The Dolomite Region: The Alpine World of the 3 Peaks
Discover the captivating mountain panorama.
1 February 2021
Skiing is a wintertime form of relaxation for many. This season, the tradition may be a little different, but we can still dream of a holiday away from the pandemic: mountains for all levels, captivating panoramas and a monumental alpine world await in the Dolomite region waiting to be discovered athletically.
The 3 Peaks Nature Park is an award-winning ski area in winter and a dream for hiking in summer. Alpinists from all over the world demonstrate their skills on the vertical walls of this mountain group. In addition to nature, the towns of Sesto, San Candido, Dobbiaco, Villabassa and Braies will delight you with their wealth of experiences.
Sunny moments of happiness
Five connected mountains and over 115 kilometres of pistes can be explored here on skis. The variety of routes, the best grooming and the snow guarantee ensure the awards of skiresort.com for the highest score in all areas. At the Kreuzberg Pass, the threshold between the German and Italian cultural areas, the once best ski racer in the world, Marc Girardelli from Vorarlberg, prepared his successes. Since then, the wide slopes bear his name. Which makes them even more beautiful: In South Tyrol, the sun shines 300 days a year. So if you are looking for winter happiness, you will most likely find it here. Skiing has been proven to be one of the sports with the most moments of happiness.
The practice slopes for the minis are directly accessible from Sesto, San Candido, Dobbiaco and Braies. Should the ski boot ever pinch, then two toboggan runs with lift connection offer absolute fun on the curves. Twice a week there is night tobogganing.
Everything at short distance
The main ski area can be quickly reached by ski shuttle and trains from every village in the region, and with the Ski Pustertal Express you can reach Plan de Corones in just 30 minutes. The conclusion: The 3 Peaks Dolomites offer a compact alpine world, where nature and skiing experience meet urbanity.
