The Pass Resia ski area with the Belpiano and St. Valenin ski areas make the hearts of winter sports enthusiasts beat faster: modern lifts and perfectly prepared slopes are at your disposal and guarantee perfect snow conditions until the end of April. The ski areas offer exceptional opportunities for skiers and snowboarders - the perfect conditions for your next winter holiday in South Tyrol.

Cross-country skiing is one of the most rewarding and tiring recreational activities to enjoy in the fresh air of our beautiful valley. 45 kilometers of cross-country ski runs on the high plateau around Lake Resia and Lake St. Valentin, through forests and sunny snow-covered meadows. The cross-country ski run continues over the pass Resia to Nauders on the Austrian side.

For those looking for a slope at an altitude of over 1900 meters, we recommend the always (in winter) snow-covered 15 km cross-country ski slope at the foot of the Palla Bianca, which is located in Vallelunga a side valley. It crosses unspoilt nature, forests, meadows and alpine pastures. The Nordic Ski Centre in Slingia, is instead the meeting point of the international cross-country skiing scene and can also be reached after a short drive.

Experience nature far away from the ski slopes, it is a very special feeling that will make you relax and forget about all the problems. Breathe in the sparkling air, touch the fresh snow, see the numerous three-thousand-meters peaks and a steel-blue sky in the background. The fresh snow that slides under the skis awaits you and you will enjoy the feeling of freedom immersed in the adventure of the Upper Venosta Valley. In the middle of the mountains of Pass Resia, the wonderful ski tours in the Roia valley and Vallelunga invite you to practice ski mountaineering.

Snow kiting on Lake Resia

Lake Resia has recently become one of the landmarks in the international snow kiting scene. Thanks to its altitude, Lake Resia and the small Lake of St. Valentin are completely frozen for a long time. Once the kite has ta ken the famous Venosta wind, you can reach speeds of up to 100 km/h! A course for beginners is a must for all adrenalin hungry!
