WEsayThis resort has good family facilities and some enticing mountain restaurants. A convenient base from which to explore the Dolomites
Lying in the heart of the dramatic Dolomites, Val Gardena is famous for its World Cup ski races and Selva and S.Cristina are the best known resorts in this area, also known as the South Tyrol. The villages are enchanting with their traditional Austrian style architecture and Italian charm and enthusiasm.
The area has extensive snow making facilities, ensuring excellent cover throughout the season. Both villages have access to much of the Dolomites Superski area as well as the Sella Ronda - a 26km circular tour with well groomed pistes and modern efficient lift systems. This circuit is easily completed by anyone who has skiied for more than a couple of holidays, depending on fitness levels. For those needing to perfect their skills the excellent nursery slopes are just above the resort.
Apres ski in Val Gardena isn't half bad with numerous bars around the area and the atmosphere is always lively and informal. Bars and pubs have a warm and convivial atmosphere.
This years clients to Selva have been very complimentary about this pretty resort and particularly recommended the skiing on the Marmolada glacier and also enthused about the Ortisei area.
