxi back.

In the Kronplatz region, horse-drawn carriage rides, night hikes and torchlit walks allow you to enjoy the tranquility of the mountains from sunrise to sunset and you are sure to feel rejuvinated after a holiday here.

Numerous restaurants in the area provide fantastic regional cuisine, with local specialties such as schlutzkrapfen (ravioli), knödel (dumplings), and kniekiechl (jam fritters) all sure to be a welcome sight for hungry stomachs!
