Just back from a great week's skiing trip to Selva. Stayed in the Continental with a group of 12 others, everyone thought the hotel was of a good standard with nice rooms and good food. Ideally located next to the Dantecepies gondola and opposite the nursery slopes. The only problem was the very steep walk down to the town, a good 10 minute walk down but 30 minutes back up! No taxis could be found at night and as there was very little going on in the town, with only 3/4 bars, we stayed in the hotel bar most nights - reasonably priced for a hotel but not cheap and they closed up at 12ish.
The skiing in the Sella Ronda is excellent for good intermediates, the snow is well looked after and the views are magnificent. Had a day trip out to Cortina, which convinced me that I wouldn’t be booking a week's holiday there! 4 smallish and disjointed ski areas across two sides of the valley. Also did the "hidden valley" just off the Sella Ronda – it’s not worth the effort with too much queuing for taxis, the cablecar and the horse drawn pull on the way back - the run down the hidden valley was only average.
Overall, I would stay at the Hotel Continental again but probably wouldn’t go back to Selva as it is too quiet, but I would certainly go back to the Sella Ronda area.
