Ski area Furkel

Ski area Furkel

For a wider range of pistes, trips out to the other ski areas in the Ortler region are worth it, such as the nearby Sulden am Ortler. With the ski pass "2 Länder Skiarena", a total of 211 kilometres of pistes and 55 lifts in five ski areas are available to you: alongside Sulden there is Schöneben, Haideralm, Watles, Trafoi and Nauders.

The ski area local to Trafoi is the family-friendly Furkel. The eight pistes with a total of 8 km in length are located above the village at an altitude of 1,570 m to 2,400 m and can be accessed through two chair lifts and one tow lift. The valley station of the chair lift is located at the village centre and goes up into the centre of the ski area over two sections. There, red and blue panoramic slopes are there for beginners and more advanced skiers. For more ambitious skiers, the roughly 1 km long black piste "Schönblick" starts from the highest point on the slopes. The majority of the slopes can be covered in artificial snow and the cosy Furkelhütte at an altitude of 2,250 m make for a cosy place for a rest. Near to the valley station is the Thöni-Piste, a very flat practice slope for children and beginners. Near the children's area, with a conveyor belt and baby slope, there is also the local ski school and a ski kindergarten.

Après ski Trafoi

In Trafoi, active sports and relaxation are in focus. The classic après ski parties at the lifts is less common here. In the resort, however, there is a pub and some hotel bars, that make for an inviting place to head for après ski after the lifts close. However, the stunning nature in this area is much more exciting. Hikers, cross-country skiers and snow shoe hikers really get their money's worth here. For winter hikes, two routes near to the resort are well recommended: the ascent to the Furkelhütte in the ski area, and the other to the place of pilgrimage "Heilige drei Brunnen".

The hike to the Furkelhütte is a medium difficulty tour of around two hours, which can be combined with a cosy stop. The ascent is worth it as from the Furkelhütte you can enjoy a breathtaking view of the mountain range in the Stelvio National Park.

For families with children, as well as for less experienced hikers, the easy route to the "Heilige drei Brunnen" church is recommended. There is not much of an ascent and the route ends after around 1.5 hours of walking in a piece of woodland above the resort.

A particularly special hiking experience can be found on a snow shoe hike. For this there are also various beautiful routes that lead through the Stelvio National Park. The starting point for many circuits around Trafoi is the ski area Furkel.

In the Ortler Arena there are multiple toboggan runs, including the longest run in Italy. The 10 km stretch leads from Rosskopf to Sterzing. Near Trafoi at the Weißen Knott, there is a 3 km long toboggan run, which guarantees fast-paced fun for the whole family. If you're interested in ice skating, you can travel the approx. 30 km to Reschensee, where ice skaters and ice hockey players romp about on the lake, given that temperatures are low enough.

Snowpark: Trafoi

The local ski area Furkel unfortunately does not have a snowpark. However, in the other ski areas of the "2 Länder Skiarena" lift network there are exciting snowparks to discover. The closest to Trafoi is the Funkpark Sulden. At an altitude of 2,850 m, near to the Madrischhütte, the area offers everything an ambitious freestyler could wish for. In addition, on the Madritsch glacier there is a boardcross run in free terrain. Further snowparks and fun areas to choose from are located in the ski area Schöneben and on the Schnalstaler glacier.
