Winter holidays in Meransen Ski resort Gitschberg/ Jochtal
Are you one of those who are only really active in winter, who cannot stay any longer indoor already by the very first snow, but draws on the ski slope, toboggan run, or the cross-country ski? Then in our winter holidays in Meransen you are in the right resort. Above our high plateau is the Gitschberg, which will satisfy all winter sports desires. Right next door, easy to reach by train, there is the other part of the ski area Gitschberg-Jochtal.
New: Extended Gitschberg nature toboggan trail
In the winter of 2017/18, the extended natural toboggan trail in Meransen on the Gitschberg, which now goes from the mountain station of the cable car down to the valley station to Meransen, awaits our toboggan fans for even more winter fun!
Cross-country skiing in Meransen The trail to the winter sport joy
Four trails just around the corner
Gitschberg-Jochtal is waiting for you with several excellent trails. Two of them run directly around Meransen. They are a total of 16 km long, from easy to moderate difficulty, and therefore good for families and cross-country skiing beginners. Particularly recommended is the beautiful trail Lobenweg-Bacherhütte, which begins in Altfasstal and is 8 km long. In Vals you will find an almost equally long circular trail that starts at the valley station Jochtal and is regarded as very child friendly. Just a bit further away there is the 3 km long village trail Pfunderer Dorfloipe, which is just right for any beginner because of its short length.
The Rodenecker-Lüsner-Alp trail
The Rodeneck Alp is also very attractive for cross-country skiers. You should definitely mark the local Alp trail at 1,930 m. It begins at the Zumis parking area and leads you over 15 kilometers on a panoramic tour, whose beauty will impress you with unforgettable memories. Also it is ideal for families and presents no special challenges. And once you have pleasantly cross-country skied these trails in Meransen, in Eisack valley many more are waiting for you with a total length of 240 km – and really each of them has its own charm!
A toboggan ride is always there
Slide unrestrained into the winter fun. A toboggan ride is a must in every active holiday! Sitting or lying on a rapid slope down rushing into the valley is the most fun for children – and parents get back to their childhood in an instant. While sledding in Meransen the whole family can experience something. The nice thing for you: We have numerous toboggan runs on site and in the immediate vicinity. As it’s convenient, you can borrow a toboggan on site and return it after the ride down. So you can decide even on a whim to dive into the runners fun.
Three toboggan runs in Meransen
In der Wintersportregion Gitschberg-Jochtal hat jeder Ferienort seine Naturrodelbahn. Rodeln in Meransen können Sie am besten auf der Naturrodelbahn, die von der Mittelstation Gitschberg (1,5 km, leicht) talabwärts führt. Dies wird für den Winter 2017/18 sogar erweitert und garantiert dann von der Bergstation bis zur Talstation jede Menge gesicherten Rodelspaß.
Weiters gibt es die für Anfänger und Profis geeignete Kunsteisrodelstartbahn in unserer Tennishalle, welche sogar vom Nationalteam der Rodler als Trainingsstation genutzt wird. Ihnen wird ganz bestimmt nicht langweilig, wenn Sie auf der Suche nach dem ultimativen Rodelerlebnis sind.
