Val Gardena, Italy

If this is your first visit to The Val Gardena you might find yourself more than a bit confused upon arrival.  You might even feel that your travel agent, tour operator, bus driver or whatever, made the wrong turn somewhere down the line and sent you to the wrong destination. All along you thought you were going to Italy, and lo and behold here you are in a resort where everyone around you is speaking German.

What's going on here anyway? What's going on is that you are in Italy's Sud Tirol
(South Tirol) which was once, not so very long ago, an intricate part of Austria.

And the locals are speaking German because their grandfathers spoke German, their fathers speak German and, naturally enough, they speak German too.

Oh they speak Italian too, and a very old language called Ladinsch, plus a huge number are familiar with English, but make no mistake. In this multi lingual valley, German is the language of choice. Austrian food and culture come to the fore here as well, and one will likely find more wiener schnitzel than spaghetti on the menu.

The Gardena Valley stretches placidly from its almost plain- like origin at the autobahn which connects Italy with Austria via the Brenner pass, and then ascends it's way to Selva just before it disappears behind the majestic peaks of this portion of the Dolomite range. On its way it cuts through the three main resorts which are the subject of this story. Ortisei, S. Cristina and Selva Gardena.

Here is where you have to make the first of a series of choices, and we are happy to tell you that in this executive decision process you virtually cannot screw up. You can stay where you like and ski where you like, and the only possible negative side to the outcome is that you can possibly bite off more ski terrain and resort possibilities than you can chew. There is that much skiing and that much selection and price variation to select from.
