With over 115km of varying pistes, 3 Zinnen Dolomites is a fantastic destination for mixed ability skiers and families. Monte Baranci is floodlight between 7pm - 10pm on Tuesday's and Friday's, which is great for those wanting to make the most of their liftpasses. Kids can learn in the designated family ski area in Braies and go down the Rudolph the re-dnosed reindeer ski training track. Expereinced skiers should tackle the challenging Holzreise black run; with its 70% gradient it's one of the Alps' steepest runs.
