Railway Station Versciaco

Phase 1: Groundbreaking Day

The first turf for the new Versciaco–Monte Elmo station was cut on 19.10.2013. The construction of this building brings closer together the two ski resorts of Plan de Corones and Three Peaks Dolomites, so now holidaymakers staying in the Val Pusteria region can enjoy a very special holiday experience with access to downhills of over 200 kilometres.

Phase 2: Construction of the Station

Construction work on the Versciaco–Monte Elmo railway station progressed rapidly and on schedule. The Val Pusteria cycle path was relaid and it reopened at the beginning of July. Moving the path created plenty of space for the new railway track.

Phase 3: Laying the Railway Track

The winding railway track was relocated and extended for a section of just under 900 metres. This work could not be completed while normal rail operations continued. So the line had to be closed from 22 September until 2 November 2014.

Phase4: Completion

On November 29 2014, the Versciaco–Monte Elmo station was completed on schedule for the ski opening of the Three Peaks Dolomites ski resort. The opening ceremony for the new station took place on December 14 and rail operations officially commenced on that date.

FAQ

Where can I accommodate my skis on the train?

The skis can be stored easily and quickly in Ski Pustertal Express. Ski stands have been installed in the wagons for this purpose. They must be flipped open manually and provide space for several pairs of skis.

Can I store my skis temporarily in the railway station?

Yes. In both railway stations of Perca / Ried and Versciaco/Monte Elmo you can find your own ski depots. There, the skis can be stored and placed for temporary storage. Furthermore, there is a ski service, ski rental and Wi-Fi as well as dining facilities. In the railway station Versciaco/Monte Elmo there is also a supermarket.

How long does it take to go from the railway station to the lift station?

The two stations are in the immediate proximity to the ski lifts. The ski lifts of the Plan de Corones ski resort are located directly across from the railroad track and just 10 meters away. The valley station Monte Elmo in Versciaco can also be reached very quickly and easily, and is only about 100 meters away from the platform.

May I use the services only together with the Dolomiti Superski Card?
