Ski Field Review - Plose

So this past Sunday afternoon Joe and I went skiing with our friend Daniella-how awesome is it that we live somewhere that we can sleep in on a Sunday morning and decide to ski for the afternoon?  We went to Plose you can check it out at

Where is it?
Plose is just outside of Brixen/Bressanone (everything is in both Italian and german here). So we headed northeast up the valley on autostrada, got off at Brixen and climbed 7km up the mountain,  we were there in less than an hour.

Not small, it's part of dolomitisuperski but is not connected to any other fields, there are 40 km of piste including a 9km run from the top right down to the bottom of the cable car.  It's quite open (unlike oberreggen) with plenty of off-piste opportunities as well as a 'bavk country' area off to the side.

The snow? 
Was awesome!  Snowing on and off while we were there,  30 cm had fallen two days ago so while it wasn't super fresh there was still an opportunity to lay down a few fresh tracks.

The weather? 
Was not so hot. Visibility could be a bit patchy and it dnowed on and off but it did clear up at times, my goodness when it did it was beautiful!
The great thing? This meant there was no one there!  No queues,  empty runs, it was great.  Joe and I had the best time playing in the powder.

And the cost? 
Actually not bad, we were able to purchase three hour ski passes and joe even got a further discount for being a local, the two of us skied for just over 52 euro which is not bad at all.

We went home and wolfed down leftovers from the night before,  skiing is hungry work!
