Ski area Val Venosta: Watles
Watles is a small and elegant ski resort, perfect for families. Its unique location offers a breathtaking view on the glaciers of the Ortles group. It’s one of the most appreciated ski resorts of the Val Venosta valley, ideal for cross-country skiing and for snowshoeing.
The three modern lift facilities will take you to the top without you having to wait in a queue, and the resort, included in the Ortler Skiarena, offers 20 km slopes that cater to all ability levels.
Cross-country skiing enthusiasts find only a few km from Watles, in the Val di Slingia valley, 15 km trails winding in an unpolluted and relaxing natural environment. Moreover, in the past seasons the ski center hosted the Junior World Championships and the National Championships.
In the ski resort of Watles you can have fun also without skiing, maybe, why not, dashing down the 4 km long sledding slope. If you feel more like spending some time in the quietness of beautiful snow-covered landscapes, you can choose one of the many trails to explore on foot, with the snowshoes or with the ski mountaineering skis.
