One absolute skiing highlight is that the four-star s Granvara Relais & Spa Hotel lies directly alongside the Sella Ronda in the Dolomiti Superski Resort of Val Gardena-Seiser Alm. No car, no stress: simply set out with your skis direct from the hotel into unlimited skiing fun with 1200 perfectly groomed kilometres of slopes.
The infamous Sasslong downhill starts just 150 metres from the hotel.The FIS alpine skiing world cup races take place here every December. Ski in the tracks of top athletes and swoosh neatly over the well-prepared snow. The imposing wintry panorama of the UNESCO world natural heritage site of the Dolomites is incomparable.
Relaxation in the area’s ski huts is also part of a perfect day’s skiing. Ultra-cosy parlours, hearty Tyrolean fare and sunny terraces are ideal for skiers to while away a few pleasant hours.
You can also glide gently through the winter landscape on the numerous cross-country skiing trails in the Dolomiti Superski resort. And in addition to cross-country skiing, snowshoeing and winter hiking provide some welcome variety.
It is also possible to enjoy ice skating and Nordic walking in this snowy paradise. After an exciting time in the snow, the shopping in the centre of the village of Wolkenstein in Val Gardena really helps to end the day in style.
