Meran 2000 Ski Area

The family ski area above the spa town of Merano

Situated on the high plateau above the spa town of Merano, this ski area offers a total of 40 kilometres of ski runs and South Tyrol’s first mountain coaster, which is open all year round.

The hiking and family skiing area of Merano 2000 offers 40 kilometres of mostly intermediate slopes, and is reachable in just a few minutes from town on the new Merano 2000 Cable Car. A newly built area called Luckis Kinderland offers a ski kindergarten, ski school, magic carpet lifts, snow tube run and plenty of space for sledding and frolicking.

This much-loved ski area just outside of Merano also offers floodlit night skiing, romantic torchlit descents, and night sledding on its groomed, 3-km-long sled run. With a 1.1 kilometre descent, the Alpin Bob is Italy’s longest toboggan track and rises to heights of 12 metres above the ground. Merano 2000 is an ideal ski area for anyone who wants to return to a city atmosphere after a day spent on the slopes and round off the evening with a restaurant meal or a visit to the Terme Merano baths and spa complex.

Right from the slopes to the Christmas market
The family-friendly Merano 2000 Ski Area is located just on the doorstep of the spa resort town of Merano. So after an action-packed winter day with the whole family, it’s a snap to reach one of the most beautiful Christmas markets in the Alps. Meraner Advent season in the heart of the old town begins on 27 November with the opening of the traditional Merano Christmas Market on the promenade.

    The approximately 3-metre long sledding trail at Merano 2000 Ski Area begins right at the summit station at Piffing: there is thus little effort involved in reaching the starting point. The trail’s initial steep curves are especially thrilling and require deft manoeuvres - even from experienced sledders. In addition to the natural sledding trail from Piffing to Falzeben, Merano 2000 Ski Area offers sledding fans the longest toboggan rail in all Italy, the Alpine Bob, the whole year round.

    The Alpine Bob is likewise located in the immediate vicinity of the cable car summit station. A ride on the toboggan rail is a real adrenalin rush: in some sections, the two-seater ride runs 12 metres above the ground.

    Children between 4 and 9 years old ride the Alpine Bob free, but must be accompanied by a person more than 16 years old. Children over the age of 10 may ride without an adult.
