San Vigilio - Kronplatz
Ropeways to the summit of the Plan de Corones
Since it is very likely that thousands of spectators and bike fans will come to Plan de Corones to see the riders’ arrival first-hand, it is important for everybody to strictly follow the indications and advice of the organization committee in order to avoid unnecessary problems and to guarantee a secure development of the sporting event.
Spectators may use the following ropeways: Kronplatz 1+2 starting from Brunico/Riscone (ride takes about 15 minutes), Kronplatz 2000 starting from Brunico/Riscone (ride takes about 15 minutes), Olang 1+2 starting from Valdaora (ride takes about 15 minutes) and Ruis starting on the mountain pass Passo Furcia (ride takes about 6 minutes).
We advice you to use the ropeways starting from Brunico/Riscone and Valdaora since they are equipped with large car parks and are easily reachable from the main traffic routes. The cabin lift Ruis, on the other side, will be used primarily for transporting technical equipment as well as operatives, journalists, riders and accredited persons. Privates who wish to take this ropeway will have to undergo rigorous security checks and will therefore suffer some delay. In addition, the car parks on the Passo Furcia are going to be closed to all vehicles except to permit holders on the day previous to the stage and on the stage day.
It will be possible to reach the mountain pass Passo Furcia by taking a ropeway from Brunico/Riscone up to Plan de Corones and the Ruis cabin lift from Plan de Corones down to Passo Furcia. One should though take into account the difficulties to get back to the summit of the Plan de Corones.
On May 25th, the ropeways operate from 8.30 a.m. until 7.00 p.m. The ticket is 10,00 Euros and allows you to use the ropeways during all day.
