Nowadays the areas of the Dolomiti Val Pusteria are known to all. Close to the ski resort of Austria is the Helm Mount. The runs start from the summit at 2.200 meters down into the valley with 21 kilometres of paths. The longest slope is the track Raut, after 4,8 kilometres you arrive in town Versiaco (Versiach) in the area of San Candido (Innichen), from here you can go up by cable car. Cable car that climbs the other side with another 7 lifts and chairlifts complete the offer of the town. The trails are not hard, sometimes, however, the last stretch of track that leads to the base of the gondola could be icy. We emphasize the beauty of the views on top of Mount Elmo.
Always at the ski area Baranci offers 8 kilometres of ski runs served by 4 ski lifts. Here the difficulty is reduced, at most average. Here the focus is placed on kids, thanks to the presence of a playground. In terms of racing that stands out but here are disputed World Cup races of snowboarding.
