Ski vacations Kurzras – small but impressive!
Val SenalesThe 22 km long Val Senales is the one which most strongly dominated by tourism in the Southern Tyrol Vinschgau. Especially mentionable is the diverse scenery which can be found on such a small area - from the vineyards at the valley entrance right up to the sparkling ice at the glacier at the back end of the valley. The Schnalser Bach runs along the valley floor, which is used a water reservoir at the upper end of the valley, caused by the Vernagt dam. The region is not only known for its glacier ski area with its 35 km of piste. It also gained a lot of attention, caused by a German couple who were hiking in the upper end of the valley, at the Tisenjoch, where they found the ice mummy Ötzi, back in September 1991. The archaeological activity museum "ArcheoParc Schnals" therefore has dedicated itself to research and information on the life and surroundings of the "man from the ice".
Once there was the largest farm of the region located here at the end of the Val Senales. However that has changed a bit since then. In midst of the huge mountain massif with a number of 3,000 m peaks there is now a modern ski station which easily combines functionality and Tyrolean cosiness. Kurzras maybe small, however that does not mean that is doesn't offer the amenities required for a relaxing holiday.
But winter sports fans not only come here due to the good infrastructure. It is rather the ski area that attracts them, which is accessible via chair lift or gondola directly from Kurzras. The ski areas at the Schnalstaler Glacier offers skiing from October until May - which extends the regular season considerably. The leisure time offers away from the pistes however, are also worth mentioning - never mind if it be sporty and active or culturally based.
