Winter escape in South Tyrol
Ski and fun at the Oberparthenhof, our holiday apartments in the Alps
In the winter season too the Ultental Valley offers a superb location for an unforgettable stay in the Alps: the snow-covered landscape is the perfect background for winter hikes, ski tours and snowshoe hikes leading amidst forests and to high peaks. For those who like winter sports , the Schwemmalm ski resort offers the best slopes and a beautiful cross-country ski run along the valley floor.
Other popular winter activities include sledding, ice skating and paragliding. Even in winter, some mountain huts and inns are open, serving traditional South Tyrolean cuisine.
