Vipiteno in the Italian Alps is a winter paradise for skiers of all levels, and is one of the “Borghi più Belli d’Italia,” the association grouping Italy’s most beautiful towns.

Winter will soon be declared open in Vipiteno 

Winter in Vipiteno is just around the corner and will begin on 24 November with the opening of the Christmas Market, one of the original five markets in Italy’s South Tyrol. Then, on 7 December the ski season is scheduled to start in the Monte Cavallo-Rosskopf area, with skiing in nearby Ladurns available from 8 December.

Skiing and tobogganing at Monte Cavallo-Rosskopf 

At Monte Cavallo-Rosskopf there are slopes for all levels, from the well-equipped Kinderland, with snow games for the little ones, to the numerous blue and red slopes suitable for a wide range of skiers. The jewel in the area’s crown is the Monte Cavallo cable car, which starts on the northern outskirts of the town of Sterzing and goes to 970 metres asl where the ski rental shop is located, and on to the heart of the ski area at 1,862 metres. The Monte Cavallo toboggan run breaks records as the longest snow-covered and illuminated toboggan run in Italy. At the rental shop at the cable car departure point visitors can find all the equipment they need for tobogganing.

The Monte Cavallo, Ladburns and Racines lift pass

The ancient spa town of Colle Isarco offers a ski area with 18 kilometres of slopes. The fast and comfortable cable cars serve an area with a total vertical drop of 900 metres, and there is also a children's area. The Valle Isarco ski pass allows visitors to ski with a single ski pass on the slopes of Monte Cavallo, Ladurns and also in the Racines area.

In Sterzing, at an altitude of 1,500 metres, there are 25 kilometres of slopes for skating or classic technique skiing, and the cross-country ski slopes have a large parking area and a centre with rentals. Val di Vizze is also a paradise for those who are looking for quiet and picturesque places for family winter excursions on the groomed trails that run alongside the cross-country slopes.
