Winter sports

Infinite pleasures for winter sports enthusiast beyond compare can be experienced in the Val Gardena valley, in the heart of the Dolomites, that wrote ski history

In the Val Gardena, not only ski history, but also film history was written. On the one hand, winter sports champions such as Isolde Kostner, Peter Runggaldier and Carolina Kostner were born in this place. A highly particular experience for skiers is the Sellaronda, a ski circuit that takes you on skis round the Sella mountain massif in one day only. Let's have a closer look at this fascinating Dolomites valley.
