The Watles ski area in the sunny Upper Venosta Valley provides skiers with excellent infrastructure, groomed slopes and huts with sun terraces. The region also offers winter walking trails and ski touring in the Ötztal Alps, the Ortler region and in the Stelvio National Park, as well as ice skating rinks, sledging runs and romantic horse-drawn carriage rides through the forests.

In the Upper Venosta Valley winter hikers and snowshoers will find an almost endless network of well-marked trails and solitary paths with scenic views of South Tyrol’s three-thousanders. The toboggan run on the Watles provides two-railed fun, and skaters of all ages will enjoy a turn on the region’s natural skating rinks. The Upper Venosta Valley also provides countless opportunities for great ski touring in Stelvio Pass National Park, the Ortler Group, the Sesvenna mountain range, and the Ötztal Alps.

Fans of Nordic ski sport will enjoy the Center for Cross-Country Skiing and Biathlon: sight of numerous international competitions.
