Marvel at the unspoiled nature and majestic peaks in the UNESCO World Heritage site of the Dolomites. Skiers will be sure to love the beauty of the 3 Zinnen ski region and all that it has to offer. Within the 3 Zinnen ski region, there are two resorts of particular interest: Sexten and San Candido. The mountains, Monte Elmo, Stiergarten, Croda Rossa, Passo Monte Croce and Col d'la Tenda are connected at the centre of the 3 Zinnen Dolomites ski resort. These five connected mountains give skiers over 100km of pistes to explore; and with 20 cable cars, getting around the mountain has never been easier. Each Alpine village situated at their respective mountain has a different vibe and style, from traditional Alpine to more cultural centres. This resort boasts itself as the ideal ski resort for 'connoisseurs' as the modern ski resort of the Italian Dolomites is still focussed around skiing, relaxing with friends and family, as well as a fantastic atmosphere.
Sexten (or Sesto as it is sometimes known) is a large town in the middle of the ski resort with access to all the lifts and 2,920m of vertical descent to explore. Boasting 371 acres of terrain over 44 pistes, Sexten is best for intermediate skiers and snowboarders. Beginners will also find terrain here to build their confidence on. For those looking for something a little different and challenging, there are cross-country trails as well as a terrain park to practice freestyle skiing and snowboarding. Most of the slopes in Sexten are covered by snowmaking, making it a great snow-sure resort. Surrounded by the beautiful natural landscape of the Sesto Dolomites, the sunlit downhill slopes, as well as traditional rifugio huts, are a key part of your ski holiday.
San Candido is tucked away in the stunning 3 Zinnen region in South Tyrol. A picturesque ski town perfect for those looking for a combination of amazing views and top quality runs, this quiet resort is perfect for families looking to maximise their time on the slopes and with next-to-no queueing time, skiers can do just that here. The tranquil atmosphere of San Candido makes it one of the most serene and beautiful resorts in Europe. With a spacious children's play run and toboggan runs too, there is plenty to keep young children amused on the slopes, all whilst improving their skiing confidence. Despite being a charming market town, San Candido is home to a vast array of shops and restaurants. There is also an in-resort spa for those looking to unwind and relax their ski legs after a day on the slopes.
