Summary

Kronplatz/Plan de Corones is little-known in the UK but popular with locals because of its ideal intermediate terrain and astonishingly hi-tech lift system with 21 out of 32 lifts being gondolas and 4 out of 5 chairlifts being high-speed. The slopes have 100 per cent snowmaking, and it is used very well – including on two long (1300m vertical), fabulously groomed black runs down towards Brunico. The area best suits early-to-average intermediates willing to take on challenges. San Vigilio is a pretty village with its own area of slopes separate from the main Plan de Corones area but linked by a cross-village gondola. On the other side of the mountain is Percha, now linked by lift and rail service from Brunico.
