The municipality of Sesto stretches from the entrance of the valley at San Candido up to the Passo Croce. Sesto harkens back on an animated past and is today one of the most famous holiday destinations of the province of Bolzano.
Beside the main village of Sesto/Sexten, it comprises the localities of San Giuseppe, Außerberg, Quiniga, Monte di Mezzo, Moso and Ferrara and a territory between 1,244 m to the 3,152 m high Cima Tre Scarperi. Undoubtedly the most striking rock formation are the Tre Cime di Lavaredo, to which Sesto owes its world-wide fame. It is not only the major attraction of the municipality, but also the symbol of the Alta Pusteria.
Sesto ski area
Sesto is the ideal starting point to make use of the Tre Cime Dolomiti mountain ski area that offers a proud 94 kilometres of ski runs. From the village you can get directly to the Monte Elmo ski station, continue along the Stiergarten Alp with a unique view of the Three Peaks and up to the Croda Rossa mountain.
Croda Rossa has 17 km of piste and 3 lifts and is accessible via two funiculars from Bagni di Moso. The ski area is popular with families thanks to a 5 km adventure toboggan run and a fun park for both skiers and snowboarders. One of the main highlights, however, is the black Holzriese run, which is Italy’s steepest piste with a gradient of 71% - so it’s most definitely not for the faint-hearted! There are plenty of great runs for less experienced skiers, too, ensuring groups of skiers with mixed abilities can all have the best possible ski holiday in the Sesto Dolomites.
Drei Zinnen Snowpark is the largest, and it is divided into two areas: the KIDS Learn Park and the Easy/Medium Park, which makes it suitable for beginners. In Kids Park, Junior freestylers can let off steam on three kickers and a small whoops line. The Easy/Medium park offers eight kickers, various boxes and an exciting jib area.
In Dobbiaco you can try out the only Big Airbag in Alta Pusteria - the perfect place for extensive jumping training. The 260 m long Funpark Rienz has six jumps and ten rails.
