Merano & surroundings

Skitour to the Kuhleitenhütte hut

Starting at Falzleben, this beautiful tour takes you over the slopes of Merano 2000 and up to the farmed Kuhleitenhütte hut.

The workers preparing the slopes along the one you need to take will not work between the hours of 5.30 pm to 11.00 pm, just so you can enjoy your evening ski tour in peace.
