So what's it like?
In the heart of the Dolomites, the Val Gardena resorts of Selva and Ortisei have direct access to the extensive Dolomiti Superski area – the largest ski area in Europe.
The Sella Massif is arguably the most beautiful mountain range in Europe. Declared a UNESCO world heritage site in 2009, the pink and jagged peaks created the Dolomites’ famous ski circuit, the Sella Ronda. The pistes are well groomed and the ski area has a very efficient, fast and modern lift system. Selva is best if you’re an intermediate skier – you’ll be spoilt for choice with the range of open and wooded red runs, with some big verticals. But just 5km away in Ortisei less confident intermediates and beginners will find sunny open bowls, along with many cruisy scenic runs in the Alpe di Suisi ski area.
The traditional roadside town is part of the Süd Tirol region. Once part of Austria, you will find a lot of similarities in this resort to its neighbouring country including the language and its après scene. The town has an excellent range of après bars such as La Stua and Bar Saltos where staff wear traditional Austrian dress and local drinks are served – try a refreshing Austrian Radler or a warming Italian Bombardino.
Selva’s groomed slopes host the FIS Ski World Cup races where thousands of the world’s best skiers have competed, racing up to speeds of 105mph. The races take place on the legendary Saslong slope in the shadow of the mountain peak and have been an important event in the area since the 1970s.
