Fun in the snow, from snowboard to sledge
The Nussbaumerhof is also an ideal springboard for a winter holiday in the Plose. In a few minutes by car, you are at the valley station of the Plose-Seilbahn, from where the full winter programme of the Plose-Berg is yours to enjoy. Alongside 40 kilometres of pistes, this is where the famous Trametsch-Talabfahrt is to be found; at 9 kilometres, it is the longest descent in South Tyrol. Snowboarders get their money’s worth at the Funpark. Here is a great selection of rails and boxes, where both beginners and advanced riders can show off and practise their tricks. It you are on the Plose, do not miss the chance to try out the RudiRun, a true sledging treat. This natural toboggan run is 10.5 kilometres long and is therefore one of the longest in South Tyrol. If you do not have a sledge with you, do not worry. Sledges are available to rent at the Plose-Bahn valley station.
Another fun thing to do on the Plose Berg is snow shoeing. In contrast to skiing, there is no learning period when it comes to this winter sport. Just a few easy trips suffice to get the hang of it, and then you are free to wander through romantic winter landscapes and enjoy the views of the snow-covered summits. Popular routes go from the mountain station at the top of the gondola from Kreuztal up to the Plose-Skihütte, or the route from Kreuztal to Rossalm.
