The winter wonderland of Val Gardena - a dream holiday at Hotel Grones.

Snow-covered forests for hiking, perfectly groomed ski slopes and fun tobogganing for the whole family.


Come to Val Gardena and find 175 km of slopes and 80 modern lift facilities. But there’s more waiting for you: as the ski area with all its lift facilities and slopes belongs to the “Dolomiti Superski” ski resort, the biggest in the world, you can choose between a further 450 lift systems and more than 1.200 km of skilfully prepared slopes with the same ski pass. You couldn’t ask for more! And let us not forget the numerous cosy mountain huts you can make a re-invigorating stop at.

The Sella Ronda represents a one of a kind “Skitour-experience”! Skiing around the Sella massif is a unique adventure for adults and children alike.
Not to mention the so-called „Gardenissima“, the longest giant slalom competition that takes place on the Seceda-alp to celebrate the finish of the winter season. With its 6 km of slope, it is one of the most spectacular and challenging alpine races ever. If you want to show what you can do come and participate regardless whether you are a racer or a recreational athlete. Every year the spectacular slope „Saslong” is home to the enthralling world cup downhill race. A world cup race with a long tradition, having taken place every December since 1969.

Cross-country ski

Ortisei is close to the tracks of Alpe di Siusi (reachable from Ortisei by cable railway). Here you can enjoy more than 60 km of attractive and well-kept tracks with a wonderful view on the surrounding Dolomites!
In the cross-country skiing centre of Monte Pana, above S. Cristina (approx. 4 km from us) there are several cross country trails as well as a hiking trail across forests and meadows.
Vallunga in Selva offers another wonderful scenery for cross-country ski enthusiasts. A total amount of 12 km of runs lead you from the Carabinieri sports centre to the end of the valley.


Should you wish to do something different in winter and prefer an entertaining and sociable activity to skiing, you can opt for a fun sledge run or a romantic sledge ride. Such activities are particularly suitable for families with children.

There are some runs in Ortisei in Val Gardena in the Dolomites:
• on the Alpe di Siusi (largest high alp of Europe)
• on the Rasciesa alp (from the new funicular railway station of Rasciesa there is a several kilometre long, best prepared run into the valley)

Hiking tours

If you like snowshoeing trips, in Val Gardena you can tramp on snow-covered meadows, go along mountain streams and romantic farms while you enjoy splendid views on the surrounding snowy peaks and the close contact with nature. From our hotel in Ortisei you can go hiking on the sunny Luis-Trenker-Promenade winter walking tour that takes you farther to Selva.
Snowshoeing has become very popular and fashionable in the last few years. More and more sports lovers are picking up snowshoes to go wandering across snow-covered landscapes. Here, in the heart of the Dolomites there’s an incredible array of paths you can decide to take: starting from the hotel you can walk to S. Cristina to the water falls or follow the S. Giacomo route and enjoy the wonderful views on Sassolungo and Sella.
