Unlike most ski areas where the lifts all start in one main hub and diverge as they head up the mountain, the Kronplatz region is made up of small surrounding villages, which converge at the top of the mountain. The ski area then surrounds the entire mountain and guests can descend on long, cruising runs, the whole way down there are superb views over the Dolomites UNESCO World Heritage Site. Tuesday through Saturday the resort also offers night-time skiing across four slopes.
The Snowpark Kronplatz-Plan de Corones is situated between the Belvedere and Plateau slopes. The park features four different lines: an easy line featuring kickers and boxes, a medium rail line, a medium kicker line and a family fun line with banked turns, tunnels, and the new F-tech family fun boxes. The Korer Park is built specifically for kids and has six features for them to learn and develop their skills.

There are snowshoe hikes that explore areas off the beaten track, sledding for those looking for a bit of an adrenaline rush and winter hikes to explore the resort's hidden gems. Various events are held in Kronplatz including the Women's World Cup and the Biathalon World Cup which can provide much entertainment for both skiers and non-skiers alike.
