Beautiful ski tours await you every day in the UNESCO World Heritage - the Dolomites!

Every year on the beautiful slope SASLONG takes place a stage of World Cup Skiing - Downhill and Super G male. And every year the world champions and not only astonished by the excellent condition of the slopes and the vast panorama of the Dolomites and never boring!
The slopes of Val Gardena are always perfectly prepared even when there is no snow, every year modernized its facilities to accommodate more and more tourists coming from all over the world to admire the beautiful landscapes of the Dolomites.

The slopes of Val Gardena belong to the famous circuit of the Dolomiti Super Ski. With a single ski pass - Dolomiti Superski you can travel 1,200 km of tracks and use all the lifts in the Dolomites that will make you go over 12 ski areas. Alternatively you can also buy the Val Gardena ski pass: it will still allow you to enjoy the breathtaking view of our beautiful Dolomites and the 500 km of slopes.

And you'll also have the chance to try the well-known Sella Ronda starting directly from the Hotel Villa Emilia with the free ski bus, going to the Seceda and from there coming up with skis on right at the parking of the famous Saslong. From there it goes up with the ski to Ciampinoi and is ready for the Sella Ronda clockwise or counterclockwise. The recommendation is to start with the first gondola to Seceda to avoid the risk of being dispersed at the end of the day in some other valley.

At Hotel Villa Emilia every Saturday you will find a ski instructor of the ski school Ortisei that will give you any information you want regarding the routes to be followed during the stay and the courses for your children or for you.

For children attending the ski school of Ortisei it is also expected the service of Floc Bus that will come to pick them up and take them back to the hotel.

Dear friends of the Cross-country skiing: for you offers the Val Gardena many slopes and excellent ski instructors to come closer to this discipline. From the Alpe di Siusi, passing through Mount Pana to the Vallunga. Every day a new discovery.

And do not forget the toboggan downhill rides for adults and children! You can go up with the train to Resciesa (which is only 400m from the Hotel Villa Emilia) and from there head off with the sled along a track of 6 km or climb to the Alpe di Siusi and even there you will find several trails for fun.
