At this altitude time seems to stand still: when you glide down the white snow tapestry on your skis, you don’t hear anything else apart from the wind whistling through the trees.
Just let go and dream.
In wintertime the valley’s picturesque side is revealed; snow is guaranteed but you won’t find mass tourism. The 25 different and well-groomed ski slopes offer various levels of difficulty. Beginners as well as advanced and professional skiers find their perfect ski slope with amazing views of the Dolomites and the Stelvio/Stilfserjoch National Park. The highest chairlift takes you up to an altitude of 2,625 metres above sea level and brings you to the longest piste: a 5km of downhill slope with a difference in altitude of 1,100 metres. No wonder that the valley is home to many famous and international ski stars like Dominik Paris, who you can try to beat in a race once a year.
You don’t own any skiing equipment? No problem. Below our restaurant, next to the ski kindergarten you find one, of the three ski rental shops of the Schwemmalm ski resort. Whether carving skis, it is your choice! From the second day on, you already get 20% discount on your rental. A saving that makes your holiday more carefree. How to make use of this offer: take the chairlift to reach the ski rental shop at the Breiteben mountain station, to get your equipment. If you prefer taking the cable car over the following days you have the possibility of leaving your ski equipment in the ski-deposit of the valley station in Pracupola/Kuppelwies.
The ski and snowboard school with its neighbouring ski kindergarten are situated below our Breiteben restaurant. There you can find the perfect contact person to book a ski lesson for your children, to improve your own skills or simply to get some insider tips and likewise, the professionally trained instructor team always has your safety in mind on the slopes. The “Schwemmalm” ski school offers qualified ski instruction, individually or in groups, for children and adults at regular intervals.
Skiing holidays should also be an unforgettable experience for our smallest holidaymakers. While mum and dad relax skiing, their children can stay in the “Bärenhöhle” ski kindergarten (the bear cave). The professional entertainers and skiing instructors of the ski kindergarten will keep them amused and make sure your kids have an unforgettable time. Skiing becomes a real adventure: whether skiing in the kinder park with a small ski conveyor belt, the ski training on the slopes or the final ski race. Those who don’t feel like skiing can have a snowball fight or just retreat into the “Bärenhöhle” for playing and drawing. Fun is guaranteed.
The ski kindergarten is open from Monday to Friday, from 10am to 3pm for kids aged from 3 to 8 years.
