Selva di Val Gardena
Sëlva is the last village in Val Gardena, and the most famous, too. It lies at 1500 m of altitude, and you must reach it if you are following the Sella Ronda circuit, since it passes in the middle of the village, among houses and hotels. The houses split the ski area in two parts: on one side, you’ll find the breath-taking slopes under the Dantercepies gondola lift, which goes up to Passo Gardena, while on the other side there are the slopes going down from Ciampinoi and Sella Pass. The first ones are quite technical, while the slopes starting from Sella Pass are easier. Selva ski lifts (a cable car, two gondola lifts, 16 chairlifts and 13 platter lifts) are rather modern, however every morning there is a queue in front of the two gondola lifts leaving from the village. Kids can learn to ski while playing in the park of Sëlva ski school, which is fenced and served by two magic carpets.
