The Sellaronda challenge is on!
Ready for the Sellaronda challenge?
Sellaronda: A one-of-a-kind circular tour around the Sella group, stretching for 40 kilometres through the snow of Val Gardena/Gröden, framed by the soul-stirring scenarios of the Dolomites. The Sellaronda tour encompasses the four resorts of Val Gardena/Gröden, Corvara, Arabba and Canazei, perfectly connected to each other by an extensive network of state-of-the-art skilifts. Sellaronda is a compelling challenge that draws thousands of snow junkies every year: the tour can be completed in ca. 3 hours, net of waiting times at the lifts and pauses in the huts along the way. It is advisable to have an early start and finish in the early afternoon, to make sure you catch the last lifts back to the valley station. Getting back takes approximately 90 minutes. Nadia, Elisa and Stefanie at Hotel La Pineta are at your disposal for any further information about Sellaronda.
Additional ski slopes in Val Gardena/Grödnertal
During the winter months, Gröden offers a diverse range of ski slopes, extending beyond the famous Sellaronda circuit. These include:
- “Saslong”: The venue of the annual men’s World Cup ski races, Saslong is probably the most famous slope in Gröden. Beginning on the sunny slopes of Ciampinoi, it descends over steep slopes into the valley.
- “La Longia”: This ten-kilometre-long ski slope is one of the longest runs in the Dolomites, leading from Seceda to St. Ulrich.
- “Pilat”: Previously a natural snow run from Alpe di Siusi/Seiser Alm to St. Ulrich, Pilat has in recent years become a spectacular and excellently groomed forest run, offering unique views across Val Gardena/Grödnertal.
- “Gardenissima”: The panoramic downhill run Gardenissima, the venue for the ski race of the same name – the longest giant slalom in the world – takes place at the end of each winter season. Gardenissima leads from the wide sunny slopes of the Seceda past many small mountain huts to the run-out slopes at Col Raiser.
- “Bravo”: Located in the Mt Pana ski resort in St. Christina, the giant slope “Bravo” on Mt Sëura features a 2,200-metre-long run. Beginning at the foot of the Sassolungo/Langkofel, it leads through dense, snow-covered forests.
