For every tour a small description is provided as well as a skimap showing the skiroute. Along the skiway you will find marks with a link behind showing you the picture of the current position; at time around 80 one. Some videoclips are plant for the future also.
The beginning of the description of all tours is Colfosco the village we normally stay, but you can enter all the tours just as well from all other locations.
The “Mountain Infantry Tour”, the “Gebirgsjägertour” (⇒ History): Former named as the “Skitour of the 1. Worldwar”, consists of 3 sections:
Except for the Civetta region all tourinformationen are available at the described skitours. You can ride the Gebirgsjägertour in both directions.
The length is about 90 km, proportinate 40% are slopes, 24% lifts and 36% skibus use. That medium tour is loooong, that is why you have to take the first lift in the morning and then go on riding, riding, riding...
Before starting inform yourself at tourist- or skipassoffice whether the route is open in all parts!
The ski region Kronplatz is about 45 min by car away from Alta Badia. You drive to "Sankt Vigil in Enneberg" to the parking at the terminal directly. Good skiers are able to ride all slopes in one day. The center of the slopes is situated on the top of the Kronplatz (Plan de Corones).

Willy Bogner, a german cameraman, has taken the unforgettable wild ski chase inside the bob run.
