Ski resorts in South Tyrol – a dream for active wintersports
The winter sports area Gitschberg Jochtal around und the mountain Gitsch – as the locals call the beautiful peak – is located at about 1,400 to 2,500 m above the villages Meransen and Valles. Directly on the outskirts of the town, the lifts offer the best start to an eventful week in the snow. In addition to a narrow forest run, the Gitschberg is characterized by broad, easy to difficult ski slopes, offering enough space and diversion for everyone. Even in the high season there are very few waiting periods at the lifts.
Since the winter season 2011/12 the two skiing areas Gitschberg and Jochtal are connected through a new cable car. So you can change immediately from one skiing pleasure to the next one. Both together have 44 km of ski slopes.
The skiing area offers plenty of skiing fun for experts and beginners. The ride on the chair lift ends directly underneath the peak cross. The panoramic view of more than 500 mountain peaks, which are distributed throughout half of Southern Tyrol, the Dolomites, the Zillertal, Stubaier and Ötztal Alps, will surely remain unforgettable.
