Ski Plose Brixen by Train

43 km of piste between 1067-2505m

Bressanone is probably better known as Brixen, the German name for the town, since the majority of the population speak German even though the resort is in Italy - and not to be confused with another ski resort at Brixen in Austria. It is a substantial town with a long history, situated where the valleys of the Eisack and Rienz rivers conjoin. The ski area lies on the mountains of the East of the valley, below the 2562m Plose, which gives the ski area its name. The base station is actually in a small village outside Brixen called St Andra and there is about another 40km of piste in other neighbouring villages. It is a nice ski area, with most ski runs high, above the tree line and not requiring the use of surface lifts.
