The Speikboden ski area is a place with great variety – above all else when it comes to what is available in the way of activities. It is not just skiing and snowboarding that are the order of the day, but also sledding, a winter sport with a huge fun factor that is very popular especially with families and children. In this ski area, there are two sled runs at once, one of which can boast the distinction of being the longest sled run in all South Tyrol-Südtirol. The starting point of both sled runs is located at the mountain terminal which can be reached without any problems with the Speikboden cable car.
With a length of 10 km (6.2 miles), sledders leisurely head down a very well-groomed sled run – which can even be covered with man-made snow, if necessary – all the way to Lutago-Luttach. The second sled run, which is just as wide with a total length of 8 km (5 miles) has the same starting point, but after a couple of miles it turns off toward Rio Bianco-Weißenbach. From either of the destinations, sledders can be picked up again by the ski bus or public bus and taken back to the valley terminal to head up again.
Also particularly popular is the weekly Rodelgaudisledding party, a sledding event that is open to everyone.
Speikboden Bergbahnen is a snow-secure, familiarly skiing-area in the valley “Tauferer-Ahrntal”. It contains 8 cableways with a total transport performance of 13.140 persons/hour. About 80 hectare of slopes has to offer enough liberty for everyone – from the summit (2.400 m altitude) to the valley (950 m altitude). Many alternations of the terrain and very wide slopes make happy beginners and professional skiers. In the summer the “Speikboden” is a fantastic hiking area!
The two ski arenas Speikboden and Klausberg including the two town lifts Weißenbach and Rein in Taufers form together the Skiworld Ahrntal. A single ski pass allows you to use over 74 kilometers of slopes while 21 lifts from 950 to 2.510 meters carry you to the mountain top. The covering artificial snow systems of the Skiworld Ahrntal guarantee snow all the way through.
