Santa Cristina Ski Resort Guide & Piste Map
Santa Cristina Resort Description
Situated in the South Tyrol, the attractive village of Santa Cristina lies on the sunny side of the famous Val Gardena region between Selva and Ortisei. Santa Cristina and Selva are practically joined together to make up the largest resort on the Sella Ronda circuit, with 175km of runs. Santa Cristina is also linked to the Dolomiti Superski area and therefore there is a wide range of skiing and snowboarding to suit all abilities. Santa Cristina is somewhat spread out and does not have much of a town centre. Therefore, if après ski is a priority, it may be beneficial to stay in the neighbouring towns of Ortisei or Selva. However, for those looking for a quieter weekend break with good skiing, Santa Cristina will be ideal for you
