Visitor Reviews of Val Gardena
Steve S from Ireland writes:
Stayed in Santa Christina last week in January this year. Have skied in 8 resorts now including North Amaerica and have to say I was incredibly impressed with this one. The slopes are perfectly groomed every morning, the on-piste restaurants/bars offer excellent foods at reasonable prices, the atmosphere is friendly and adult; not so many children around which I liked.
The variety of slopes is incredible with plenty of fun parks/bordercross and in general just different things to do than just ski up and down! The sense of travel is second to none, we would often go to a different area for the day and then hit a few bars on the way back.
Apres-ski in the snow bar every evening was stomping with a good mix between German and Anglophone music. Not much in Santa Christina besides the snow bar but a short free bus ride away (2km) Selva has a bit more going on with at least three decent bars with live music.
Bit of a pain to get to/from Ireland but worth the 3 hour drive from Milan. I wouldn't recommend it for beginners (not many progression slopes and the slopes back to town are tricky in the evenings) but for intermediates and up it's a great place.
