Kronplatz Ski Resort Italy

Kronplatz Ski Resort (a.ka. Plan de Corones) in the northern Dolomites has a whopping 1325 vertical metres of ski and snowboard terrain to suit everyone - tick. Kronplatz Italy is located on the outskirts of the delightful Brunico (Bruneck) and has its own railway station (Perca/Percha) directly at a gondola base - tick. Kronplatz has incredible snow making, lift infrastructure and perfect piste trails - tick.

The only thing that could make it better is being part of the Dolomiti Superski area - tick. Add direct train links to other Dolomiti ski areas like 3 Peaks Dolomites (f.k.a. Sesto Dolomites) plus Sillian in Austria and an easy bus link to Alta Badia - tick. Certainly ticks a few boxes.

Kronplatz Ski & Snowboard Terrain

Kronplatz has some of the best on piste terrain of any ski resort in Italy. The 1325m of skiable vertical and nearly 120km of ski trails are all serviced by 32 lifts, including a dizzying 21 gondolas which extend in all directions from the summit. Kronplatz is definitely the place to ski if one is not a fan of surface and chairlifts! The lift system is able to move a huge number of skiers and snowboarders extremely efficiently.

The Kronplatz on piste terrain includes descents of up to 10km in a beginner, intermediate and advanced trail combination from the summit down to Perca. In general, whilst there are some superb on piste trails for advanced skiers, the ski resort is most suited to families, beginners and intermediates.

Where is Kronplatz Italy?

Kronplatz ski resort is in the northern Dolomites about 110km south of Innsbruck Austria, near the historic city of Brunico (Brunick).

Gateway airports for international travellers are Munich, Milan & Venice, with Innsbruck & Verona providing options for European & UK skiers. Access to the resort by train to Percha station is world’s best!

Kronplatz Snow & Weather

Kronplatz ski resort's geographical location gives it the best of both worlds in terms of snow & weather. Weather systems sympathetic to both Austria and the Dolomites will deliver snow to Kronplatz as well. If mother nature doesn't deliver, Kronplatz has the world's best snowmaking system ensuring top to bottom skiing for the entire season. 

Interlinked with Dolomiti Superski

Part of the Dolomiti Superski area, Kronplatz is a short train or bus ride away from several Dolomites ski resorts, the closest of which is Alta Badia, 11km from the Piculin gondola base at Piccolino. A ski bus links the Piculin gondola in Kronplatz to the Sponata chairlift in Alta Badia. From Alta Badia skiers can complete the classic Sella Ronda tour.

Kronplatz Accommodation

Visitors to the Kronplatz ski resort have a wide choice of options when staying overnight. The wonderful city of Brunico (Brunick) has some excellent hotels. The ski resort is a short drive, train or bus ride away. Brunico hotels near the railway station will allow skiers to take the train to Perca and Kronplatz's Ried gondola which leaves directly from the train platform.

For ski in ski out convenience, the main Kronplatz ski resort base is the village of Riscone (Reischach), 4km from Brunico. Another option is the village of Perca (Percha), just above the train station of the same name. The gondola access from the Perca railway station is unprecedented. Due its size, Kronplatz extends south and west toward Alta Badia.
