Ice Skating in Prato allo Stelvio
Skating in the Ortler Area
In the sports zone of Prato allo Stelvio/Prad an Stilfserjoch there’s an artificial ice lake with skate hire facilities ready to serve ice-skating princesses and future ice-hockey champions. Other rinks are located in Tarces/Tartsch near Malles/Mals.
The main attraction for skaters and other nature lovers is the frozen lake at Resia/Reschen, about half an hour from Prato allo Stelvio. The 6 km-long and 1 km-wide Resia Lake at the three-country border to Austria and Switzerland is a popular destination for the international ice speed skating scene. In fact, the Dutch week of the "Alternative Tour of the Eleven Cities" takes place every year at the end of January on the open-air ice rink at Resia Lake – a speed skating marathon in which the participants have to master a distance of 200 km every day.
Ice skates can be rented on-site at Resia Lake.
