Winter white in the Eggen Valley

The must-do events

Everyone loves glittering white snow, with cold air in your nose and clouds that form with every breath! We wrap up in woolly jumpers, thick socks, hats and scarves, with hot tea to keep warm inside and exciting winter adventures to fire our imaginations! So we have put together a selection of the top winter tips – each one a must-do!

Snow Night Show

Night skiing is so last year! The Carezza Snownight and the Obereggen Nightshow turn the ski slopes into exciting spectacles! There are torchlight descents, freestyle, telemark and snowcat shows, fireworks, an open-air disco, skiing and freestyle artworks... plus ski school displays! The fun starts at 9:30pm each Monday and Wednesday and runs from December to March. There is even a free shuttle bus to the snow night!
All the dates for the Snownight in Carezza can be found hereand here are the dates for the Nightshow in Obereggen! Let the snowshow begin!

Quieter…

Experience winter in close-up: far away from the hectic pistes, enjoy a walk on snowshoes or in hiking boots through the wintry woods and snowy meadows, enjoying the tranquillity of the unspoilt white world... or what about a ski tour to one of the surrounding summits?! Winter in the Eggen Valley offers plenty of choice: and at the Hotel Engel we can offer you plenty of suggestions for routes and guided winter walks – you can find all the information you need for a snowy winter’s day in Welschnofen directly at reception!
 
 

We are family

Sledging is the perfect winter sport for families, with fun guaranteed for large and small alike! But, let's be honest, once you have gone down the same run three times, it's time for something new! No problem in the Eggen Valley, with its four different toboggan runs in two ski areas. Not only that: there are not just the toboggan runs, but also the true highlight – in both summer and winter - the Alpine Coaster, a toboggan rollercoaster right in the midst of the Dolomites! The coaster whizzes down two steep slopes at 40 km/h, rockets through 360° and zooms round several banked corners – with a total length of 980 metres! And, best of all, it is open every day from December to March! More details can be found here.

Talking of winter…

…the best comes last of all – the ski areas! And there are two close by our hotel: Carezza and Obereggen, each with over 40 km of pistes, 15 and 18 ski lifts respectively, 30 ski huts, plus snow parks, kids’ areas, and ski and snowboard schools! What’s more, both ski areas form part of the Dolomiti-Superski-Carousel – the world’s largest ski area, boasting 12 ski areas and 1,200 kilometres of pistes! And, when you buy a multi-day pass for the Carezza ski area, you gain free access to all 211 kilometres of pistes and 7 ski areas of the Val di Fassa ski area. So - any more questions!?

Take a break from the fresh winter air and relax in our wellness area with its brand new sauna world! :-) There is also a heated outdoor pool and a bubbling jacuzzi on the terrace for you to enjoy a blissful winter wellness experience surrounded by white snows!

Family for families

Holidays are a form of luxury: not everyone has the time or financial means to afford them.

As free as a bird in the Dolomites!

“Get up, get up!” My boyfriend is particularly euphoric as he wakes me up this holiday morning. I try to resist his alarm call but, after three more shouts of “Get up!”, curiosity wins out.
