In 1958 Elsa Pfeifhofer opened the Prati di Croda Rossa Mountain Shelter.
1 year later, in 1959, the mountain shelter was enlarged.
In the beginning there was only the own material ropeway. In 1965 the first basket lift to the Croda Rossa was built.
1966 the Prati di Croda Rossa Mountain Shelter was extended for overnight guests.
In 1983 the hut was qualitatively and quantitatively extended.
The cable car company also modernized the basket lift with a chair lift.
10 years later, in 1993, the cable car company has realized a 6-seater cable car instead of the chair lift.
In 2019 Marc Pfeifhofer, grandson of Elsa Pfeifhofer, continued the family history on the Croda Rossa and built six chalets next to the Prati di Croda Rossa Mountain Shelter.
Local companies were chosen for the construction and materials from the surrounding area were used. The chalets are Klimahaus A, are heated with regional pellets and use electricity from South Tyrolean renewable energy.
