Our valley is located at the heart of the Eisack/Isarco Valley, making it an ideal starting point for other surrounding ski areas, enticing you to try new and varied slopes and ski runs every day. Be it in the skiing areas of Plose, Gitschberg-Jochtal, Gröden/Val Gardena, Obereggen or Kronplatz/Plan de Corones – perfectly groomed slopes, modern lifts, breathtaking panoramic views, wonderful skiing weather and first-class ski huts will convince every skier.

Sledging fun in the Dolomites

Perfect place for tobogganing

The Funes/Villnöss Valley is criss-crossed with great toboggan runs for every taste and requirement. There is the perfect toboggan run for beginners as well as professionals.

Toboggans can be rented directly from the huts or in the valley.
