Monte Cavallo Skiing Area

Mt. Cavallo, the local mountain of Vipiteno in the Upper Valle Isarco, is known for its sunny position and the family friendliness

Not far from Vipiteno Mt. Cavallo rises, the sun terrace of the town in the Upper Valle Isarco. From the town centre, you can reach the valley station in a 5-minutes walk. There, the new 10-seater gondola lift with "Diamond EVO" premium gondolas starts, which has been newly built in 2022, together with the valley station and the mountain station. They are inaugurated right in time for the start of the winter. On the top of the mountain you can enjoy skiing on 22.5 km of slopes.

Most of the ski slopes are medium difficult. The longest downhill run is the new 5.5 km long valley run, the most difficult one is the 1 km long training slope. The area is really family-friendy: Children can take their first steps on skis guided by the Vipiteno Ski School, specialised in teaching kids and awarded the quality seal in gold. A beginners' area and the ski kindergarten at the new "CAMP 2" are available. The ski huts along the slopes - including the Stern and Enzian Huts - invite to a rest.

The longest illuminated and artificial snow covered toboggan run in Italy promises lots of fun. It is 10 km long and takes you through an impressive forest landscape to the valley station by overcoming a difference in altitude over 900 metres. If you are looking for a special experience, you may head down to the valley with a headlamp - on Fridays, the toboggan run stays illuminated till midnight. Thanks to the proximity to the town, a ski day followed by a visit to the "Bell Christmas of Vipiteno Sterzing" is possible during the Advent period. The Ortler Skiarena Pass as well as the Alta Valle Isarco Ski Pass - for three skiing areas - are valid here.
