Ski Slopes in Val Gardena in South Tyrol

Ski slopes in the various towns of the Val Gardena valley


  • In local part “Überwasser” of ortisei near the Val Gardena river and easily accessible from the main square. Nearby is the ski school which offers easy beginner runs “Palmer” and “Furdenan”.

  • The “Piz Ronce”, FIS-Slalom slope of the world championship in 1970 has a 600 meter long lift that lies on the same side of the mountain, somewhat to the west.

  • Directly from the Seiser-Alm-Seilbahn (cable car) mountain station (2005 m) average skiers can take the new slope “Pilat” back to Ortisei. Length: 6 km, altitude change 800 m.

  • From the Seiser-Alm mountain station facing southwest one can behold the ski lift “Ludy”, “Sanon” and “Leo Demetz” as well as the chair lift “Sonne” (sun). One can also return with the “Sonne“. Average skiers and kids do splendidly on these fairly steep, sunny slopes with lovely mountain backdrop.

  • The ski slopes to the far south of the Seiser Alm (Goldknop/Saltria – Florianlift/Zallinger) and the ski slopes on the west end of the Alm (Kompatsch/Panorama/Puflatsch) offer four runs of all difficulty levels. They reach as far as Monte Piz – Stegerlift – Paradisolift and return over the Paradisoabfahrt – Monte Piz – Skilift Sanon –Skilift Leo Demetz – chair lift Sonne all the way back to the cable car.

  • In case one desires more variety and a connection to the valley floor one can take the slope from the mountain station “Florian Lift” (2140 m) on northeast side towards Monte Pana. (Also includes a short incline.)

    Caution: the slope is not maintained so without maintenance it can be hazardous. It is fairly steep and can be a chalenge for average skiers without experience in deep snow.

  • The “Raschötzer” run (8 km, altitude change 900  m) begins five minutes south of the Raschötzer mountain station. For a change of scenery, this is a very pretty forest run ideal for above-average skiers. Once at the middle station, Seceda-Seilbahn, (with connections to the Seceda-Alm or Ortisei) the path merges into the “Nogler-Abfahrt” and finishes at the valley station Seceda-Seilbahn.

  • After the cable car mountain station “Seceda” (2450 m) comes the well known Nogler-Abfahrt (downhill run) over the Cucasattel, past the middle station Furnes and Annatal to return to the valley station. Altitude change 1282 m, length 8.5 km. On the way to Furnes for secure skiers and from then on, above average skiers.

Santa Cristina

  • From the Seceda mountain station there is a major run leading through open, sunny slopes all the way to the valley floor of Cicles and eventually S. Cristina. Length 7.5 km, altitude change 1090 m.

  • In the Seceda-Alm area, two double chairlifts will be introduced by Col Raiser, “Fermeda” and “Catores”, three lifts, “Cuca”, “Cisles” and “Juac” as well as a crossover connection, “Col Raiser” with numerous different routes. Across the Seceda or possibly the adjoining cable car “Ruaccia” and chairlift “Sochers” one can reach the “Ciampinoigipfel” and get to the Men’s World Championship Downhill run.

  • Above S. Cristina lies the idyllic high plateau of “Monte Pana” – right under the Langkofel. This is ideal for children and beginners who use the lifts “Tschucky”, “Culac”, “Puntea”, “Janon”, and “Parallel”. More advanced skiers may take two particularly pretty directions from the “Mont de Sëura” point (2056 m), accessible halfway with double chairlifts.

Selva Gardena

  • In the town alone is where beginners can practice ideally.

  • From Selva Gardena one reaches the ski slopes of Dantercepies (previous host run of the Women’s World Championship route), the Grödner Joch, as well as the neighboring Gader Valley.

  • The Ski area of Ciampinoi is accsesable by the Ciampinoi cable car. The fantastic slopes of “Plan de Gralba” and Sellajoch have about 18 lifts, all different levels and are endless with kilometers of high alpine landscape. This is directly under the Dolomite boulders.

Sella Ronda

The Dolomites provide an endless resource for people fascinated with the “white” sport of either Nordic or Alpine skiing. The famous “Sella Ronda” and surrounding area as well as the Sellastockes range where all the Ladinish valleys meet, is often frequented by skiers.

Included in this largest ski organization in the world are the provinces: Trentino, Belluno and South Tyrol’s eleven ski resorts adding up to a total of 1100 km of slopes and over 400 lifts.
