South Tyrol's Ski Mountain Nr. 1

In the winter the municipality of Kiens with its villages and hamlets of Kiens, Ehrenburg, St. Sigmund and Hofern presents itself with an outstanding panorama. Located on the River Rienz at 786 m above sea level, Kiens is blessed with a sunny snow-covered landscape which holds great attractions for winter walkers. Young and old can have great fun on the toboggan run. Kiens, however, has plenty to offer for all kinds of winter sports enthusiasts. Twice a week there is a special bus with ski guides which takes more demanding cross-country skiers to a well-known and beautiful cross-country ski area. Only 10 km from Kiens, the Kronplatz, a large ski area served by interconnecting lifts, offers non-stop skiing enjoyment to skiers and snowboarders. There is a Ski-Train-Schuttle (St. Sigmund - Kiens- Zugbahnohf Ehrenburgf - Percha- Kronplatz) Skibusdienst (St. Sigmund - Kiens - Reischach - Kronplatz)

Skibus  (Hofern - Kronplatz) (service to the Kronplatz skiing paradise. Cleared winter walking paths, horse-drawn sleigh rides through snow-covered landscape and well-groomed cross-country trails invite you to enjoy a day without skiing. Another alternative to skiing is snowshoeing. In collaboration with the Alpinschule Pustertal (Alpine ski and mountaineering school) we have compiled a list of snowshoe walks and tours, which take place every Wednesday.
