What characterises San Candido in the Alta Pusteria Valley/Hochpustertal, in the region of the Tre Cime di Lavaredo in winter? It’s a large ski area, where you can ski at will or spend wonderful days simply hiking.
The downhill ski slopes are linked with one another at Croda Rossa/Rotwand, Monte Elmo/Helm and Orte del Toro/Stiergarten, as well as at the Passo Monte Croce di Comelico/Kreuzbergpass and the Comelico.

The Alta Pusteria Valley ski area is ideally suited for all levels with ski runs ranging from blue to red and black. With a gradient of up to 71%, the “Holzriese” slope on the Croda Rossa is South Tyrol’s steepest slope. It also marks the border to the Province of Belluno.
The Monte Baranci/Haunold ski area, only a few minutes walk from the town centre of San Candido, is ideal for families and for all who are new at this sport.

There are two ski schools in San Candido. Highly competent, professional skiing instructors offer classes for groups or individuals.
More experienced skiers choose the slopes at Mount Elmo. From Versciaco/Vierschach, which is 3 kilometres away, there is a gondola lift which takes you to the slopes of the Three Peaks skiing area in the Dolomites.
Apart from the ski buses, the Alta Pusteria Valley offers another particularly comfortable means of transportation: the train. Skiers can board the train in San Candido to reach the railway station of Perca/Percha only 25 minutes later. From there, gondola lifts take you into the heart of the skiing area of Plan de Corones/Kronplatz.
With your complimentary HOLIDAYPASS, which you will receive upon arrival at the Orso Grigio Boutique & Gourmet Hotel, you will be able to use all ski buses and public means of transportation in South Tyrol.
