The resort

Val Gardena is a gorgeous mountainside stretch, with a rich history of winter sports. With three inner resorts – Selva, Santa Cristina and Ortisei – Val Gardena has lots of runs to explore. It’s also part of the wider Dolomiti Superski area, so you can check out interconnecting pistes and powder on a much larger scale.

Enter the Dolomites

Step into snow-capped pine forests and alpine meadows. The traditional wood-carving village in the mighty Dolomites has a real range of runs due to its intertwining slopes and off-piste sections. You can cross borders on skis, and even witness the odd figure skating competition.

Snowboard in style

Perfect your jumps on the awesome terrain – it’s really the prime spot for snowboarders. Freestylers can hit the snow parks for a real test of endurance and skill, and the extensive stretch of ice and powder will keep you going for hours. With the huge range of red runs, you’ll be very well catered for if you’re an intermediate.

After hours

Selva Gardena is a particularly animated resort after the sun goes down, with its vibrant choice of bars and nightlife-friendly eateries. It wouldn’t be après-ski without cold pints and warming dishes, but there are also a few live music sessions to enjoy. The local pear brandy is a highlight, too.

The highlights

  • Enjoy spectacular scenes of the Sella Mountains.
  • You’ll have access to the Dolomiti Superski areas if you want to head further afield.
  • Snowboarding heaven in Selva Gardena.
