The ski resort of Val Gardena-Alpe di Siusi boasts 175 kilometres of slopes to suit every taste, and 80 cable cars for safe transportation: The ultra-modern cable cars are fitted with state of the art child safety equipment, and thanks to the sheer immensity of the ski resort, waiting times at the cable car stations are never long. The ski resort of Val Garden-Alpe di Siusi is the largest resort of the Dolomiti Superski area.
Alpe di Siusi is the place to be for a beginner in the big Val Gardena, where excellent nursery slopes join perfect next-step beginner pistes, a safe environment, and fabulous mountain scenery (with very few trees to collide with)… Choose from two nursery areas – one above Ortisei and one at the gondola station of the lift from Siusi, then move up to tame blues like Panorama 14, which wind about the resort like spaghetti strands…
75% of the piste map is rated intermediate, excellent news if you sit somewhere in the middle of the skiing ladder. It’s always a joy to be able let loose and know you’re unlikely to stumble across a run that’s out of your depth. If the well of blue and red trails here starts to run dry, take a day trip to the Sella Ronda tour further down the valley, a famous 50km circuit which takes you through dozens of villages and hamlets and four different regions.
Apart from one short black run on the Puflatsch, there’s little in the way of expert trails here, and veteran skiers rarely stray to this side of the Val Gardena – except for sightseeing. If you’re here accompanying a less accomplished skier, test out the awesome auto-timed speed-ski track from the top of the Punta d’Oro (Goldknopf) lift – a time under 55mph means you should try again… Speed also counts on the three resort slalom courses. Impress your intermediate mates on these, then part ways to tick the Sella Ronda tour off your bucket list.
