Skiing in the Stelvio National Park
The ski resorts of Sulden and Trafoi
Amidst the high Ortler Cevedale Mountains lies the Sulden/Solda ski area in the Stelvio National Park. With more than 40 km of varied types of slopes and excellent snow coverage, the challenging conditions in Sulden attract many winter sports enthusiasts as well as families, skiers and snowboarders. Meanwhile, at the Yeti Ski Kindergarten, the junior set can learn the basics of the most popular winter sports. The high-altitude fun park beneath the imposing 3,000 m summits has special facilities for halfpipe and boardercross athletes. Winter holidaymakers can reach the ski area in just a few minutes using the state-of-the-art cable car system in the Alps. The winter sports paradise of Sulden is open between November to early May.
Dedicated to the world of ice and glaciers, the underground Ortles Messner Mountain Museum in Sulden was opened in 2004.
Close to the village of Stilfs/Stelvio lies the idyllic village of Trafoi, a family ski-paradise where tranquillity and relaxation are combined with fun and recreation. Located in the heart of the Stelvio National Park, Trafoi offers an unparalleled panoramic view of the Ortler Massif, away from the hustle and bustle of the large ski areas. Here, families and seasoned holidaymakers are surrounded by an unspoilt landscape, which is best explored on foot or snowshoes.
