If you visit Meransen in winter, let yourself be tempted by its shimmering white expanses. A real sight to behold, the snowy landscape might appear to be an untouchable work of art, but in fact it offers lots of sports and leisure opportunities. The valley terminal of the lift that takes you to the Gitschberg Jochtal ski resort is just a short walk from the village centre. So, whichever hotel in the Pustertal valley you choose, you can always reach the ski resort at 2,113 metres of altitude in no time. When you do, you can have your pick: ski pistes, snowboard terrains and toboggan runs are all there for you. If you would rather enjoy a more contemplative experience, you can choose one of the winter walking paths and soak up the peace and tranquillity in which Meransen is immersed during winter, looking for animal tracks in the snow and relishing the crunching sound of the snow under your feet.
