Val Gardena/Alpe di Siusi ski resort
Europe’s largest high-Alpine pasture
A skiing paradise at the heart of Schlern-Rosengarten Nature Park
The 2,414 metre high Schlern has long been associated with tales of magic beings: flying over the jagged peaks of the Euringer and Santner, their cackles are said to echo across the meadows and forests of Alpe di Siusi. Whether you believe it or not, the legend of the notorious Schlern Witches and their gatherings high up in the mountains continues to this day. Located next to Val Gardena at the heart of the Dolomites, this ski resort is not only the largest high-Alpine pasture in Europe but also a winter wonderland for families and children.
Equivalent in size to 8,000 football pitches, this popular Italian ski resort boasts flat, broad slopes, a kids’ fun park and plenty of room for practice. The high-Alpine pasture is surrounded by the Schlern, the Großer Rosszahn, the Roterdspitze and the Puflatsch.
Natural spectacle: Alpe di Siusi is situated in the western section of Schlern-Rosengarten Nature Park and features a fantastic variety of flora and fauna. The slopes are lined by a scattering of larches, Swiss pines, spruces and green alders that add a delightful dash of colour as you ski through this unique winter landscape.
A ski resort on Italy’s sunniest high-Alpine pasture
The Alpe di Siusi resort in the Dolomiti Superski ski region offers a superlative all-round skiing experience. Featuring 60 kilometres of sun-kissed slopes, a snow park that extends far beyond the borders of South Tyrol and a wide variety of easy to moderate ski runs, it boasts a truly unique appeal.
More to offer: in addition to enjoying a perfect winter day’s skiing on Europe’s largest high-Alpine pasture, visitors to Alpe di Siusi are also free to access the neighbouring Val Gardena resort with their ski pass. This opens the door to a total of 175 kilometres of slopes, 79 cable cars and lifts and a direct connection to the world-famous 26 kilometre Sellaronda circuit that leads around the Sella massif. And it’s well worth the effort: the stunning Alpine beauty of the Dolomites more than makes up for the stresses and strains of this physically demanding route.
Family first: boasting 300 days of sun per year and a wide variety of blue and red slopes, Val Gardena/Alpe di Siusi is an ideal resort for junior skiers. Terrific additional features such as child-friendly cable cars and lifts and wonderfully long flat slopes make this a particularly suitable destination for families in the Dolomites. And with a warm welcome assured at each of the resort’s 30 huts, Alpe di Siusi is the perfect retreat for young and old alike.
