The Glacier Grawend sits at 3210 metres overlooking the Val Senales/Schnalstal Valley. From the village of Maso Corto, the Funivia Ghacciao cable car transports skiers straight up to the glacier. At the top, there are eight kilometres of pistes (two red runs and three blue) and the Hotel Grawand with mountaintop dining and ski rental. The glacier's ski area is served by one chairlift and two drags. Each year, various national skiing teams come to the glacier for pre-season training. There are also five kilometres of Nordic ski trails and a large snowpark. The Nitro Snowpark, at 3200 metres, is equipped with an easy-line, medium-line, and pro-line.
