Dolomiti Superski: Plan de Corones is part of the ski carousel Dolomiti Superski. With its 450 ropeways and 1200km of downhill runs with artificial snow, set in 12 different Dolomitic valleys – an all these with one and the same skipass – the consortium Dolomiti Superski is ranked among the world’s best organizations in the field of skiing tourism. Plan de Corones constitutes a unity, together with the ski areas Sellaronda, Alta Badia, Marmolada, Val Gardena and Val di Fassa. And since the successful construction of the ropeway Piculin, the Dolomiti Superski is all the more close to us! Moreover, Dolomiti Superski offers 15 famous ski tours which are dedicated to different themes. Plan de Corones is ruled by the Legend of the Dolomites. Plan de Corones Skitour of Ladin legends. The knight and the princess: Franz Wilhelm de Brach: who was he? Ask the Ladins of San Vigilio di Marebbe. They will tell you, that Franz Wilhelm de Brach was the Gran Bracun. And you will know as little as you knew before. So we shall tell you: he was a knight without fault or fear, just like all the knights in the legends. And since he was a real knight, he also had a victorious battle with a dragon in his curriculum. And he lived in a legendary place. So, let’s leave San Vigilio and take the ropeway to Piz de Plaies. Let’s ski down to the refuge La Para, the ideal place for a refreshing snack. And now let’s venture down the new slope to San Vigilio and get on the “Skitrans Bronta” that takes us to the ropeways to Plan de Corones. We are moving in the very heart of the Realm of the Fanes, the nation of dwarfs. The heartless and covetous king, the princess lovely and humane. Dolasilla, the adorable princess, makes up for her father’s misdeeds and earns thus an immaculate sable that will make her invulnerable. Miracles on the table and in church: The plot of the legend is rather tangled. It is therefore most important for you to listen to it while savouring a most delicious “crafun more”, a krapfen stuffed with venison ragout. The right address is Rifugio Graziani. And for good digestion, we suggest a healthy glass of dwarf-pine snaps at Rifugio Bivacco. And to keep on talking about miracles, we remind you, that in 1636 the people of Monguelfo in Pusteria went on pilgrimage to the Madonna of Marebbe to gain release from the plague. And the miracle happened.
