Ski resort Val Gardena - Alpe di Siusi
From the valley floor below, the jagged peaks of the Sella massif, the towers of the Sassolungo and Fermeda peaks and the Odle mountains all seem within easy reach. With 175 km of slopes, Val Gardena is not only the largest but also one of the most famous ski areas in South Tyrol. It became famous for the Ski World Championships held there in 1970. Today, cable cars and lifts bring visitors directly from the village centre up to the mountains where they can tackle slopes of all difficulty levels and with connections to the Dolomiti Superski carousel. From the huts, guests can enjoy culinary delicacies and panoramic views of the Dolomites. The famous "Sellaronda ski circuit" can be started from all Val Gardena villages. So too can the less well-known but equally diverse "Gherdeina Skiring" from the Alpe di Seceda mountain hut to Dantercepies. Only bold skiers dare to descend the steep "Saslong" slope on the Ciampinoi, while the 10.5 km "La Longia" route from Seceda to Ortisei/St. Ulrich requires good fitness.
