Val Gardena - Sellaronda - Alpe di Siusi
One of the best things about ski holidays that are taken in the Dolomites is the spectacular scenery that this particular mountain range affords. Forming a part of the Limestone Southern Alps, the peaks and valleys are among the most picturesque in Europe, not to say the world. Therefore, it is hardly surprising to anyone who has taken their ski holidays in the Dolomites before that, since 2009, the entire area has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage site.
In terms of the facilities available for skiers, the area of Val Gardena is second-to-none with some 175km of slopes all easily accessed by the numerous lifts and cable cars across the valley. Cross country skiers are also well catered for with in excess of 100km of runs available to use. Furthermore ski holidays in the Dolomites are guaranteed good snow. No less than 90 per cent of the slopes in Val Gardena are able to rely on their own snow making facilities, if needed. The runs also have a good range of difficulty ratings which means that ski holidays in the Dolomites will suit beginners, families and parties with a range of differing skiing abilities.
Santa Cristina is located in the hearth of the Val Gardena / Alpe di Siusi ski region, one of the most spectacular areas in the Dolomites and a superb skiing destination.

This circular route has been designed to provide an exhilarating experience to skiers of all ages and abilities.
