Cross-country skiing in Selva Gardena

The Vallunga offers a great landscape for cross-country skiers in the Natural Park Puez – Odle, just north-east of Selva Gardena.

Only 15/20 minutes on foot from the parish church of Selva Gardena. You can park your car behind the training centre of the Carabinieri (parking place La Ciajota). In the near vicinity you will find the branch of the ski and cross-country school of Selva Gardena, which also serves as a meeting place and as a storage facility. A cross-country ski hire centre is also on site.

In the first, flat part of the Vallunga there are short cross-country slopes, identified by green and blue signs. Ideal for beginners.
For experienced cross-country skiers there is a 5 km red training slope, which has also been approved for national cross-country races.
If you're looking for a longer cross-country hike (black sign), the whole valley can be crossed on a 10 km itinerary until the “Pra da Rì“ field against the stunning backdrop of mountains. 


Cross-country skiing in S. Cristina

Monte Pana is an ideal starting point for varied cross country excursions with a spectacular panorama.

For demanding cross-country skiers we recommend the 7,5 km "Val Scura" ski run. For hobby cross-country skiers we recommend the 5,2 km "Palusc" ski run, which leads you up and down to the fantastic "Palusc" meadow.

The Monte Pana cross-country ski runs are characterized by challenging ascents and thrilling descents. The detailed signposting on the over 30 km ski runs allows you to change route at any time and to arrive easily at the starting point.


Cross-country skiing in Ortisei and on the Alpe di Siusi:

The true cross-country paradise of Ortisei lies on the Alpe di Siusi, where the sun shines all day long. An aerial cableway and and a gondola lift quickly take you to the 80 km long cross-country tracks at an altitude of 1.700-2.000 m. Regardless of the level of the individual cross-country skier, everyone can enjoy a breathtaking view and slopes encompassing all levels.

When you come from Ortisei the ideal starting point for all cross-country tracks is the Hotel Sole.

Right near the mountain station of the gondola you'll find a ski hire centre and an information office of the Ski and Cross-Country School Ortisei. They organise private lessons and even day trips.
