The Obereggen is part of the Ski Center Latemar and is located in the heart of the Dolomites, which is part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site.
With 48 kilometres of pistes and 18 lifts, two sledge runs and a snow park, not to mention a children’s playground, Obereggen is a popular choice for families and winter sports enthusiasts.
There is also one of Italy’s biggest snowparks, the Obereggen snowpark, with ramps, kickers and halfpipes for the snowboarders do their turns, twists and flights, and an impressive 650 metres of freestyle piste.
Plus if you are not tired, why don’t you go there at night? At Obereggen every Tuesday, Thursday and Friday you can ski and sledge at the illuminated pistes, from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. Cool hum?
At the Obereggen Slopes, you can take a cable car that goes to Rifugio Epircher Laner Alm (1830m) in less than 15 minutes, where it has a lovely self-service restaurant and Après-ski bar.
Or you can take the lift chair that goes to Rifugio Oberholz Berghütte (2096m) which has a sunny terrace and a bar and restaurant (prior reservation) providing an unbelievable panoramic view.
From there you can descend back to Obereggen or go to the other direction and explore several different pistes reaching by lift chairs as well or skiing/snowboarding.
And if you are looking for children and families’ activities, there are 3 snow children parks in Latemar: Brunoland in Obereggen, Bip Club in Pampeago and Dragons Kingdom in Predazzo.

When I went to the region, we stayed 4 days in Predazzo (read more here) because it has easy to access the slopes of the Ski Center Latemar (read more here) and therefore, each day we went to a different ski resort entrance location.
The first day we went to the ski slopes with access through Predazzo and the next day through Obereggen.
Unfortunately the day we went to Obereggen was foggy, and we had little visibility, so I didn’t even go all the way to the top.
As I do not do any winter sports, I stayed at the restaurant for a long time while my friends were skiing and then I went down on a sledge a couple of times.
There are two toboggan pistes: Absam Slope with 750 metres and Obereggen Run with 2.5 km, which is also open in the evenings on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays from 7 p.m to 10 p.m.
