Ski holidays in Ortisei

The Sella Ronda: The biggest names in the Italian Dolomites - genuinely world-class skiing

Ortisei (AKA St Ulrich), the  truly picturesque old community and cultural centre of Val Gardena, can all too easily be overlooked by skiers based in Selva – especially those  intent on ticking off as many resorts as they can on the celebrated Sella Ronda tour. But they’re missing out on an intriguing and  delightful location, packed with fascinating architecture, often with ornate wood-carvings, as well as pretty churches, a charming pedestrian precinct, high-quality shops and good restaurants. They usually speak pretty good English which may be just as well as the main language here is Ladin – an intriguing mix of Latin and a regional Romansch dialect! Ortisei’s main ski area is at Alpe di Siusi – a wonderfully scenic area with a good network of lifts in the Punta d’Oro area, serving early intermediates. There are also gondola and funicular links with the Seceda area which itself links with St Christina and onwards to the extensive Selva lift network which includes Dantercepies and its new 10-seat gondola, Ciampinoi, Plan De Gralba and Passo Sella.
