Climate in winter

Snow-covered landscape, sunshine from the deep blue winter sky… that’s South Tyrol in winter.

Come and experience the sunny side of the Alps in winter. Snow falls regularly in the province of South Tyrol, but good weather and sunshine prevails. The reason for this constellation is the main Alpine divide and further mountain chains, paring South Tyrol from too heavy precipitations. Of course also in winter, there are regional differences.

The amount of snow in the valley basins round Bolzano and the Bassa Atesina for example are rather meagre. But the temperatures around zero make Lake Caldaro freeze, enabling you to experience ice skating. Larger amounts of snow fall in higher located areas such as the Val Venosta, Valgardena and Val Pusteria, ideal for skiing. In those areas, winter season lasts longer than in the south of South Tyrol. The temperatures below make you get an overview on the lowest and highest temperatures of various areas.
