SNO-man says

Traditional village in the Schlern / Sciliar region but not lift-linked to the main Sella Ronda/Val Gardena area. Limited local skiing is dominated by a 2.5km black but the much more extensive runs of Alpe di Siusi are on the pass.

Conversely, in the warmest spring skiing months of March and especially April, a resort with cool and shady north facing trails will ensure you're not riding on slush, but benefitting from best late season snow. The best destinations have areas which face in all directions so that you're guaranteed greating conditions whatever the weather. Kastelruth has slopes facing ?.
