Meet the culture of Val Gardena
Val Gardena used to be part of a territory called "Ladinia", and the traces of its two thousand years old history are still visible. "Ladin" is a Rhaeto-roman language that is still spoken in the four Ladinian valleys of the Dolomites. Ladin originated from a mix of Latin, spoken by the Roman conquerors, and Celtic (Rhaetian), the language of the territory's first inhabitants. This particular historical circumstance makes of Val Gardena the emblematic meeting point of many European cultures.
The preservation of traditions and cultural patrimony and especially of the Ladin language are a bulwark of this people. "Bën unì" = "Welcome": by listening to this arcane language or watching a day of celebration with the "Gardenesi" dressed in their traditional costumes, it is possible, as if by magic, to rediscover all the shine and glamour of the past.
Val Gardena is quickly becoming an important centre thanks to the many cultural projects that take place here. For example, in the last few years, it has hosted the Music Festival Val Gardena (in July and August), a series of classical music concerts by some of the most prestigious world orchestras. Thus, Val Gardena is becoming one of the major points of reference on the international music scene.
From December to April each year, this marvellous region invites all winter sports enthusiasts to explore its innumerable pistes and descents. Efficient modern lift systems and perfectly prepared slopes ensure a comfortable ski holiday in Val Gardena, world-renowned for its champions. Val Gardena has not only written history thanks to its winter sport champions as today it is still the annual meeting point of the world's elite.
With its connection to Dolomiti Superski, the world's largest ski carousel and the nearby Alpe di Siusi, Val Gardena is the eldorado for all winter sport lovers. Crossing borders on skis is normal in the Dolomites. With the Dolomiti Superski Skipass you can use all uphill lift facilities including 500 km of connected slopes around the Sella Group and a total of 1.220 km of slopes and 12 ski areas.
