With their key figures, the "ERTA" can be quite impressive and does not need to fear comparisons with other prestigious racing circuits. The start is at 1.605 m above sea level on the Piz de Plaies and is served by the same named cable car. The goal, on the other hand, is 1.200 m on the "Pedagà" slope and thus has a height difference of 405 m with a length of 1.325 m.
Also impressive is the slope, with an average of 32% with a lowest inclination of 22% and a maximum inclination of 61% on the "Gran Para" slope in the middle part of the track. On the "ERTA" track, which was built in 2003 on the initiative of winter pioneer Erich Kastlunger, has hosted some editions of the FIS European Cup, both GS and SL. Among others, Marcel Hirscher (AUT), Marcus Sandell (FIN), Alexander Ploner (ITA), Florian Eisath (ITA) and Kalle Palander (FIN) were the winners.
Since the winter season 2022/23 the ski resort Kronplatz has an impressive innovation to offer, which makes the hearts of skiers beat faster: the Sorega slope. This challenging black run is a variant of the popular World Cup slope Erta.
With a length of 1,450 meters and a difference in altitude of 435 meters, the Sorega slope is a challenge for every skier who wants to prove their skills. What makes the slope truly remarkable is its maximum incline of an incredible 70%. Breathtaking and fast-paced descents that test the limits of skiing are guaranteed. The Sorega slope is a true jewel in the Kronplatz ski area and offers experienced skiers the opportunity to put their skills to the test and experience the thrill of the steep descent. The scenery around the slope is just as impressive as the descent itself, as it is framed by the majestic peaks of the Dolomites.
