In winter Tirolo shows off its quiet side. The promenades and themed trails above the roofs of Merano defy the winter cold with their sunny location and entice visitors to enjoy winter hikes and walks with magnificent views. Skiers and winter sports lovers will find that Tirolo is the perfect vacation base for exploring the best ski resorts that Merano and Environs have to offer. The varied pistes and state-of-the-art lifts at Merano 2000, Plan, Schwemmalm, San Vigilio and Val Senales are just a short journey away and have everything that skiers, tobogganers and cross-country skiers could wish for. The Alpine environment of the surrounding area is perfect for snowshoeing and back-country skiing too. And for a quick skate close by, the ice rink in the center of Tirolo is well worth a visit.
