Val Gardena has the mixture of three cultures, Italian, German and Ladino. The cultural diversity makes this a wonderful and unique ski resort.
An incredible huge ski area set among the beautiful dolomite mountains. Most intermediate skiing with some advance cruisers. The skiing is not real challenging, but even the most advanced skier will enjoy a week of exploring all that it has to offer.
The food is wonderul with all of the countless mountain restaurants. The price is reasonable, and even on the best ski days, you still want to take time out for a wonderful lunch or afternoon gluwein or beer.
I recommend Val Gardena for many reasons. A place one should put on there to do list.
