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 12-Dec-2013)
Our featured Italian resorts have enjoyed plenty of sunshine this week and good skiing on-piste, although some high traffic areas are becoming polished and icy.
Passo Tonale (50/200cm) has a fantastic early season snowbase and offers fast skiing on firmly packed pistes. However, consistent sunshine this week as made the off-piste patchy and hard in places.
There is also good coverage and hard-packed pistes on offer in Val Senales (20/280cm) but a lack of recent snowfall means the off-piste is to be avoided.
Some of the best skiing is on offer in Cervinia (40/185cm), which has provided excellent on-piste conditions all season. All 15 of their lifts are open as well as the links over to Zermatt.
Most of our other featured resorts in Italy are now also open but they are in need of some new snow to freshen up the solid pistes and variable off-piste.
European Weather Outlook
There is little sign of new snow this week in Europe with the sun set to continue warming the slopes. However, towards the end of the week cloud cover could return in France and bring some precipitation.
Light snow is also predicted for next weekend in Austria and Switzerland. Andorra is also expecting some light snowfall, around 5cm, next weekend but newly opened Borovets and Bansko in Bulgaria have no fresh snow forecast.
