Monte Cavallo skiing area

Monte Cavallo is the sun-drenched skiing area near the town of Vipiteno and belongs to the Ortler Skiarena ski carousel.

Not far from Vipiteno there is the Monte Cavallo, the sun terrace of the town. Within a few minutes, a modern gondola lift takes you to the top of the mountain, where you can enjoy skiing on the 17 km of mostly easy and medium slopes. From the centre of Vipiteno you reach the valley station in just 5 minutes. Snow, a sunny position and family friendliness characterize the area.

The skiing area is famous for Italy's longest illuminated and artificial snow covered toboggan run, new, however, are the valley run and the modern Telemix cable car consisting of 6-seater chairs and 8-seater cabins, one of four lift facilities. Monte Cavallo is not only one of 15 South Tyrolean skiing areas belonging to the ski carousel Ortler Skiarena, here also the Alta Valle Isarco ski pass is valid (Racines-Giovo, Monte Cavallo and Ladurns skiing areas).

In this ski region there are several possibilities to stop for a bite to eat. And children can take their first steps on skis, guided by the Vipiteno Ski School, specialised in teaching children. For the little ones (from 3 years of age), there's also a children's park in the Monte Cavallo skiing area, the "KinderYogurtLand". In 2019 the area was voted one of the best skiing areas (up to 20 km of slopes) worldwide by the German ski portal Congratulations!
