Insights and outlooks
Winter action at the hotel at Plan de Corones/Kronplatz on the slopes
The fun in the snow at our ski hotel in South Tyrol on the slopes goes far beyond skiing and snowboarding. How about a long winter hike with our hiking guides, Otto and Paolo? They can tell you exciting facts about the Dolomites and St. Vigil and answer (almost) every question. A ski tour to one of the surrounding peaks followed by a rapid descent is also a unique experience. Speaking of rapid descents: does night tobogganing on the Cianross slope right next to the Excelsior sound more appealing? The options are endless at the hotel at Plan de Corones/Kronplatz, right on the slopes.
