Ski holiday in South Tyrol: Ridanna and Racines
Our hotel in Ridanna/Ridnaun is the ideal destination for a ski holiday in South Tyrol. The ski resort Racines-Giovo/Ratschings-Jaufen is situated only ten kilometres from Gassenhof. A highly modern gondola lift with 8 seats takes you up to the mountain station, at 2,150 metres. The ride with the gondola lift offers an unforgettable experience and a fantastic panorama.

The varied slopes in the ski resort Racines-Giovo/Ratschings-Jaufen are not only perfect for skiers, but also for snowboarders. The well maintained ski runs with snow guarantee were awarded the international quality seal “Skiareatest” in 2013/2014; the ski resort was named “shooting star of the year”. During your ski holiday in Racines/Ratschings you enjoy a total of 25 slope kilometres, 8 lifts and 16 slopes, with something for every level: beginner to professional.

Gasse ski lift right beside our hotel
Situated directly next to the Gassenhof – The Place of Experiences you find a little ski lift. The Gasse ski lift is especially suited for little skiers, but also for beginners who are new to the world of skiing. The kids’ park offers fun in the snow, with or without skis. If you are looking to improve or freshen up your skills, you can sign up for a ski course directly at the Gasse ski lift. All children up to the age of eight get to use the Gasse ski lift for free.
More than just a ski holiday: winter walking in South Tyrol
A winter holiday in South Tyrol is far more than just skiing and snowboarding. If you prefer to go slow, we recommend you to explore the region by foot. Experience the breathtaking winter wonderland up-close and soak up the unique ambience. The surroundings of our Hotel Gassenhof are a veritable winter-walking paradise. In fact, South Tyrol is brimming with well-marked walking trails.
If you are looking for an alternative to the fun on the slopes, set out to explore the surrounding nature by foot and take in this peaceful silence. The winter walks are well maintained and so easy to master with winter shoes. Also snowshoeing is becoming increasingly popular in winter. The smart design of the snowshoes allows you to walk off track, visiting ski huts situated at higher altitudes. Winter walking in South Tyrol is all about gentle exercise, taking you to the heart of this snowy winter wonderland.
