One of the 12 ski areas that make up the famous Dolomiti Super Ski area in Italy's UNESCO World Heritage site The Dolomites, Krontplatz is nothing short of breath-taking. In not only its efficient lift system that is effortlessly connects through the world's most modern gondola system this largest ski area of Italy, but also in its scenery. From the summit of Kronplatz (or 'Plan de Corones' if you speak the still surviving ancient language of this area, Ladin), as soon as you step out of that gondola that has whisked you up from one of the villages that surround the base of this mountain, you will be transfixed on the view that unfolds in front of you: 360 degree panoramic of the jagged, imposing peaks of the Dolomites. Tear yourself away and you will be rewarded with wide, open, cruising pistes with plenty of intermediate opportunities alongside beginner slopes to keep the whole family happy. And with these wider pistes come happier children (and parents) whom need not worry about being mowed down…there's room for everyone here! With all this skiing available, you'll be pleased to hear that the appetites have also been taken into consideration. Ancient old hay stores that once provided shelter for animals and war heroes alike in years gone by are now delightfully resorted refuges offering traditional Italian flare and fare. All still with that backdrop of the jaw-dropping Dolomites within eyesight. This truly is a resort in which to escape and forget your ever day stresses and strains of 'normal' life. The locals will certainly make you feel at home.

Cross Country - A sport for gourmets of nature who like a little bit of peace and quiet in their day

Sledding - Find your spot on the hill, take that hard walk up and whizz back down. Sledding is fun for all and certainly tires everyone out

Snowshoeing - You can get off the well-trodden paths with your snowshoes attached to your feet. Take in the scenery and soak up that mountain air on your own mountain adventure

Winter Hiking - Known to be a hiking paradise all year round but the winter boasts spectacular views and of course the winter wonderland feel

Ice skating - Ice skating in the centre of the village is a must. On the natural rink it is a relaxing way to spend the evening before or after supper

Ice Climbing - Climbing up the bizzare ice walls with their jagged peaks it is not an activity for the faint hearted. With full instruction for those brave enough to give it a go it is a worthwhile challenge

Snow tubing - Something for the children here on the mini slope with the fun tyres. If skiing hasn’t tired them out this certainly will
