Kronplatz is one of the most diverse and popular ski resorts in South Tyrol. The highest mountain, The 'Glatzkopf´ is in the center of the region. It is surrounded by many villages including Bruneck, Olang, Sankt Lorenzen and St.Vigil in Enneberg. On the mountain top you have a breath taking mountain panoramic view.
Kronplatz is deal for beginners. The reason for this is that the peaks are relatively flat in comparison with other ski areas. There is an assortment of beautiful long descents in this ski area. The longest is 7km long. There are also options for more advanced skiers/boarders. The long valley downhill towards Olang is a much more challenging run. Children will enjoy one of the many child friendly slopes. There is also 280km of Cross country trails.

The French police advise to print out the application form and the confirmation and to take it with you if the vignette is not delivered in time by post. The order form can be found on this website: https://www.certificat-air.gouv.fr/en/demande-ext/cgu
