Kronplatz slopes: name change

Kronplatz - Pland de Corones

Kronplatz

With the 2012/13 winter season coming up, some ski runs on the eastern side of Mount Kronplatz are to receive a brand-new name: slope no. 21 will now be called Gassl, while slope no. 23 will from now on be known as World Record Piste, owing to a spectacular world record achieved in 2011 when a team of 16 athletes skied a distance of 1.67 million metres of difference in altitude in 24 hours. The slope is 1650 m long, with 506 m of difference in altitude (top: 1680 m; bottom: 1174 m).

NEW SLOPE SECTION AT KRONPLATZ – ALTERNATIVE SLOPE RIED FREISELBERG

Ried, the slope that takes you all the way to the train platform in Perca-Percha, will soon be extended to include a new section. Named after its location, Freiselberg, the additional track will be 680 m long and 15 m wide on average. With an average gradient of 16,7%, it will be categorised as blue, making it an easy run ideal for families and a great alternative to the steeper rest of the Ried slope. Roll on the winter season!

The New Water center Dòlaondes in Canazei

Go with the waves. Dòlaondes. The name of the new water center “Dòlaondes” in Canazei (from the Ladin “Go with the waves”), refers to the movement of water. It reminds of the link between this precious resource and the unspoilt sites of the Val di Fassa. In the heart of the Dolomites, once submerged by the primordial sea, a new well-being temple rises, in which water is the absolute protagonist, thanks to the project  promoted by SITC (Società Incremento Turistico Canazei) and designed by architect Ralf Dejaco from Bressanone.
