Merano 2000 skiing area

The Merano 2000 skiing area is located above the charming city of Merano and belongs to the ski carousel Ortler Skiarena.

Above Merano, there is a sunny high plateau where the Merano 2000 skiing area with the new Merano 2000 Snow Park at the Oswald slope is located. The family resort offers day and half day tickets for families at a reduced price, and children up to the age of 8 years use the lift facilities for free. Since December 2011 there’s a new children’s playground, the Outdoor Kids Camp, at the mountain station of the Merano 2000 cable car. This area on 2,000 m asl is reserved for the little ones and offers a Mini Ski Club, children’s ski courses, a ski kindergarten and moving walkways.

Merano 2000 features 40 km of ski slopes and modern lift facilities, and it is one of 15 South Tyrolean skiing areas belonging to the ski carousel Ortler Skiarena. Merano 2000 offers also a particular toboggan run, the Alpin Bob, a year-round Alpine coaster that is an experience for the whole family. This area is ideal for a combination of winter and spa holidays, thanks to the Thermal Baths of Merano (ticket “Ski and Thermal Baths”). A free ski bus takes you to the lower terminus of the cable car. The skiing area is located only a stone’s throw from the village of Avelengo, the home of the Haflinger horses - and a horse ride in the snow-covered landscape is an absolute must-do!
