Italy, The Dolomites Ski Area
Set in the Südtirol’s charming Gardena valley, Selva is a gateway to the famous Sella Ronda skiing circuit, where you can ski around the gigantic limestone monoliths of the Gruppo Sella. The Sellaronda: (26 km – 16 miles) is a delightful and not particularly challenging tour which can be achieved fairly easily in a day. Selva, part of Dolomiti Superski, the largest lift complex system in Europe, combines the best of Italian and South Tyrolean traditions for a unique ski holiday experience. It offers unbeatable quantity and variety of skiing right on its doorstep, a paradise for dedicated skiers of all levels. The picturesque old town of Ortisei, the principal community and cultural centre of Val Gardena, with its own small ski area, is both chic and traditional, with a picturesque town centre. Ortisei links easily with Selva’s pistes whilst its local Alpe di Siusi ski area is also well-known for its cross-country trails and a thrilling six kilometre toboggan run. Val Gardena is the venue for one of the early World Cup meetings each season. The Saslong downhill run to Santa Cristina - with its famous "camel bumps" - is the scene of the men's downhill on Mount Ciampinoi.
