Northwest of Merano, the Val Senales / Schnaltal Ski Area is a surprisingly large glacial ski area with 10 lifts serving 15 pistes with a maximum vertical drop of 1,000m. The base area is a small, purpose-built village that lacks alpine charm, but the varied snowboarding runs should be good for a couple days. The best Val Senales snowboarding can usually be found during the months of January and February.
The Val Senales / Schnaltal Ski Area is part of the larger Ortler SkiArena pass covering 15 ski areas that are not interconnected (good to have a car to utilize).
If you are looking for apres ski action, you may find it alittle limited here, but check ou the Bussl Bar and then the Platzl Bar. The only nightlife might be the pub in the basement of Hotel Piccolo Gurschler.
To reach the Val Senales / Schnals Ski Area, fly to Bolzano or Innsbruck, take train to Merano, and then catch hourly bus up valley to Maso Corto / Kurzras.
Overall, Val Senales-Schnaltal Ski Area is the 14th most popular snowboard & freeride destination of all 57 snowboarding resorts in Italy.
