Skiing around the gigantic Gruppo Sella in the Dolomites is an extraordinary pleasure for every skier

A very special highlight for skiers in the Val Gardena valley is the ski circuit round the Sella alpenstock. In one day only you can do the so-called Sellaronda, in clockwise or anticlockwise direction.

The Sellaronda in clockwise direction starts in Selva Gardena with the Costabella ski lift from the centre of the village. This is how you reach the Dantercepies funicular, leading to the Passo Gardena. From here you proceed to Corvara in Alta Badia. The Boé funicular takes you back to the mountains, making you reach the Campolongo pass. The next place you approach is Arabba, from where you take the Portavescovo lift to Pont de Vauz. Then you proceed to the Passo Pordoi. With the Belvedere funicular you reach the starting point of the long Belvedere downhill run, taking you down to Pian Frataces, from where you reach the Passo Sella or Col Rodella. A long downhill run takes you back to Selva Gardena in the Val Gardena valley.

Some advice: For doing the Sellaronda condition is required, don't do the Sellaronda if you are a beginner. It is recommendable to start the ski circuit early in the morning, in order not to risk closed lift facilities in late afternoon. For the rides on skis and ski lift rides, schedule about 2 hours each. The Valle Stella Alpina and the Porta Vescovo slopes complete the comprehensive offer round the Gruppo Sella. In case of adverse weather conditions, the ski circuit remains closed.
