New pleasure skiing in Upper Pusteria
Starting from your next winter holiday at Dobbiaco, there will be even more fun and variety on the runs of the Sesto Dolomites. The two ski areas of Monte Elmo and Croda Rossa will be joined in the winter season 2014/15 and the direct connection between the Sesto Dolomites and the runs on Plan de Corones will be competed, thanks to the construction of the railway station at Versciaco. So let this be the new motto for winter holidays at the Ariston in Dobbiaco: “Enjoy more than 200 kilometres of perfectly prepared runs!”
Monte Elmo – Croda Rossa ski connection
No car and no stress… Our guests at the Ariston Residence in Dobbiaco can now also take the train to reach Monte Elmo, the skiing mountain in Upper Pusteria, in just a short time. And that’s not all: from the base station at Versciaco you can now reach, always on skis, the family favourite ski area of Croda Rossa at Sesto.
To make the connection, two ultra-modern eight-person cable cars have been completed: the “Tre Cime” cable car starts from the base station of Signaue at Sesto and can comfortably carry about 2,000 people per hour to 2,032 metres a.s.l. The “Orto del Toro” cable car is new too, starting just above the Pendio Monte Elmo hut and ending at the top station of the “Tre Cime” system.
With these highly modern systems, the offer of runs on the Sesto Dolomites has been generously extended. The two new runs, “Tre Cime” and “Orto del Toro”, are suitable for a wide skiing public and offer fun on skis combined with spectacular views of the Dolomites.
Upper Pusteria Ski Express and MMM Corones
If all this is not enough, you can take the Upper Pusteria Ski Express to Brunico and reach the ski slopes of Plan De Corones quickly and without delay. The sixth and last Messner Mountain Museum will be inaugurated in autumn 2014 on the top of Plan de Corones. The MMM Corones has been designed by the internationally famous architect Zaha Hadid, completely underground and dedicated to the theme “Rock and the life of climbers”.
