Watles skiing area

Watles is a family-friendly and varied skiing area in the Ortler Skiarena, close to Malles/Burgusio in Val Venosta.

In the Watles skiing area above Malles/Burgusio everyone maintains the overview. Modern lift facilities, no queuing, a great view on the surrounding mountain peaks of the Ortles Alps as well as numerous ski lodges and restaurants - these are the characteristics of the skiing area.
