An active winter holiday in the Val Gardena ski area - Dolomiti Superski

With a fantastic mountain backdrop, reliable snow cover and perfectly groomed slopes, Val Gardena is one of the most popular winter sports locations in South Tyrol.


Ortisei is connected to the world's largest ski circuit, the Dolomiti Superski, with the famous Sellaronda, where endless fun on the slopes awaits skiers and snowboarders, whether beginners or professionals. A total of 1,200 km of slopes are available with a single ski pass. The nearby Alpe di Siusi is a true paradise for the whole family. Skiing on perfectly groomed slopes and having fun in the numerous Fun Parks is particularly popular with young ski enthusiasts.

Cross-country skiing

Cross-country skiers are sure to get their money's worth with the extensive network of perfectly groomed trails and will be amazed by the Dolomites’ unique, snow-covered winter landscape. Val Gardena and the Alpe di Siusi are part of the Dolomiti Nordic Ski network, the largest cross-country skiing circuit in Europe. The double-groomed trails on the sun-drenched Alpe di Siusi and the cross-country skiing centre on Monte Pana in the neighbouring community of Santa Cristina are particularly popular.


Villa Stella’s advantageous location, just 100 m away from the Rasciesa funicular, makes it easy to quickly reach the largely natural mountain pasture Rasciesa. From there, a 6 km long toboggan run leads through the snow-covered forest into the valley. Look forward to a breath-taking panoramic view of the entire Val Gardena and the surrounding Dolomite peaks, fast descents and top tobogganing fun for the whole family!

Winter hiking

In winter, Val Gardena is wrapped in a white coat of snow, which gives the surrounding peaks and forests a special magical feel. Those who want to explore the untouched nature at the foot of the Dolomites can enjoy complete tranquillity on a walk through the snow-covered meadows and forests or experience the unforgettable emotion of a snowshoe hike in the midst of the unique mountains. Villa Stella is in the best starting point for long winter hikes.


As a guest at Villa Stella, you’ll benefit from free entry to the Mar Dolomit indoor and outdoor swimming pool in Ortisei. Look forward to relaxation and water-based fun for young and old. The facility offers an indoor exercise pool, a heated outdoor saltwater pool, a jacuzzi, an adventure slide, a children's pool and a toddlers’ pool. There is also a relaxation area and a glazed steam cabin for relaxation.
