Val Gardena Ski Resort

If a massive amount of terrain to explore, family-friendly on- and off-mountain amenities, and a culturally rich village is high on your ski vacation laundry list, then a Val Gardena is an easy choice. Val Gardena is among Europe’s best places to enjoy a traditional après-ski thanks to its wide open, sunny vistas and many alpine restaurants. 

Val Gardena is a ski resort with five distinct areas: Selva, Castel-rotto, S.Cristina, Ortisei and Siusi. The resort is connected with the Dolomiti Superski area and the nearby Alpe di Siusi, making it a great location for skiers and snowboarders looking to mix it up every day, and explore new terrain and different areas. All Val Gardena’s ski areas are a bit lower, between 3,900 feet and 5,500 feet in altitude, but the surrounding ski areas and off piste areas average about 8,000 feet, ensuring that good snow conditions are nearly certain on a Val Gardena ski vacation. This valley is world-famous for hosting high-profile events like Alpine Ski World Cup. Every type of skier or snowboarder will find terrain well-suited to their ability—from easy to extremely difficult—thanks to more than 100 miles of interconnected trails, accessed via 80-plus ski lifts. And cross-country skiers will be pleased with the region’s 71 miles of trails.

The town of Val Gardena is about 13 miles long and runs more or less from west to east from the narrow entrance to the valley at Ponte Gardena up to Passo Gardena and Passo Sella, at the north-east of the \"Südtirol\" Dolomites. Val Gardena is easily accessed, since it’s well connected via train with the rest of Italy and the larger Northern Europe region.

Ski Val Gardena 

As host of the annual Saslong Classic—a men’s World Cup downhill race—since 1969, experts are guaranteed some steep runs on a Val Gardena ski vacation. The Saslong course is among the five “classic” men’s downhill races, which include Kitzbuhel’s Hahnenkamm, Garmisch-Partenkirchen Kandahar and Wengen’s Lauberhorn. Beginner skiers should note: just because Val Gardena hosts a world-class race, doesn’t mean that you should shy away. Thirty percent of Val Gardena’s terrain is designated as beginner. Like the rest of Dolomiti Superski, Val Gardena is an intermediate skier and snowboarder’s paradise—with 60 percent of the terrain labeled blue or red.
