Once the unique mountain landscape of the Dolomites is covered in a charming white coat, the numerous ski resorts in South Tyrol await you for skiing under the sun. Hence: off you go to the slopes!

Skiing for pleasure-lovers
South Tyrol is known and loved for the many hours of sunshine, also in winter. The sun makes skiing in South Tyrol not only more comfortable, but also underlines the beauty of the imposing Dolomite peaks. From the family-friendly Seiser Alm/Alpe di Siusi ski resort to Plose, the Eldorado for downhill slopes: there is something for everyone. The "Dolomiti Superski" ski carousel is the biggest of its kind worldwide! It connects the most varied ski resorts. South Tyrol sets new standards with this regard. All of the ski resorts are accessible with a single ski pass – the Dolomiti Superski pass.

Overview of the best ski resorts in the surroundings of the Granpanorama Hotel StephansHof:

The Plose, with the longest downhill ski run of South Tyrol
The Plose, the main mountain of the city of Bressanone, offers a wonderful view of Peitlerkofel Mountain and the Peaks of the Geisler/Odle, and more than 40 km of slopes. Plose impresses skiers with the Trametsch slope, the longest valley slope in South Tyrol with 9 km of length, which is a challenge also for experienced skiers. Plose is an insider's tip amongst the ski resorts in South Tyrol, and in the biggest ski carousel in the world, namely Dolomiti Superski.

Gardena - the most famous ski area in the Dolomites
The Gröden/Val Gardena ski resort in South Tyrol is the prestige ski resort. In addition to the many top athletes from South Tyrol, who undertook their first training here, this ski resort is known worldwide for being the venue of the yearly World Cup Race. The international ski scene meets here for the yearly venue.

Ideal for families: Seiser Alm/Alpe di Siusi
Seiser Alm/Alpe di Siusi offers more than 60 km of slopes of all levels of difficulty. Hence, fun for young and old. The true strength of the ski area with the vast alpine pasture is however its focus on families. In the 2011/2012 winter season, the ski resort was listed amongst the three most family-friendly ski resorts in the Alps by ADAC, and is therefore the perfect destination for ski beginners and families.

The unique ski carousel Sella Ronda
The Sella Ronda ski carousel is unique in its way worldwide. It leads across four Dolomite passes and through 4 different Dolomite ski resorts in South Tyrol, in the Trentino and Belluno (Gröden/Val Gardena, Gadertal/Val Badia, Arabba and Val di Fassa). The Sella Ronda round tour can be accessed from each ski resort, and this legendary round tour of the Sella Mountain, can be done clockwise or counter-clockwise (orange or green markings). The Sella Ronda features a total of 23 km of slopes amidst the World Heritage Site Dolomites, and is rather challenging for skiers. Definitely not to be recommended for beginners, but it is always a highlight of a ski vacation in South Tyrol for advanced skiers. An experience, that you will never forget!
