That special South Tyrolean feeling – priceless! Your holiday with us in the Dolomites – always at the very best price!
We have fever. World Cup fever!
If we could, we would ski all year round. But because it's easier to ski on powder snow than on grass, winter is definitely one of our favourite seasons here at Hotel Sella. And that has tradition. After all, the host family Marzola is a real skiing veteran here in Val Gardena. We are also lucky enough to be able to experience one of the most legendary races in alpine skiing up close every year. You can already tell. We are really in World Cup fever.
Skiing is in our blood
Hardly any other name is as closely associated with skiing here in Val Gardena/Gröden as "Marzola". Grandfather Gianni Marzola is considered the "inventor" of "Dolomiti Superski" and through his tireless efforts has contributed a great deal to making skiing in South Tyrol so wonderful today. The passion for the sport in the snow is also unbroken in the next generation. Ivan and Michaela Marzola were able to achieve a great deal of success as members of the Italian national team. Their brother Igor Marzola also continues the family tradition and is committed to the future of skiing in Val Gardena in his functions as lift operator and board member of the "Saslong Classic Club". And when the ski circus stops in Val Gardena in the week before Christmas, there is no other topic for the Marzolas than the World Cup. We can't blame them, because anyone who has experienced this spectacle for themselves can't escape the fascination of the Saslong course. Therefore, our tip: book your room at the Hotel Sella early enough, because during the World Cup days they sell like hot cakes.
Skiing in the World Cup ski area
You can also feel the World Cup flair away from the racing season. State-of-the-art lifts and perfectly groomed slopes await you. The best thing is: the valley station is right opposite the Hotel Sella. You are right in the middle of the most beautiful winter fairy tale in just a few steps. By the way, the Plan de Gralba lift is your gateway to the Sellaronda and Dolomiti Superski, which with its 1,200 (!) kilometres of slopes is one of the largest ski areas in the world. So, let yourself be infected by our World Cup fever - we are already looking forward to a wonderful winter with you!
