This region offers easy access to the sky scraping backdrop of the Dolomites. There are three resorts along the valley floor: Seleva is the best known, by both skiers and boarders, Ortisei is the main town and Santa Cristina is somewhere in the middle, both literally and figuratively. As well as the scenery, Seleva is known for its local crafts, woodcarving etc. are still big here – you might see some impressive wood carved, life sized animals round town. The skiable area surrounds all three towns – you can ski all the way to Cortina, which is 25kms and covers all sorts of terrain. For steeper sections and wild jumps board Val de Tita, for chutes try Piz Boe and for long open runs board Marmolada. The snowpark is by Seleda Plateau and has an 80metre half pipe.

The best time to visit is in February and or March.
