on the Plose
Winter & snowshoing
The winter landscape around Brixen with the Plose is unique. Leave once quietly your skis in our ski hotel in the Dolomites and go on a winter hiking tour. A large network of seductively quiet paths – a total of 12 km – lies over the whole region and takes you through the white splendor. For many routes good mountain boots are enough – and if you want to climb up a bit higher or enjoy the alpine winter also off the marked trails, snowshoes are the best option. Two beautiful tours lead from the Plose mountain station to the picturesque Rossalm (2.5 km) or on the winter hiking trail of the ski huts, going to the huts around the Plose massif. Imposing panorama view over the Eisack valley to the white shining Dolomites is guaranteed!
A lot of slopes for super
Tobogganing fun in the Eisack valley
No winter holiday in South Tyrol without turbulent tobogganing! If you have used the slopes on the Plose and in other ski areas extensively, you can make a creative break from skiing and sway down one of our natural toboggan runs. In the Brixen region, there are toboggan runs for every taste: from the only downhill forest path for a lively sleigh ride with the family, up to the fast run, where fast reactions are important. In addition to popular routes such as the toboggan run Rossalm-Kreuztal or the nature trail Ackerboden / St. Leonhard, we would especially like to recommend the RudiRun slope from the Kreuztal to St. Andrä. It is 10 km long and takes you to about 1000 m from the heights of the Plose back to our ski hotel in the Dolomites. If you do not have your own toboggan, you can rent a fast-running one at the starting point and return it to your destination.
Friday Night Fever
Romance guarantee in winter holiday
Attention: The here described Plose nights will not take place during winter 2022/2023!
Do you feel like night-time romance under the wintery firmament? From early January to mid-March, the Plose cable car runs until 11 pm on Fridays. Your skiing holiday in the Dolomites gets a surprising twist when you go to the Plose in the evening and hike in a homely alpenglow to a rustic alpine hut, where you can spend pleasant moments with Eisack valley specialties, folk music and a great atmosphere. Then you return back, sledding. There are extra lanterns for sleds that can be borrowed together, making your nightlife a memorable event.

Advent & Christmas markets
You can spend your winter holidays in South Tyrol in the Advent season and experience how the magical charm of the Christmas season lays down on the snowy Eisack valley. Mulled wine, almond pastries and other Christmas treats once again taste so well when you combine them with a snowshoeing trip on the Plose, a hike of the mountain huts or a ski trip. Many of our towns and villages have festive Christmas markets with all the charm of South Tyrol, such as Klausen, Mühlbach and Gossensaß. A splendid Christmas market is held every year in Brixen in the wonderful atmosphere of the Cathedral square. In the episcopal residence (Hofburg), not only the magnificent Nativity Museum has opened, but also top-class Christmas productions are performed there. And also the Christmas markets in Bozen, Meran, Sterzing and Bruneck are always worth a visit during a skiing holiday in the Dolomites!
Ice Arena Bressanone
The Ice rink in Bressanone was opened in 1985. Since then, it has been a popular meeting place for young and old ice-skating enthusiasts as well as a training facility for the Bressanone ice sports clubs HC Falcons (ice hockey) and WSV Bressanone (figure skating and curling).
The Italian national team, the KHL team of HC Vityaz (Russia) and the DEL team Schwenningen Wild Wings (Germany) have already had training camps in the Ice Arena in Bressanone. Furthermore, every year several Austrian and German hockey teams use the facility to prepare for their championships with short training camps in October and November.
The ice rink opens its gates at the beginning of November and awaits you Saturdays and Sundays from 2:00 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. throughout the winter.
Cross-country skiing at its finest
Skiing holiday in the Dolomites
In the Plose / Brixen ski area, you can not only marvelously drive down the slope through the powder snow – here you will also find four well-groomed cross-country ski runs with a total length of 23.5 km. Altogether you will find in the Eisack valley 25 cross-country ski circuits with a total length of 240 km. From our ski hotel in the Dolomites you are in the immediate vicinity at the starting point. If you have explored our Plose during cross-country skiing, you can go to the Puez-Geisler Natural Park or the Gader valley. Dreamlike experiences in the quiet mountain world promise, for example, the snow-sure round route on the Lüsner-Rodenecker Alm or the Palmschoss-Würzjoch.
