South Tyrol is a winter sports destination offering enviable variety and glorious high mountain scenery. The region abounds with facilities for children, including mini ski clubs and nursery schools catering for the youngest budding ski aces, where parents who want to enjoy a little ‘me time’ can leave their offspring in the most capable hands. Individual resorts offer a mix of instruction and entertainment for children and youths, single and group instruction, hosted ski tours for adults, and plenty more.
The Corno del Renon/Rittner Horn ski resort
Likewise close to Bolzano/Bozen, this is a ski resort more popular among sun worshipers and those who love to savour the magnificent vistas of the Dolomites and mountains in the west of South Tyrol rather than daredevils. The panoramic view from the easily accessible summit (7,415 ft) is said to be the finest in all Tyrol. A modern gondola lift transports skiers up to an elevation of 6,791 ft/2,070 m, from where the broad, treeless runs are a must for bons viveurs.
