“Not on same level with other ski resorts”
Reviewed 20 April 2013 via mobile

Unfortunately Plose is not on the same level with other ski resorts in the area.
1. The pistes are slower and less comfortable to reach - you need to swap halfway up the mountain from car or ski bus to gondola.
2. Limited number of choices of pistes.
3. Poor snow preparation. At least when we visited at the end of March we never saw a single piste machine working.
4. So compared to what you get you pay a lot for skiing on Plose.

In my opinion there are 3 advantages with Brixen/Bressanone and Plose:
1. Easy to reach, also by train.
2. Less crowded than more popular places.
3. A splendid in- and outdoor heated swimming pool and wellness centre is free for use for guests staying at Brixen hotels.

“Poor snow preparation”
Reviewed 26 January 2013

Many pistes were unpisted on the two days we skied there. This was a particular problem because of the heavy snow. The lift up to the Plose peak is slow and cold. It's about time it was brought up to the standard of the other lifts, since it is a crucial connection from the Pfannspitz to Kreuztal. Last year the piste prep was much better.

“the VIEWS!”
Reviewed 22 September 2012

We rode up from Brixen to the bottom of the Plose gondola, up the Gondola, then rode up another 400m and east towards the Putzjoch to see an incredible view of the Dolomites and down to the Shatzerhutte for lunch. Plose Mountain has many other trails you can ride. This ride was quite long, had some nice wanderweg trails during the descent but did have a lot of road riding to get back to Brixen. You could ride 2-3 days in this area on Plose Mountain and other trails in this area. Staying at the Golden Krone and getting a guided ride around would be the most efficient way to check out this area for sure.

“Walking”
Reviewed 19 August 2012

If you want to go for a nice walk - take the cable car up and just walk around. Two nice shelters within more or less 1 hr walking.

“Great views”
Reviewed 29 July 2012

A must if you stay in Brixen. Free ride up with brixen card. Breathtaking views and a great restaurant up at the top for food and beer.
