Val Gardena Ski Areas

The skiing in the Val Gardena is located above the three main villages in the valley: Ortisei (St Ulrich); Santa Cristina (St Christina); and Selva (Wolkenstein).

Skiing in Ortisei

The skiing above Ortisei is principally located to the south on the Alpe di Siusi plateau (known as the Seiseralm in German). This is a beautiful area full of fabulous scenery and short intermediate runs, but can get crowded in high season. On the other side of the village there is a gondola which links in to the ski area to the south of Santa Cristina and provides a long red run back to Ortisei.

Skiing in Santa Cristina

Santa Cristina is linked both to Ortisei via the area to the south of the village and to Selva via the area on the other side of the valley. The Col Raiser - Seceda area to the south is a wide-open snow bowl with plenty of intermediate runs but which can be inhospitable in bad weather. To the north a few tough runs back to the village include the famous World Cup race course, the link to Selva and a semi-"hidden" beginners' area.

Skiing in Selva

Selva is the best-known of the three resorts - certainly on the English-speaking markets - and provides access into the Sella Ronda circuit around the Sella Massif, which is one of the most popular ski excursions in the Dolomites. The slopes to the south of the town connect to Santa Cristina and to the Passo Sella and the area above Canazei, while the slopes to the north connect to the Passo Gardena and the Corvara - Alta Badia ski area.
