Mountain bike & cable car
South Tyrol is not particularly famous as a freeride Mecca. Nevertheless, you will find exciting trails, steep downhill passages and racy downhill routes – and there are plenty of transport options via cable car to get up the mountains.
Lifts and cable cars that are in operation for transporting people and bicycles, can be found mainly near Meran and Bozen. But also in other regions cable cars offer a "stairway to heaven" to reach the best freeride trails quickly and comfortably.
Some are open all year round, others during the (long) summer season. During the peak holiday season, bike transport may be limited at certain times of the day. It is best to inform yourself directly on site!
