 Speikboden - sun and fun


 
Speikboden boasts a very nice terrain park. Of course South Tyrolean terrain parks can not keep up with the terrain parks in 7 Laux or in St. Moritz for instance but in view of the many advantages of northern Italy that really doesn't matter. South Tyrol is the sunniest Alpine region in Europe and thus a sunny day in the park is almost guaranteed. And the terrain park in Speikboden is quite well equipped. 4 different lines and 15 obstacles are the park facts, which are certainly not to be looked down upon by novice and intermediate freestylers. Those who are keen on gliding through powder should definitely get some info on snowlevels before travelling to the region as some winters are almost too mild. But when snowcover is good South Tyrol offers unequalled descents. In the upper regions Speikboden offers some breathtaking outback possibilities. Party hungry winter athletes are better off in Austria. For après skiing in Speikboden Greti's Umbrella-Bar is the place to be.
