Great powder. Sunny, -9C , no winds. Slopes are fun, great for kids and family runs together; but not for double diamond experts. We did the close wise and counter close wise Sellaronda runs that took us thru 11 towns and over 40km of piste each way. Lots of fun. Tons of Dopplemayer fast quads and sixes + very good telecabines. Great food as usually in this part of Italy with great prices as well. Start with a day or 2 in Verona and then straight up the Autostrada 22 to Val Gardean. Remember to spend a day in Balzano after the skiing on the way back to Milan on Venice airport...

Selva, Val Gardena, Italy is an amazing place winter & summer! A winter wonderland with good connections to all the ski runs in the area. One of my favourite places is Monte Pana in the next town of S. Cristina lovely easy runs for beginners or if like me you've never got past the intermediate stage. The scenery in this whole area is jaw dropping! The people are very friendly & the food is great. Accomodation varies from luxury hotels with 'wellness' centers to small & friendly hotels & Garni's (b&b's), there are also private apartments to rent. My husband & I also come here in the summer as it is a walker's paradise! The huts-mountain cafes- serve a variety of very tasty food summer & winter & your never far away from one. So if you dislike beach holidays, this is the place for you.

Everything is connected. Great slopes. tough ones as well as medium and light. Some of the pistes are the longiest I met. The Sellaronda is nice but crowdy. The pistes on Seceda are of the most beautiful I know.

Fantastic scenery & skiing; is there anywhere better? It may not have the extreme skiing of other big resorts though the variety and distances that can be travelled are un-paralleled. Try the Hidden Valley, the GS slope in La Villa and a trip to the top of the Maramalada glacier - all on top of the great skiing in the Selva vicinity.
