18 September — 2 May
The Val Senales resort is located in the Italian Val Senales (Trentino-Alto Adige, Alto Adige, Merano e Dintorni (Meraner Land) region). There are 42 km of trails for skiing and snowboarding. 11 lifts transport skiers to them. The winter sports complex is located at an altitude between 2011 and 3212 meters above sea level.
The ski area on the Val Senales glacier in South Tyrol, Italy is a real gem among all Italian alpine skiers. In the spring, when slopes with perennial snow shine, reflecting the bright rays of the sun, mountain tanners can combine both pleasures by skiing on crystallized snow. Due to the location at high altitude and directly on the glacier, winter sports enthusiasts can ski on the eternal snow from September to May. Skiing and snowboarding here is exciting for both beginners and experienced skiers. The highlights of the resort are the eight kilometers of Schmuggler slope descending into the valley, Leo Gurschler’s black trail (training and professional slalom and giant slalom trail) and the highest hotel in Europe, Glacier Hotel Grawand.
