La Villa is in the Alta Badia ski area, which is lift-linked into the Sella Ronda circuit at Colfosco and Corvara. It can be a bit of a long haul to get onto the bigger circuit. The Alta Badia area has 130km of runs that best cater to beginners and intermediates. La Villa is an attractive village in a lovely valley position, with top scenery, but the snow can be unreliable. It makes a great base for accessing the local area, but to complete the Sella Ronda circuit can take a while. There can also be crowds at weekends, as people flood in from the major north Italian cities.
