Whether you’re going as a family, a group of friends or if it’s just you and the slopes, you’ll find something to interest you over Easter in Val Gardena... Hopefully with the sun on your back too!
Conditions improve the earlier you get out in the morning and the higher you up you go. The Seceda is an area above St Cristina that’s good to exhaust early on in the day as it can get slightly over-worked. If you have the Dolomiti Superski pass, the Sella Ronda should be tackled with a prompt start, not least because it can take six hours to do the full green or orange circuit. The pass also means you can get to some serious altitude on the Marmolada Glacier over towards Arabba.
The energy of the sun is matched well by the après ski so if you decided to end the day slightly early, there will be a deckchair and a drink waiting for you at one of the many mountain-side bars. Café Andy in St Cristina or Café Mozart in Selva should happily satisfy any Easter sweet tooths out there. There’s always the opportunity for a shop, an ice skate, a game of curling or even a horse-carriage ride from Monte Pana. The swimming pool in Ortisei is near to a choice of restaurants and bars. Make use of the weather and book yourself in for a truly unforgettable tandem paragliding experience, showcasing the Dolomites at its best from Ciampinoi, Seceda or Dantercepies. Not only do you have the walks in and around the villages with some cultural architecture and sights but the snowshoeing activities and walks over the naturally protected Puez-Odle and Sciliar-Catinaccio parks with fill the camera film right up.
