Enjoy skiing, enjoy the Val Gardena winter

Countless regular guests are of one mind: Winter in Val Gardena/Selva is winter is at its very best. The Dolomites tower majestically toward the blue skies, while the slopes, trails, hiking paths and toboggan runs weave their way through the snow-blanketed fairy-tale countryside and the huts on the slopes and the roadsides tempt you in for a taste of their homemade treats.

On your skiing holiday, Selva Val Gardena is a great starting point to discover one of the highlights of the Dolomites: The Sella. You can ski around the mighty mountain massif, the Sellastock, either clockwise or counter-clockwise and cross through a number of the ski resorts of the Dolomiti Superski area, largest ski complex in the world, en-route. Totalling 1,200 km of perfectly groomed slopes bordered by traditional ski huts and surrounded by a breathtaking panorama, it attracts beginners and experts alike to the Dolomites. Special course offers for children and families are just one of the professional services offered by the ski schools in the area.

Off-piste, cross-country skiing fans will find numerous challenges and the joy of nature rolled into one. Classic and skating trails, high trails and loop-routes make the ruggedly romantic Vallunga valley and the sun-kissed Alpe di Siusi a much-favoured destination for cross-country skiers. In Val Gardena, numerous winter-walking trails and snow-shoe routes are signposted: Enjoy the unique experience of nature, the still silence and the crystal-clear mountain air. Or why not head out on a tobogganing party with friends or family? With so many toboggan slopes, complete with wayside restaurant and eateries, Val Gardena guarantees masses of variety for your day out in the snow.
