Ankündigungen & Neuigkeiten vom Manager des Val Gardena Skigebiets
~ New Piz Seteur gondola
A new cabin system “Piz Seteur” boasting a Pininfarina design will be operational in Val Gardena!
From the beginning of the 2017/18 season winter sports fans will be able to make use of a new modern connection system in Val Gardena with the Sellaronda: the new 10 seater cabin system “Piz Seteur”, is being introduced by the company of Piz Sella S.p.A. from Selva Val Gardena and it will adopt new standards of comfort, safety and performance. The cableway, of Leitner company origin, will be made up of two sections and will consolidate Val Gardena’s position of introducing quality transport systems into the area as well as bringing a new look to things: the intermediate station and the cabins themselves are among the most recent creations of the Italian Pininfarina design. The valley station was designed by Perathoner Architects.
The middle station will be next to the Gran Paradiso chairlift and the Comici II chairlift.
The cabins give both more space to customers inside the cabin and wider embark areas and so making it easier for all to board the cabin. The intermediate station is an example of perfect equilibrium between the most modern design and accurate planning in the initial project stages, and will bring a series of advantages to customers, comfort of passengers included.
And there is more besides! The system will stand out for another technical factor: thanks to the reduced speed at stations being reduced to 65 seconds with 6 cabins open there will be more time to get in and get out of the cabin in a safer and stress-free manner. With its 77 cabins (each with 10 seater) the “Piz Seteur” system will have a total capacity of 3450 persons per hour.
~ New skilift Furdenan
The Furdenan skilift in Ortisei/Oltretorrente will be replaced by a newer and longer ski lift. In future it is even easier to ski from Furdenan to the valley station of the Alpe di Siusi cable car. At the same time children and youngsters, always in the Furdenan area, can look forward to a new snow park.

Besucher-Beurteilung fuer Val Gardena
Pete M aus United Kingdom schreibt:
Just back from a fabulous week's ski holiday. First time in the Dolomites; we have been used to Three Valleys and Porte Du Soleil in France. This is another huge 'linked' ski area with something for everyone (over 110 miles skied in 6 days). The geology means that the mountain panoramas were breathtakingly different and more wild west Colorado than Alps.
In a low snow winter, the quality of pistes were outstanding; snow-making capabilities are famously good here.
Particular favourites were over Dante Cepies into Colfosco and then up over Corvara. The big sunny motorway pistes down into St. Cristina were also a lot of fun. Lifts were generally excellent, but queues on key Sella Ronda lifts were horrific. However, given it was UK school half-term, most slopes were generally not too busy (Sella Ronda excepted). French half-term overlaps with UK, meaning French resorts are jammed during this week.
Sella Ronda tour was fine, but more as an introduction to the area, to identify areas to return to, and ski more comprehensively.
We did a Crystal day tour over to 'The Hidden Valley' We started with some ski-ing in Cinque Torri area (Cliffhanger filmed here) before moving over to a vertical tele-cabine up to La Gazuoi. The Fanes range, to the right of the run is majestic. The valley walls to the left are smaller and scattered with frozen waterfalls. The run twists and turns for 7 km, creating a mysterious, secret ambience. At the bottom of the trail, you have the option of taking the horse drag, a great experience, where you hold on to ropes pulled by a pair of horses as they take you along the flat frozen river bed to the next lift.
Food and drink are all very reasonable, cost-wise, compared to Meribel, Courcheval etc. The whole area feels incredibly Austrian, although pizza and pasta are always high quality. As others have said, Luis Kellar was lively, but euro-apres-ski-pop was irritating after not too long.
Best bar, in Selva, by far (avoiding 'Stars on 45' apres-trash) was Goalies further down the main road. They have the coolest Rock playlist, and a friendly atmosphere. Run by ex-ice hockey Goalies, Alex (dad) and Andreas (son). We stayed in Hotel Pineta, in Selva; very reasonable 3*, clean, good food.
All in all, just a fantastic area, and one to which we will definitely be returning.
