Selva Gardena Resort Info
Selva Gardena skiing
Selva is near enough joined to neighbouring Santa Cristina, together making up the largest resort on the Sella Ronda circuit with 175km of runs. It's a big domain with a highly efficient lift system, 120km of snowmaking coverage, great scenery and generally good value. Once on the slopes, intermediates will be in their element Experts might be best heading to Arabba for decent challenges, but beginners should find enough to play with. The downside, however, is that long lift journeys are required to get at the very best Sella Ronda slopes.
Selva Gardena ski resort
The resort itself is quite sprawling and there can be quite a lot of traffic. However, Selva boasts a wide range of accommodation, good après-ski and great restaurants both on and off the mountain.

Snow Overview - Italy (snow news updated 09-Dec-2013)
The weekend was generally a sunny and mild one across Italy, with no fresh snow and fairly high temperatures for the time of year. The best skiing is at high altitude resorts such as Cervinia (40/185cm). Their upper slopes are in good condition at the moment although there hasn’t been any significant fresh snow since 21st November. All 15 of their lifts were open on Monday 9th December with the links over into Zermatt available too.
It’s a similar story at Livigno (14/84cm). All 30 of their lifts were running on Monday and although the snow base isn’t huge they have plenty of snow for on-piste skiing. It will take some further new snow to freshen up the off-piste areas and at the moment there isn’t any forecast.
European Weather Outlook
The sunny weather looks set to continue in Europe with France, Switzerland and Austria all expecting clear skies and dry days throughout next week. Temperatures could also rise to above 5C in some places.
While very little snow is expected to fall anywhere in Europe this week Bulgaria could receive light snow during the middle of the week in preparation for opening day at Bansko next weekend. There is also some much-needed light snow forecast for Oppdal in Norway.
