The Ski Area of Plan de Corones
Exciting winter holidays in Hotel Post in Valdaora/Olang
At an altitude of 2,275 metres a.s.l., Plan de Corones in Valdaora is South Tyrol’s No.1 skiing mountain and considered one of the most modern skiing areas in Italy. Plan de Corones is just a few minutes from the Hotel Post by car, and it welcomes visitors with 31 lift facilities, a gondola cableway with free Wi-Fi, and a total of 116 km of skiing slopes. Thus, despite the amount of skiers, there are no queues on the slopes or waiting times at the facilities.
With its diversified and well prepared slopes, Plan de Corones (as part of the bigger Dolomiti Superski) offers adventures on the slopes for all abilities, levels, and expectations, including the 6.5-km-long downhill run down to Valdaora – a true challenge for real skiing enthusiasts (1,170 meters difference in height). All together, there are five spectacular downhill runs into the valley basin (to Valdaora, Riscone/Reischach, San Vigilio/St. Vigil, and Casola/Gassl), and they are open till mid-March.
Experienced skiers will find five black slopes, the "Black Five", as they are known locally. A particular challenge is the thrilling Piculin slope, which has been described by the leading journal Skiresort.de as the “best black piste ever”. The Plan de Corones adventure mountain also boasts the largest snow park for snowboarders and freeriders in South Tyrol, with many different kickers and rails. In addition, it hosts a renowned children's park and award-winning ski schools.
From the Hotel Post Tolderhof to skiing fun on the Sellaronda
The Sellaronda is the largest ski circuit in South Tyrol! Starting right in front of the Hotel Post Tolderhof, the Ski-Express takes guests quickly and safely to the most famous super-circuit in the Dolomites. The ski-bus departs every 20 min from the Piculin cableway valley station to Sompunt in Alta Badia. From there it continues to Corvara, one of the four stations on the Sellaronda ski circuit.
The spectacular 40 km ski trip in the Dolomites on the Sella Massif leads across four Dolomitic passes. The Sellaronda is connected by a number of ski lifts and can be completed in just one day. This highly scenic ski circuit passes across the snowy slopes at the foot of the Dolomites, through forests and snow-covered terrain. Once you have arrived at one of the four valleys around the mountain, the Sellaronda presents no particular difficulties and all the localities en route are connected by ski lifts.
The Val Pusteria/Pustertal Valley Ski-Express
The new Val Pusteria Valley Ski-Express doesn’t just take our guests to the Sellaronda. Also on other days you can leave the car in the garage since the Ski-Express also links up the Plan de Corones ski area with the Dolomites of Sesto/Sexten and other ski areas of the Dolomiti Superski Association.
We felt at home from the first day and the food was excellent.“
