I travelled to Val Gardena just before Christmas, 2006, to first of all try out the new low cost transfers from Verona Brescia but also to visit Val Gardena for the first time. I was a little concerned that going so early in the season would mean that the piste conditions wouldn't be at their best (especially given the generally bad start to the European ski season) but I was pleasantly surprised to find that not only was the Sella Ronda open but that the snow conditions were excellent thanks to low early-season temperatures and almost 90% snowmaking. There had also been some fresh snow a few days before I arrived so while other resorts in the Alps were still green, Val Gardena and it's surrounding resorts were all white and wintry.
The scenery was stunning wherever we went and there seemed to be miles and miles of well prepared pistes plus numerous mountain huts to enjoy the great food the region has to offer.
I will definitely be going back, hopefully with all the family, to explore further the beautiful ski area as well as the charming and interesting villages.
