Kronplatz - Plan De Corones
ski resort information
Kronplatz (Plan de Corones) the number one skiing mountain in South Tyrol.
The Kronplatz mountain, with its 2,275 meters high summit and its beloved bald head, is visible from every vantage point in the valley. Pure and simple, Kronplatz is one of the major skiing areas in South Tyrol. In the valley and on the slopes you will find fun, a great atmosphere, traditional mountain huts, regional delicacies and relaxing après-ski. The Kronplatz skiing region can offer more than 100 km of excellently prepared slopes. From three sides, 31 modern lifts lead up onto the wide, generally tree-free and gently sloping top of this panoramic mountain.
The skiing area of Kronplatz has the most modern and comfortable lifts. Thanks to their large carrying capacity of more than 6,390 people per hour the lifts are not crowded.
The slopes are able to satisfy even the most demanding of skiers. State-of-the-art compact snow machines and high-performance ski-slope maintenance equipment, along with an army of around 300 staff, ensure optimum slope conditions at all times. From Winter 06/07 there is a new direct connection ("Piculin lift) to the Alta Badia and Sella Runde skiing region. Those of you who wish to practice cross country skiing can follow the routes that are used in the World Cup events in Antholz and Gsieser Tal Valley.
Best for boarders
Wide open pistes, slopes for all levels of boarder and a half-pipe built to full FIS standards on the Plateau piste, make sure that there is something for everyone. Kronplatz is a real talent factory: Thomas Brugger from Olang won the silver medal in the men’s giant slalom at the 1998 Olympics in Nagano, Gabriel Palfrader from Marebbe, runner-up in the Juniors World Cup, is now following in his footsteps, and Walter Feichter came in eighth place in the men’s giant slalom
at the Olympic Games in Salt Lake City.
Try out a night shift. Mountains in flames! Night skiing at floodlight is absolutely awesome! So don’t hesitate and don’t balk on cold nights, when lights sparkle with intensified brilliance. Then you will find a hut surrounded with sparkling stars and twinkling lamps….
That’s how beautiful a night shift in Terenten can be. The price is included in your ski pass.
There is no extra charge. Tuesdays and Thursdays 20:00 - 22:00.
After a long rewarding day of skiing, it’s time for some après-ski. In and around the valley stations of the Kronplatz ski area there is a wide choice of bars, pubs and clubs with a great party atmosphere where everyone stops before returning to the hotel, inn or apartment for a relaxing spa treatment or for dinner.
South of the sports facilities in Reischach there is the newly built Cron4 with four different indoor pools and one outdoor pool. The new wellness area provides a variety of facilities with its saunas and steam baths as well as wellness showers, diving and Kneipp pools.
And last but not least enjoy the atmosphere of the open show kitchen and watch the cooks preparing your delicious meal.
Kronplatz lies in the sunny south, which can be smelled and tasted too!
It smells of fresh cappuccino, fried bacon, spicy mushrooms and has the delicate nose of a fine wine. On Kronplatz cheese is not the only thing that melts on top of traditional Schlutzkrapfen ravioli, it’s much more than that. Here influences from the hearty South Tyrolean cuisine and sumptuous Ladin fare melt together with light Mediterranean-style cooking. Let yourself be captivated by the most delicious palate-teasing dishes prepared by both gourmet cooks and old farming families. Forget about your weight and satisfy your palate without feeling guilty! This is your holiday, not a slimming week! Each day should become a culinary “sun-day”!
