There are countless ski areas in South Tyrol, but the Monte Cavallo is something special. Not only because the “sun terrace of Vipiteno” beckons with 20 kilometres of pistes and wonderful views. No, these slopes are so varied that they are used as training slopes by both the WSV Sterzing and the hogh school of Sport Vipiteno

But that’s not all – recently the top athletes Petra Vlhova and Sarah Hector also discovered the Rosskopf as a training location and have been working on their turns there for several years.

But this is not the first time in the history of the Rosskopf that the international ski circus has met on the Monte Cavallo. As early as 1969, only three years after the gondola opened on Vipiteno´s local mountain, women’s World Cup races were held there, and the men also skied two World Cup slaloms there in 1973 and 1975, won once by Piero Gros from South Tyrol and once by the legendary Ingemar Stenmark.

What does that tell us? That the Monte Cavallo, then as now, offers really great opportunities for everyone – not only for skiers, but also for tobogganing, hiking and having fun – in summer as well as in winter! Psssst – here’s an insider tip: with the new panorama lift, which will open in 2023, you’ll get to the Rosskopf even faster – and on the downhill run back down to the valley just as quickly! So – ready for your next adventure?
