Your winter holiday in the Alpe di Siusi/Val Gardena skiing area in the Dolomites, an experience for young and old!
Winter in South Tyrol combines scenic and sporting experiences with enjoyable moments. The mountain panorama surrounding the Alpe di Siusi/Seiser Alm is characterised by the Sasso Lungo, Sasso Piatto, Sciliar and Rosengarten Dolomite peaks.
Skiing and snowboarding are available on the slopes of the largest mountain plateau in Europe, the Val Gardena/Alpe di Siusi (Gröden/Seiser Alm) skiing region (www.dolomitisuperski.com ). You’ll get your money’s worth on the blue, red and black slopes, as you weave your way on 175 kilometres of slope into the heart of the Dolomites. Conversely, freestylers can explore the Snowpark Alpe di Siusi King Laurin, which is famous far beyond the national borders. If you’d like to do without your car for a change, only a few minutes’ walk brings you to the bus stop where you can take the convenient shuttle service to the Alpe di Siusi Orbit.
Our tip for somewhat more experienced skiers is the Sellaronda, which you can start straight from the Alpe di Siusi Orbit but then need to allow yourself a little more time. Another option is to drive straight to Val Gardena and set off from there on the somewhat shorter version.
Cross-country skiing on the Alpe di Siusi/Seiser Alm
Cross-country skiing is available on the sunny cross-country skiing trails of the Alpe di Siusi where around 80 kilometres of cross-country trails with various levels of difficulty await you. Whether skating or classic, beginner or experienced, young or old, everyone gets their money’s worth. The Alpe di Siusi is a paradise for cross-country skiers.

Snowshoe hiking over the magnificent Alpe di Siusi/Seiser Alm landscape
The skiing tours and snowshoe hikes are a magnificent experience and give you the opportunity to admire the beauty of the South Tyrolean winter landscape along the way.
Those coming to the Sciliar region to hike in winter also find an infinite number of hiking trails and places to stop for refreshment on the Alpe di Siusi and in the surrounding towns and village, as enjoyment should never be neglected on holiday either.
Luging fun in the winter landscape
Luging on the Alpe di Siusi is lots of fun. Both professionals and families get their money’s worth and have several luge runs to choose from. Our tip for our young guests: Castelrotto has a small Winter Fun Park offering skiing, tobogganing and ice skating.
A horse-drawn sleigh ride over the Alpe di Siusi or the Castelrotto Christmas Market
Should you desire something more romantic, you can take an unhurried horse-drawn sleigh ride through the snow-covered Alpe di Siusi landscape.
At Christmas you can visit the fairy-tale Christmas market in Castelrotto or one of the larger Christmas markets in the nearby towns.
