28 November — 18 April
The Plan de Corones (Kronplatz) ski resort is located in the tourist area of the town of Plan de Corones (Italy, Trentino-Alto Adige, Alto Adige). For skiing and snowboarding, the resort offers 119 km of slopes, to which 33 ski lifts lead. The winter sports complex is located between 973 and 2.275 meters above sea level.
The tracks of the Kronplatz are very diverse, offering panoramic views of 360 degrees. Undoubtedly, this resort meets all the needs of skiers. In that part of Val Pusteria, which is at a sufficient height, the ski season is extremely long and the slopes are really perfect, including the hardest “black” ones. From any slope, the skiers will take their breath away from the greatness of the Dolomites surrounding the resort from all sides. You can also admire the landscape while skiing at night along the well-lit trails Riscone, San Vigilio, Terento, Guggenberg.
Those who want to combine physical pleasure with culture in this German-Italian-Ladin melting pot of atmospheres and cuisines will find an architectural gem at the top of the Plan de Corones: this is the Messner mountain museum MMM Corones, which was perfectly integrated into the mountainous terrain by the architect Zaha Hadid commissioned by the legendary climber Reinhold Messner. Thus, the Plan de Corones complex is one of the few selected ski resorts that perfectly combine modern architecture, national traditions and skiing of the highest level. In 2017, the first stage of the World Cup competition took place here, which also gave impetus to the further development of the resorts of this region.

One of the most interesting trails is the Sylvester trail, down to the descent into the valley.

The Seewiese track is intended for competitions between members of the ski clubs.
